Scheduled Site Downtime

Our site will be offline for approximately one hour between 2am and 5am EDT tomorrow, May 7th, 2010 for hardware upgrades. Two new processors are being installed for our server.

We apologize in advance to all international members who this will inconvenience, but we hope to see you after the upgrade! Chances are that the maintenance will in fact take less time than expected.

Me too- I will actually be sleeping for once :P Last time the technicians pulled off this sort of upgrade in about half an hour. And afterwards you'll be happy to know our server uses some of Intel's fastest processors out there

Maintenance is now complete

Our server now equipped with 12 cutting-edge processor cores, plus another 12 virtual cores.

Not surprisingly, this upgrade has seemed to lower server load by 0.5 and is already shaving 0.05-0.20s off the page generation time. For example, the DSLR discussion forum view is now generated in about 0.2s instead of 0.35s.

Enjoy the increased speed!
