Some of you may have experienced some access issues the last few days. Database errors, pages not loading, things timing out.
Well, after some digging we figured out part of the problem. We're seeing a large spike in traffic, resulting in us maxing out the server we're on. Right now, a major server upgrade isn't financially possible. With the down state of the economy, there isn't another $200 a month in the operating budget to cover the cost increase of a new box. Right now, we're doing some intensive performance tuning. Hopefully you're already seeing some faster page loads and quicker access. I'm going to be evaluating this over the next few days and determining what other options we have. We may add additional memory to the server, which will hopefully boost things a bit as well. If we do, we'll post a notice at least a day or 2 in advance. We're also going to be performing some additional software updates in the near future so we may have some down time then as well. I'll announce that in advance.
I apologize for the inconvenience, and want everyone to know we're working on it.
