First version was launched back in November 2009. For a year it was operating on Pentium II 367,50 MHz with 256 DIMM RAM handling about 2 million images. It was largely abandoned after reaching 5 million posts in May 2011 (those were duplicate accross indexed boorus, not separate images with list of sources as now). During this period it ran on the single server in my bathroom (mind you, it was upgraded to Pentium-D 3 GHz with 1 GiB RAM in mid-2010).
In March 2015 I suddenly decided to revamp the entire thing – something I have been planning for years and have almost started a few times. This attempt turned to be a success and now you see what has become of it. IbSearch has moved to its own domain – or rather two (.ch and .xxx).
Unlike previous two versions, IbSearch 3 runs on whole lot of servers including several dedicated robots that automatically crawl various boorus adding, updating, deleting and linking together images that are both old and just uploaded. Having such an unattended crawler was my dream from day one. Dreams come true, you see.
Oh, and since this swarm of servers can no more fit in my bathroom (although I could use their heat in the winter) they live in a neightboor data center.
Because IbSearch is my hobby project I would very much like to hear what you have to say – cheers, feedback, suggestions, bug reports. Say

Suggestion (2): I think updating the site every month or so would be a good idea, seeing as alot of the images posted on other boards in the last half year dont seem to ever make their way to ibsearch somehow. It would be nice if this could be fixed, or if you could find a way to have a bot scan for new images everyonce in a while for popular tags
