Welcome to the new box

— 5:20 PM on October 9, 2001

If you're reading this, you're seeing our new server. We just cut over here in the middle of a very busy day, so there may be a little confusion. However, I think it's worth it. I had really hoped to bring this new box online before the Athlon XP review went live, but it wasn't quite ready yet. Once we'd spent a whole day nearly paralyzed because the old server couldn't take it, I made a snap decision to go ahead and cut over.

So far, the new box is handling the load well. The old server was pegged at 100% CPU utilization all day long, but on this box, each CPU is chugging along between 85-90% idle. It's smooth and creamy. You've gotta love duallies running the Linux 2.4 kernel.

As always, let me know if you see any problems.
