<br><br><div style="direction: ltr; margin-left: 40px;"><span class="q">> BTW, how can I get involved in managing/monitoring the soservers?<br>> Tuning mysql and apache configurations would make sense before<br>> buying hardware.
<br><br></span></div><div style="direction: ltr; margin-left: 40px;">ask NickH or TomH they've been doing exactly this.</div><br>Happy to ear that :) Is there a way I can contact them more directly than mail, like IRC or instant messenging?

You don't need<br>peoples words, or to tie it just to the magic issue of two servers.<br><br></div>Happy again to ear they may get away! - we may discuss the issues live in a couple of days anyway :P I am pretty confident OSM can live on a fundraising model; wikipedia has been running for a long time on that model, and so are a lot of other websites, we should at least give it a try :)
