New hardware being installed now with go faster stripes!
We've been installing some new hardware today.. first of all a new switch with 1G on all ports which is nifty and makes things like backups and replication go much faster since server to server traffic zips along nicely now.
Also we installed a new primary db server for BoardTracker and we just finished moving all the data - bet you didn't even notice since the site stayed online and fully functional throughout.. nifty! Right now as I type this we are replicating to all the slave servers..
In case you are wondering why our overworked and underpaid spiders are slacking at the moment this is the reason..
We also have a bunch of fancy blade servers coming as soon as the Dell factory can get them shipped to us however they say that will take a few weeks..
Anyway, that concludes todays extra geeky blog entry..
