- Made a spoof that LookSmart had bought the chats. Got a lot of fun reactions since they were the ones who bought and shut down Beseen.
- Ordered a dedicated server from Central Internet Web Hosting, but they never got it to work. Was refunded later on.
- Investigated other dedicated server hosts. Eventually settled on ServerBeach.
- First month on ServerBeach was chaotic since the machine would randomly reboot.
- Got a completely new machine from ServerBeach since the old was declared dead. Has been on the new one ever since, with no problems.
- 380 chats, 15000 lines per day, 110 daily chatters.
