Welcome to the new RFF Servers!!

12/13/2011

We are finally up on the new RFF servers and hosting service. We transferred from one server with RAID backup to 4 servers with a load balancer. In the future if a server goes down, it should be replaced within an hour -- not EIGHT f'n days like the old hosting service!

Over 95,000 threads, a million and a half posts, 288,000 gallery images, and 53,000 attachments were transferred to the new servers.

Did you notice the random gallery is back on the home page?

That is only one of the many updates which we are able to contemplate now.

Through the terrible hosting situation over Thanksgiving and the migration to the new servers, I want to thank Jorge Torralba, RFF's founder and tech guy, for all his hard work! Many Thanks!

Stephen

As William Bell (and the Byrds) sang: You don't miss your water till your well runs dry.

Hope those who worked so hard to solve the problems can relax over the holidays.

@Cameraquest/Stephen... thanks for your own commitment to making RFF a better experience. Thanks to all the backroom operations people who executed it. It seemed "dark days" when things were down but I knew ... eventually.

Congrats!
