I tried to find a kink on the left for FP, but there is none, although at this point it generates for me 10 times more than LO and  SSP (I am not at GimmeStock...),  Tyler, could you add one please?  They really deserve a spot.  Even if the sales are slow, they are steady, the site is well taken cared of, and the spirit is good.  Thanks.

On their site this morning there was an announcement about  their solar power backup which was put in use successfully, I really appreciate this kind of information.  Here it is:

power outage and SOLAR SYSTEM BACK-UP
FeatureImage, Elena
on 12/9/2006

We always were aware ot the fact that solar panels are an excellent solution for generating power to run our servers.

A power outage that began about 6:00 pm, friday, December 8, left most of the downtown Santa Cruz without lights.

FeaturePics.com (our main servers are in Santa Cruz) was responding...

YES!!!! WE HAVE SOLAR SYSTEM BACK-UP!:)

Having solar system back-up will be a requirement for all our future server expansion as we go forward.

SORRY FOR THE REVIEWING DELAY.

Ha !    ;D
Does it rain a lot in Santa Cruz ?  If they were in Chicago, wind turbines would be the choice I suppose...

Thinking about the announcement, I thought that apologizing for the reviewing delay when they usually review the pictures within 24 hours, and making this announcement within this 24h frame should be a source of inspiration for most of the other sites.
