New database server online! 2003-07-23 21:06:46


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. We had some problems with the site running slower earlier today, but it wasn't related to the new database, it may have been a network problem.

Well, the site's certainly running faster right now. Good job. It's only a matter of time before you need to get more database servers though. One of these days, every room of the Fulp house is going to have a Cray supercomputer in it. I wonder how fast the site will be then...

I wanted Tom to make the post, but I guess he's been busy today and if I didn't post it today it would be silly for him to post it a day or two days from now saying "Oh, by the way we put up the new database server 2 days ago, anyone notice a difference?" hehe.

Since none of the servers for Newgrounds are actually in either Wade's or Tom's house, I guess we'll never know.

i thought it was a touch faster...finally it can move at a decent speed.

Response to New database server online! 2003-07-23 21:26:53


Thanks for the good news, Wade. I hadn't noticed many errors or slow down as of late but i'm sure this will help even more. You guys care so much for us users.=)


I could surely die

If I only had some pie

to tell the truth, i havnt had any errors since i got back on friday, other than using up my 4 posts per half hour, and once in a while my connection would drop, but thats not NG's fault, now it's gonna be even better...

wade, i see what you mean, what's he busy with anyways? better be Pico2

he could have also just lied and said "we just got a new server put in" i wouldent have known the difference

Finally! This place was driving me nuts with the damn errors! I mean, I had to wait forever to go to the next page, and for what? An error! But now this place seems to be running much smoother, and faster too.

Response to New database server online! 2003-07-23 22:30:26


Seems pretty good so far. Not an error yet.

Response to New database server online! 2003-07-23 22:31:08


WEll, even before now i have noticed a great change in NG performance! The BBS has been running great this past wee k with no errors (barely any lol)

The pages have been loading faster for me too! Now i can DEFINATLY see a differene. Good job yall, i swear to god you guys at NG are my idols..

Response to New database server online! 2003-07-23 22:31:23


yeah, it is faster. yay

Response to New database server online! 2003-07-23 22:32:12


you did a fantastic job, heck, we can now be 240 people on the BBS instead just the ususal 50 ;)

I haven't gotten an error since Liljim worked/toyed with the back-end coding. It's running smoothly. But I haven't really noticed a difference in speed though, just no more errors.

I'll second that...whatever that means. I actually noticed a 'hiccup' in the sites performance after Wade made that post, but it seems to be ok now.

Response to New database server online! 2003-07-23 22:35:34


Off topic, but I love the multi-author system. There's a problem though, when someone votes on a movie, it shows the other's other works on the finished voting screen, but it only shows the main author and not the others who have been added. Can this be fixed?

While you are at it, will you ever be working on a way for all the collaborators to reply to reviews? Because now, only the person who submits the movie can reply to the reviews, no?

Response to New database server online! 2003-07-23 22:47:49


the site is definitely running better.
