300mbps! 2003-10-20 08:09:13


Sorry for the late announcement - but NG has been running solely on 300mbps since Friday. Crazy, right? Has anyone noticed improvements? There is a good chance you might not, because we are still straining our hardware. Also, third party ad code often delays the time it takes for a page to load.

We haven't gotten our bandwidth tracking on-line for the new source, so I can't say if we are maxing it out already. I can't wait to find out, though! On Sunday we served out over 1.9 million Portal views. Two million is right around the corner!

In other news, has anyone here seen Battle Royal? I finally got an import on DVD, and it rocks. :)

Seems a tad faster over the past few days.

Again, I have to ask- how much does this shit cost?

Response to 300mbps! 2003-10-20 08:32:51

True, I noticed that myself.

Response to 300mbps! 2003-10-20 08:38:44


it's pretty fast.

Response to 300mbps! 2003-10-20 09:20:14


I have gotten quite a few Please try later server under huge amounts of stress atm messages... or under a huge load whatever it is...

but in general the loading of things has been faster!

Battle Royal Rules.. Have u seen the decent versians of the ring, ring zero, and ring 2? (the jappenese ones)

So much better than that shitty american make of the ring... The first one i saw was the american one and thought it was pretty good.. till i saw the origional and realised how much it had been ruined.

Yeah, it the shizzle my nizzle. ;) The real question is has anybody seen battle Royale 2? They seem to be protecting it with an iron chastity belt to keep americans from getting our grubby hands on it! You can just imagine what I'd wanna do with it. ;)

Response to 300mbps! 2003-10-20 09:22:50

It's still pretty much the same speed. Anyways, Battle Royale is great, as is the uncut Versus, and classic splatter fu Story of Ricky. Course you never stick around to read the BBS anyways. You lousy post and run person you. :P

I have also gotten quite a few of those "Server is under extreme load at the moment. Please click here to go back and try again" messages. I have also been getting a few of those BBS Error Messages too. I guess that is because I am on NG for 8 hours a day.

I have noticed a difference in speed, and yes it is faster...HOWEVER, on sunday, i could not access quite a few submissions because it said that there was so much traffic. SO, i think newgrounds is gunna nedd 400Mbs, within the next few months, especially seeing as christmas and halloween are coming

It has been blazingly fast at loading movies this weekend, I suspected the new bandwidth was up. But I have been getting a lot of "server under extreme load" errors at peak times.

Response to 300mbps! 2003-10-20 12:37:41


W00t!

uploads.newgrounds.com doesn't serve movies every so often, but it seems to fix itsself within an hour or so every time it happens.

And aside from the regular stuff, NG does seem a little faster.

sure it sounds super speedy, but ive gotten a few errors w/the server being under extreme load...

maybe its just cuz i get on @ peak hours, or somethin

300mbps!

Response to 300mbps! 2003-10-20 18:11:34


It's sped up, but not so much that I've noticed it that much. Maybe its because i have cable modem and everything is fast anyway....

..but i do get a lot of "server under extreme load" messages.

You said a while back that while you were waiting for the bandwidth upgrade that you put in an order for two more servers. When can they be put in?

Good news anyway.

Response to 300mbps! 2003-10-20 18:12:16
