1. Move all the graphics to outside servers. Then we will cut down the
amount of traffic considerable (at least to half).

2. Move the DB to MySQL, and let other sites mirror it. Pushing the stats
as a mysqldumped gzipped -9'ed file would not be nearly as hard. And then
we would get around all those stupid Microsoft SQL server is not made to
support more than xyz simultaneous users but we are still the best messages.

What amount of traffic are we talking ?
