    In an effort to resolve a few errors (including the 'daily backups' error), improve stability and better spread our services across resources we are putting a new dedicated database server online in the morning for AF. There may also be some changes made to various services to further optimize everything.

    Expect some downtime between the hours of 5:00am and 7:00am Central tomorrow while this is put into place and configurations are made. Assuming everything goes smoothly we don't expect disruption beyond that.

    Thanks!

    Update: Some tweaks are still being ironed out right now, but we can call this a success! Let us know if you have any problems through the next couple days. Thanks!

    I didn't have much to do with this one other than agree we needed it done, partake in some convo back and forth, and make the announcement.

    Thank Rob for payin' for it, and the server guys for doing all the work. ;)

    Seeing some intermittent periods of long refresh lag. I am going to assume this is while tweaks are being performed. I'll give it a couple of days to settle in.

    Ja me too :/

    Maybe something went wrong?

    Now it takes me twice as long to find people to harass with spam now! :)

    xD

    But all jokes aside I hope everything went well with the transfer of servers though.

    You guys do an amazing job and I just can't believe it is all for free. ;)

    I am really greatful. :)

    Thanks for the comments about the whos online, that bit of code takes a LONG time to generate, and so i order to increase load times of the homepage, i changed the way its generated, i can put it back to being alphabetical order easy enough.
