Server
« on: Sat May, 25 @ 10:58 AM (pacific) »
There may be some sever down time over the next few days. I am migrating my operations over to a new server and there can be some hiccups along the way. If you notice anything you might see that the board is not loading for a few mins or a few hours at some point(s).

Don't worry it will come back. :)

Ok, we are moved. Site should be a bit snappier as well.

Sorry about the site outage last night. I done blowed up the server :)

But then it was too late at night to fix it.

I'll probably be moving the site again, but thanks for being part of my experiment. Oh I didn't tell you, you were guinea pigs?

But actually I was testing a little higher end hosting service. It has its nice points and performance is good but it is too expensive for what it is. ~$60/mo and really for it to be right I would need a higher level plan ~$75/mo and that is too much.

Thanks, but don't worry about the money. I make money at the hosting thing. Obviously LZR is gratis, but I have a number of paying clients, local businesses etc.

Round and round they go. Where they'll stop, nobody knows. Server #5. :)

This one feels good.

I know nothing about these things. But what I can say is, is that I've noticed that the site is quite a bit faster now!
Nice work Alex!

Good, that's is exactly what I was hoping for. This new host is working very well on my end as well. They strike (what I consider) a good balance between price and resources while keeping performance top notch.
