Yup... AF now has its very own Web Server AND its very own super-powered DB server so let's hope it kicks some serious you know what for the forseeable future. Of course if this place keeps growing at an alarming rate, you never know.
This should also make Phandroid and our upcoming Applications site much, MUCH faster since they don't have the burden of AF's ridiculous traffic.
Regarding the "Top Stats"... I'm not sure about that but we can discuss. If we test it out I'd like to have our contracted server expert around and available just in case. So perhaps we'll test drive it next week, but I wouldn't expect to see it before that.
I miss having it too... but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
