NOTICE: May have lost a few posts

Sun Aug 27, 2006 9:32 pm

We just cut back over from the backup DB server to the primary. In the process, we may have lost some forum and news comments posts made between approximately 9:09PM and 9:30PM tonight. With luck, we didn't break anything else.

I didn't post, so all is well.
Everyone else sucks, so no worries there as well.

I noticed the pages took a little longer to load.

Thanx for the update. :D

Are we getting a server upgrade soon, or is that not in the works any time soon?

I don't know. Does your server need to be upgraded? :)

Actually, we have two bitch-ass fast servers almost ready to roll. Not sure we need 'em, but they should help during big traffic peaks.

If I have time, yeah. The boxes were bought in December, so it's really crazy. We've just had other priorities. They're still not quite ready.

December, guess they are still the cool running ones and not the blazing hot super duper HE's 2.8/3.0GHz RevF's. :)
The Model M is not for the faint of heart. You either like them or hate them.

Like any of the P4s or Xeons that could have been purchased back then ran, oh so much cooler. :roll:
