Thanks for the critique..I guess I deserved that ;). It IS a big amount of
server overhead! Can it really not be implemented as a virtual server?
What should I look for..a leased server? What kind of resources? OS
suggestions, keeping in mind, I wish to use something like Frontpage/Cold
Fusion, to ease the programming of the site. Or should I go in for HTML/CGI
programming directly..CGI WOULD be CPU intensive.
Please do help me. Beginners with tall ideas, do need a lot of help, All
they can get, in fact.
With best regards.
