Dave, what are you doing?

We ask so much of our servers — hundreds of thousands of requests per day, no breaks, slave wages… It’s a hard life. Well, this morning our server decided it had enough and went on strike.

You’ll probably notice that everything is running slow or not at all. There is simply too much traffic for the amount of available memory.

So what are we doing about it?

This morning and afternoon we started a complete backup of the whole system so that this evening we can resize the server – double the memory, double the hard-drive space, etc. This means the server will be slow for the rest of the afternoon and then be down for about a half hour this evening. After that, you should notice a significant increase in speed.

Thanks for being patient while we grow!

  1. No wonder why I cann’t upload any of my pictures, as you are taking all the memory. Well I have uploaded a few pics to Picasa if you want to veiw. I ‘ll take to you when I get more time.

    1. Hey Sam. Great to see that you are trying! The problem is actually due to the face that we have limited uploads to 1mb and you are trying to upload bigger images. Picassa is a great option though and you can embed a slideshow from picassa directly into your blog post.
