I tried going on eariler today, but NewGrounds couldn't be found. That must be the reason why.
I was watching Boy Machine, and it kept freezing in places, and it actually just stopped near the end. I tried unticking then reticking Play, but nothing happened. I've never had this problem before. Think it might be something to do with tthe server change?

Browsing GameFAQs mostly, and catching up on a few things. I'd played my poker in the morning.

There were some teething issues with the database configuration when Tim brought the webservers back online, which meant I had to shut down the database, make some changes two or three times (hence both code 1s and code 3s), before bringing the database back up.

And yes, the load balancer is now in place. Nightly e-mails may not go out tonight, but they should start going back out in the next couple of days.

Ah cool, any of that have anything to do with the BBS and profiles (the extraneous and much less optional or heavily visited portion of the site) slower? I would ask if everything is back in order and running smoothly, but since I haven't got any errors recently, I'll just assume it is.

Good, but I'm not sure what you mean by nightly emails. D'ya mean the daily emails on top submissions that are optional?

Well, generally front page postings get a crapload of views, seeing as how they're on the front page of a website that gets something like 500 thousand unique hits a day on a slow day.

I'd say 4 pages of responses isn't all that bad, actually.

Indeed! I think Newgrounds is the fastest loading website I have ever visited (comparing size)! This is awesome!

It happened even quicker, as I just realized they did it on daylights savings time.

Yeah, ditto here!

I went on to check out the Newgrounds portal and it didn't exist, NONE of my NG links worked! I thought NG was gone for good, maybe shut down for legal reasons or something!
