View Full Version : Server upgrade

10-24-2011, 09:24 PM
In speaking with the hosting service about recent slow loading, we decided to upgrade to a grid server system.

What has been slowing the forum down has been heavier than normal load on the single server we were on. with the grid server system, the load should balance between a grid of servers thus speeding up page loading, etc.

Of course, this will not speed up anyones computer, no will it compensate for slow ISP speed, but it should allow you to get the most you can out of your own system.

This migration will take place over the next three days, and we have been assured that there will be no down time involved. We are all familiar with Murphy's law however. shold there be any issues, they should be attended to rapidly, so please bear with us as we once again strive to move forward in our quest for excellence here at The Q Joint.

Thank You

It has been pissing me off, but I thought it was just my connection.....until I tried a few others.

The site is back up to speed where it should be. The for ever loading pages were really bringin me down.

I know Bill was saying it always too forever for his pages to load .. he will be a true test if we can bait him in. Where's Fatback?? :msn-wink:

We were told that the full migration could take as long as three days. We were also told that there might be issues here and there along the way, but that there should be no service interruption.

The migration should be complete by the end of the day today.

Your issues may have occurred due to part of the migration process.

Is it better now?
