    Tesla Motors Club was unreachable by me for about 4 days with an error of "Bandwidth Exceeded".

    What was the problem? Is there anything we subscribers can do to help prevent that in the future?

    YAYYY, I am happy but this was painful.

    I have had so much Tesla news to Post in the last week...

    Forgotten most of it now.

    I'm also willing to make a donation to help this from happening again.

    It simply ran out of bandwidth and I couldn't get a hold of the host for a few days. I am going to move to a new host anyways within the next week hopefully.
    I am sorry that happened and it doesn't have to do with money or anything.
    But I will consider the whole paypal thing to support the site for the future.
    Thanks

    I have also had several days over the past 2 weeks where I cannot connect to TMC due to "Database Error" What is causing this problem, and why has this site had so many issues recently?

    Has everyone else experienced the same problem, or is it just me? Is there anything that can be done to help fix it?

    Hopefully we are now on a new server and this is no longer a problem.
