Is it just me or are things a bit snappier already?

It's only slowing down during games, specifically right after big events (good and bad).

Edit: for comparison, right now there are less than 30 people on the site, compared with 60-75 during the game. In last year's playoffs we were 150-200 with regularity.

Yeah, the board runs fine most of the time; it's just when something happens in a game that it locks up.

Alright...apparently they have come out with new servers in the past 8 or so years. It's time for NSB to get an upgrade!

I'm taking suggestions on when I should schedule 4-8 hours of downtime to move to a new server.

I vote for Monday. No games scheduled unless there's a tiebreak in the NLWC.

Holy crap...I really should have upgraded before now. I'm going to get 8x the RAM (4gb -> 32gb), move from a SATA drive to a SSD raid configuration, get an extra terabyte of storage (on SATA), and a quad core Xeon processor vs buster old ass cpu. For the same amount of money per month.

That should speed things up.

Probably going to work on the upgrade tonight. So, any posts made for the rest of the evening might get lost in translation.

So they're almost as responsive as the boards then.

The DNS change appears to still be rolling out. Sometimes I get the old forum and sometimes this one.

I keep coming back here to help try and pass a dreary workday, but the most active threads mostly tend to be Bears or Bulls-related. Please fix. Thanks.

Any way you can remove the links on the bottom of the page? I've accidentally clicked on them and they lead to Russian spam pages.
