If you noticed the site was down for about an hour this morning, it was because we were installing the new file server! It is now live and we are hitting new bandwidth records! Does anyone notice less lag with loading on the site?

The final round of upgrading involves six new web servers and a load balancer. We have all the hardware ready, just waiting to be hooked up. Expect more news on this soon!

Be sure to read the post below if you are interested in the new Portal front page!


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

I noticed it being down, but I'm not noticing any speed changes...

Maybe that's just cause I have a crappy DSL connection, though.

Not really much change in the load times for me. Infact , now that the new portal design is up , it takes me that few seconds extra to find out what is still in judgement. Not that I'm complaining ! I love the new layout overall.

That's great Tom. I like the fast!

ALso.

Do you mind adding this series to the StarWars collection page under parodys?

I think there funny and overlooked.

The only thing I have noticed is NG has slowed down and is taking longer to load. Is a little faster loading now then at 8 AM. But still slow at the end .
