  • The Server Switch- any comments?

    Okay, today (3/9/09) we switched over to our new, huge bank of servers! Somewhere machines are humming, lights flashing, and things are.... WORKING! YESSS!

    So far it looks like our site is smokin' fast, with better page load times than we've seen in a long time. But that's just my experience.

    I am very interested in your comments on how it is working for you (or not working). How about it?

    Seemless. I seem to be limited only by my internet connection speed now.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

      It seems to be cruising along quite smooth and very quick Mike. I have had no issues and it was only done for a short period of time. I was able to keep from from going through ODD withdrawles

        Looks good to me. I didn't even notice, although with the Iditarod I wasn't online much this weekend.

          Working good for me. I had lots of trouble getting on for the last week or so. It would just freeze up. No problems now

          Thanks Mike!

                A little Trouble

                Today I seem to be having a little trouble opening posts. They will open but it is way slower than it was. Had been working great. I'm on a fast system so don't know if it is the site or my computer.

                      Vince,

                      We just quadrupled the size of our servers to 2TB on Monday and are now running at about .5% of our available bandwidth. Disregard if you are not seeing any difference.

                        Related to the switch?

                        I just posted on the powerboat thread and my post wasn't there. I posted another one and then both were there, so I deleted one and now I don't see either of the 2.
                        I posted a loooong thread on my winter moose hunt and it never came up, but it was late so I went to bed thinking I had screwed something up. I am awake now and wonder where my post under "Homer Derby" went to. Not to mention my moose hunting story.

                        I am logging right on, fast page loads, so no other issues. Any ideas?

                          Now I see my post under powerboating, but not the one I just posted here. Maybe there is now a delay mechanism for posts?
                          There is a real chance I hit the wrong button for my moose story.

                            I am somewhat unique do to the foreign sat internet thing, but If I go to www.forums.outdoorsdirectory.com I get to the old site w/ the upgrade message. If I go to http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com I get the correct new site. very weird. I also noticed that I have issues with the redirect after making a post.
                            when it goes to redirect me back to the thread it designates the link incorrectly like this:
                            http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...d.php?p=450923#post450923

                            The "#post450923" should not be there. It may be my connection though. on all other counts though it is running MUCH better!

                              I have posted a few threads now that I cannot find. On the fishing site I asked about the Homer Derby. It never showed on that page, but later scrolling I saw that Homerdave had answered me. I clicked on the fishing forum link and it wasn't there. I went back to the index page and it is there, so I clicked on HDs answer and it came up.
                              Same with my prior posts here. It didn't show on the Forum Tips page, but clicking on "go to final post" link brought this page up, and a few seconds later it reloaded with my 2 prior posts.
                              I'm going outside now to stand on the boat and dream of big Kings.
