0 basically means your computer was too impatient.

4xx means something could not be found or accessed... 403, 404, etc. Should never see this.
500 means something is up with the php call... you shouldn't see this except under extremely heavy load.
503 usually means I'm restarting the database.

Ooooh! *raises hand*

For me, the SB keeps like, freezing. For a bit it automagically shows new messages and then it just... stops. And I have to refresh the browser to see the messages. Not a big deal really, but kinda odd.

I have a high speed connection and I'm using uhm... IE 7.0.6001.18000

That's rather common, you can get it to restart normally by typing int the box. It's actually a bit of a  feature else we'd be getting hammered hard >_>

Is this a situation that's, "We have a great new server, but its already time to start planning the next one?" cause if it is im cool with that, Im hoping that work picks up so I can donate money, Or since I work at MS and we throw good crap out all the time perhaps even find a server and rescue it from PC recycle (purchase from PCR) .

...not unless someone is planning to donate several thousand dollars. I would appreciate that, to be sure >_>

But no, I plan on having this server last us quite awhile.

If a recent post by RandomBloke is any indication, 572 characters.

999 characters, but some symbols will take up more than one character.
