Halloween 2008

Post by HalloweenCom » Fri Oct 31, 2008 4:16 pm

As you can probably image, there are a ton of people visiting today! The web server has been just swamped all day and yesterday. I made a few changes so that hopefully the forums area will be able to handle the load. (I know that this morning, earlier, it was having problems, but I think they are resolved now.)

Happy Halloween!

I have moved everything to an even faster/better server today. Halloween 2008 was on a dual-quad core machine with 4GB of memory. Even then the server was quite busy for a lot of October, particularly the last week.

The new server is a cluster, so it should be able to handle just about anything, so hopefully Halloween 2009 will be very smooth.

Please let me know if you notice it faster even now - it seems so to me.
