    Good, UBB is a crappy script, i have no idea why it is regarded as the 'Best' Forum script.

    Thinking about UBB? READ THIS!

    I got this little note from my host today which I found to be very interesting and maybe you will to. I have removed their name, but let me say that they have been a great host with top notch reliablity and features. So, here it is:

    This message is mostly directed at users with
    CGI programs on **** Hosting.

    Please be aware that a server's CPU power is shared
    with others users on the same server. If your CGIs
    consume more than 10% of the server's CPU at a time,
    it will have to be removed. Such consumption affects the performance of other web sites.

    This week, we will thoroughly monitor all CGIs on all
    of our servers. Removal requests will be sent to users
    of high CPU CGIs.

    This also applies to software causing MySQL to consume
    large amounts of CPU power.

    On another note, we'd like to remind you all that
    the UBB (Ultimate Bulletin Board) is not allowed
    on **** Hosting, as it is a CPU hog. Even though this
    has always been on our policies, we know it's being
    used. Please remove it if you are using it.

    I had asked them about Vbulletin (1.1x) and they have no complaints about its use of resources.
