I am not actually using aardvark but a similar script.
I intend to use it but I am not sure that it will change something.
I have in fact this problem:
Too Many Connection
I have in fact a lot of sites suscribed and so a lot of hits in to count.
But I have my own dedicated server with 1.6 ghz and 512 mo RAM. Isn't it sufficient to run a top sites that has rather popular sites suscribed? (the top members have 4000 unique per day, the other 1600, 600, 200, ...).
I have seen Jeremy that u have itopsites and that there are a lot of members, so I wonder how you succeed to do that? Do you have a BIG server?
Or is just simply your script that is better than the others?
I hope you can answer me about this because I would like to continue to run my top site without having to pay more:
