    Default News and Updates [08/09/2010]

    StopTazmo Users,

    It’s about time I made another update on our latest happenings so here it is.

    1. StopTazmo will remain open. I know a few months ago I stated I did not know what was going to happen. We will remain open so please continue to visit and tell your friends about us.

    2. All these websites shutting down and removing licensed manga has worried me and still does. Many of you might know already I spent an entire day going through Mirror 3 and then removing series licensed to TokyoPOP/VIZ. I also need to remove YenPress series from Mirror 3 and this will be done over the next week or so.

    I will be spending time looking through Mirror 1 and doing the same so that we are not hosting a huge number of licensed series making us targets of lawsuits. This might mean a number of Manga series being removed.

    3. I counter balanced removing the licensed series on Mirror 3 with new series (130 or so new ones) and I plan on doing the same for Mirror 1. I spent a few hours yesterday and starting on Wednesday I will start again so I can perhaps have another 100 new series added to replace any series that will be removed. I do not have a list yet, but the less of a target we are the better so I hope you all understand.

    4. I still get a lot of PM’s asking about this so I just want to mention this. It’s very important for you to donate to keep us online. In June we brought in about $355, in July it was about $425. It’s the 9th today and we are already at $280 so I hope we can reach our goal. If many of you pay attention to other sites such as GotLurk (#Lurk) you probably notice they had their servers terminated because not enough donations came in, if we don’t break even the difference is my CC picks up the slack. I understand not all of you have PayPal accounts and if you don’t and want to help think about posting about us on your Twitter/Facebook/MySpace/Other social networking accounts where appropriate. I do spend a lot of time updating; it takes about an hour a day to collect updates, find missing chapters and to upload them. I just figured I should let you know that running this site is time consuming and virtually ad-free (Will work on fixing that later ).

    5. One other thing I should mention is our machines are getting low on space so in the next week or so I might need to take them both offline to move manga series to other hard drives as maintaining our Manga Viewer doubles our space requirement (Will add the link to the Manga Viewer again in the next day or two). This is not a huge deal, just a few hours downtime but in the future I might need to see if there is support for raising $200 for switching one of our smaller drives out for a 1TB drive but no need to worry right now as I can clear up a good 40GB in space by clearing our LATEST_DOWNLOADS folder.

    I think this is it for now but if not I will edit this post. I just wanted to keep you all informed of what is going on here.

    At one point you mentioned possibly setting up a script to automatically clear out anything over a month old in Latest Downloads. Doing that would be a way to cap, roughly speaking, how much space it uses.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    Does old forum threads take up space? Maybe consider along those line to save space...

    I never automated it, but that might actually be a good idea but won't really save us any space in the long run.

    Our actual forum is hosted on another machine so deleting threads won't save any space on the manga servers.

    I figure I should note this. I will be leaving early Saturday and might not be back until Tuesday, so do not worry if you do not see me for a few days
