Unscheduled Downtime

I think that’s a euphemism for “Oh shit!”. Anyway, the good news is that we are now on a virtual private server with 4GB of RAM assigned to us and only us… before we were on a (very) shared server running near max load and killing processes left and right because of a 90MB RAM limit. This means that this lovely site that you guys have paid for should serve fast as tits from now on, and we shouldn’t (haha! there’s that word again!) have to make any more infrastructure changes. Oops, I take that back, at some point we will have to move our database to a VPS server as well, but not soon.

The bad news is the site was down for about an hour for many of you while DNS changed over and various caches got flushed. Obviously if you’re reading this message, that’s been fixed. Bully!
