    Important Site Information

    Sorry about the outage earlier. I was hoping to get lucky and not have to take site down, but updated to php needed an apache up-date and restart. Over the next few days I will be applying all of the updates I have been working on so expect a little site weirdness. If you have any bugs that persist after clearing cache of Volvospeed temp files, feel free to submit a bug report under the support tab at the top. Some of these updates are moving towards upgrades I have planned for this server. I hope to have the site running mirrored on new box within a week or so. New box will be dual e5-1650s for those who care. That should help with server side a good bit, but main bottle neck is still i/o. I saw some black Friday sales pop up on drives and ram. If we can raise a little bit of money we can upgrade the SAS to RAID 10 which should help A LOT, donation link in sidebar. So if we hit our goal that is the plan. If we do not get close I will just throw another 16gb in the machine and increase cache threads. Either way, expect the site to be a lot faster in the next few weeks, and hopefully I have gotten to most of the bugs.

    Garage and Member Feedback

    Still working on some of the updates and bugs, but member feedback and garage should be working again now. I have a few more issues to run down with files and bugs, but getting there. If you use the garage, let me know if you have any issues.

These tags are helping us organize topics as well as speed up searching. Even though the site now supports three letter searches, there are still times where you may want to search for similar topics. This is where tags come in handy. At the very least you should use them when asking for help within a repair forum. Tagging a post with the model and year your car is will assist in people giving you an accurate and rapid answer. For example if your 1995 T5R has an issue with the egr valve, you would tag your post as: t5r, 1995, egr. Doing this not only helps us answer you, but also helps future members searching for answers. </font></font> </p> <p style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);"><font face="Arial, sans-serif"><font style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">For those of you who have been asking, lifetime supporting memberships will be going on sale shortly.

    For Sale Updates

    Just a quick update on for sale. Tagging an ebay item with vs304050 in the title will still import the item to Volvospeed within a few hours. In addition I have added a few items I am seeing searched for a lot. For example, the cheapest K&N filter for the Volvo 850 will be imported hourly as well as the cheapest current price on D2 coilovers. There are several items on the import feed, but if you feel something should be added post it here. If you want to subscribe to the raw RSS feed you can here: http://feeds.feedburner.com/VolvospeedEbayDealPublished

    Blog Updates

    Just a small update to allow tags to be used in blogs as well as clean up the look. For those with major build projects this is now probably the cleanest option. Just create an album in the gallery then link the gallery to your blog. This will auto import all your images including future ones and allow you to build a blog you can moderate yourself.

    I Love Google

    I love google. All seriousness I know they do tons of stupid moves. Most recently the delayed launch of google+ for business comes to mind. Before that there was the whole no google+ access for apps users. All of that aside, google is an amazing company. Look how much information they sort on a daily basis. I tell people all the time, "unless google's servers are all down I do not want to hear a stupid comment from you". Anyone who seriously thinks google sucks must have no idea how much is going on behind the scene. They bring you a full online office suite with apps, search engines, video hosting with youtube, maps, gps, anything you can think of and 99% of the time free to the end used. For those reasons I laugh when people say google+ does not stand a chance against facebook. Google can leverage SEO against their google+ pages, which FB cannot. Add to that they own youtube, and are now sorting your search results based on who you are friends with. Tie it all together with google apps and maps and there is really no reason to leave. What I like more is that unlike facebook google+ is encouraging sites to develop their own content not content on facebook. I really think from the business standpoint facebook set the internet back years. If you have any doubt just look at it from a visual stand point. Look at volvospeed's facebook page then their google+ page. What looks cleaner to you: https://plus.google....18952788527986/ http://www.facebook....ct/465598200213
  14. If you use Google, why not take a second and follow the Volvospeed+ page. This will not only help you stay up to date on any issue with the server, but future contests will be pre-announced on Volvospeed+. This also ties into the +1 found at the bottom of each Volvospeed post. +1ing a post will make it easier for you to find in the future as google+ ties in directly to google search. So if you see anything you may want to find in the future, +1 it. It not only helps us, but helps you later on. Try it out and let us know what you think! Check us out today on Volvospeed+

    Increased Facebook Integration

    As always Volvospeed has a few things cooking. Next up is increased integration to both ebay and Facebook. If you have a facebook account be sure to "Like" Volvospeed Connect. Once you do you can help out by tagging a few Volvo related photos as Volvospeed Connect. This will help us develop a smoother running site that is less reliant on any specific social network site or image host.

    Wiki Added

    Added a wiki for volvospeed
  20. Well I finishd all the Volvo stereo stuff I can do at this time so I decided to do a write up on fiberglass boxes. I will work on it and have it posted in a week or two. This box fits in the goofy side panel of an Explorer. I thought I could finish it in one day but I guessed wrong. So the rest of the pics will be up tomorrow.

    Tuesday March 15th 2005

    I stayed up late last night rebuilding the libs for GD and all the images. Earlier I had my first free time in months. I fixed the gallery and upped the space members had. It was my only time to self, but I figured the members were very loyal and it would make them happy. I'm lucky to have so many helpful people.
