The underlying database has been upgraded to a newer and reportedly much faster MySQL version. Unfortunately, due to some technical limitations of the operating system, it took longer than expected, (about half an hour, compared to the 5 minutes it should have been!) but its now back online and should stand a lot more load in the future. It seems a bit snappier now, but maybe I’m imagining it 🙂
If you get any weird errors, I’m on vacation and Matt’s dealing with everything…
Heheh. No, really, any weird errors, please mail the regular firstname.lastname@example.org address.
