The new fileserver is FINALLY on-line! Do you sense a difference in site performance as of Tuesday night around midnight?


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Have yet to run into one of those "server's too busy to accomodate your request" pages, so methinks it's working.

Excellent.

you and i both know that it is very hard to tell late at night. but really the site has been running great lately! as opposed to like the old 5 or 6 errors a page i got at the very worst point(i almost didnt come back) it is like a whole new site! i would say in the last week i have gotten maby 1 - 2 errors at all...over the entire week(excluding when the site is down) i like the way things are going. you know, when you put a gold fish in a small tank it stays small, but if ya give it more space, it becomes as large as its environment allowes, web sites are the same way. Luv ya Tom.

Sorry to be the one spreading bad news, but I just got about 10 error messages in a row. But keep in mind that I would hit refresh over and over with like a 2 second interval between the new error page. And it stopped after about a minute, so it wasn't that bad, but I did get the messages.

Amazingly, yes, i thought it was maybe because there wasn't as many users online, but when they did. It was still very fast! This is the fastest i've ever seen it!

I do! There's 25% more endurance and about 12% more girth. Plus, the erection lasted a whole 5 hours !!! I was very satisfied. . . . .

This calls for some tequila shots

Do you recall what error message you got? It's possible a nightly script was running at that time.

Everything seems to be running the same for me, but there has not been that much traffic thus far.

Everything's running O.K for me. Although i did notice the posts made yesterday was almost half the amount made on monday : /

...might be due to errors?

Yea, I had been getting some errors last night as well, but nighttime is always the busiest so it's hard to tell if it's really the site or just the traffic.

No errors today. Running smooth!

When we brought the site back online, the database was disabled to prevent anyone from uploading any files etc - so there's a good chance that the errors you saw were being thrown from the pages because they couldn't access the database (because it had been shut down), not because there were problems with the database. :)

I'm on broadband, with a ridiculously fast connection, so I don't know if things are running faster or not, but it's definitely smoother (haven't got a single "hiccup"/error yet).
