The only comp I use to visit NG has a 56K modem and more often than not, flash movies would load half way and then just stop dead. With the new server, this hasn't happened yet. One question, though... Does this have anything to do with the new server:

The NG servers were never in anyone's house. The computers you saw were just part of a home LAN that were in Tom's old apartment. These were computers we'd connect through to access the internet, they had nothing to do with hosting Newgrounds.com. The Newgrounds servers have always been in a colocation center in New York City and we rent space there. We hae one full rack at our disposal.

Currently we have the following servers in place:

4 PHP servers (Web servers)
2 SWF servers (Serve the .SWF files)
1 file server
1 database server
1 mail server
1 bulk mail server
1 hosting server (for some of the NG network sites, and no we aren't offering hosting at this time, these were sites that Troma had hosted and we took them over for the time being)

Soon we will have a 5th PHP server once the old database server is converted into a web server.

We also have 2 new web servers ready to go but we are waiting for a new switch as our current switch doesn't have any available ports.

We also have another server set up as a router.

I noticed on Wednesday that the server clocks might have been 4 hours slow. For example, when I posted a message at 1:20 PM Eastern Standard Time, it claimed to be posted at 9:20 AM. I'm glad that problem was solved.

The new database server was put online this morning. This should help speed up things like the NG search, bbs, and other database driven features of the site (almost everything). Let us know if you've noticed a difference.

Its great that you've sped up newgrounds because it seems a bit faster then usual nice work.

Some strange way the PROFILES Load alot of slower since then....

Is that normal for that new dataBase server? I guess not...

I was wondering why things seemed a bit faster, thought maybe my DSl had a sudden burst of speed. Anyways it's great.

I noticed that my popularity rating plummeted. Is this a server problem? I was about 5,000, and now I am a number that shouldn't technically exist(2,000 higher than the max people with accounts).
