    We have moved to a new server - report issues here

    Due to stability and technical issues our hosting provider is going to move the site to a new server.


    The site will be offline for about 2-3 hours during the move.


    We will advise as we progress the changes.

    I know as much as you do Mark, and anything that's makes this Forum run better when I am on here in the Late Evenings especially, is Good News to me.

    Technical details... we are moving to a server that is a different virtual technology and has more memory.

    The above is a test from near where we are hosted, i.e. not having traffic across the Pacific.

    So far, the site speed(load times) has been great.

    On cable here, so you expect quickish load times.
    Prior to this move, many times you'd wait a few seconds(maybe up to 20-30sec) for a page to load .. and sometimes the inevitable load error/crash/instability.

    So far, all page loads(many of them) have been instant.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that page load time is mirrored here in Aus .. on a fast connection of course.

    The old server environment had issues, this incarnation is a different technology and we have more memory, i.e. more cached.
    It actually costs us a few dollars less per month

    ....
    Whatever it is, all my page load times are in a second or two.
    in months gone by, I'd load up 5 to 10 tabs with new posts, and sometimes each tab would take minutes to load up fully(watching the little rotate-y load icon in FF to swish around).

    Just loaded 6 new tabs, at random, all with new posts .. and they all finished loaded before I had a chance to select the next one to load into a new tab again.
    I'm just so used to having 5 tabs or so all waiting to load up, and me going back to the new posts page looking for more.


    .. so this new tech/extra memory deal is working great.

    The evenings I spend on here have improved I actually get to bed well before mid-night now, so Thanks.
    The pages download faster and I don't get hypnotised watching that little blue thingy going round and round where I want to pick the MacBook up and throw it out the window.
    Actually I dont know if it was a good thing as hubby said maybe its time to buy a new MacBook, goodness its only 4 years old now and then I get a email from Apple this week humm nice but pricey
