Moving servers
 
I just put in an order to rent server space on another server. This server is just too damn slow, as I'm sure you've all noticed.

I apologize for the inconvience it may have caused any of you.

The migration will happen this week/weekend. It will all happen behind the scenes, so don't worry about any down time.

At the most the site will be down for an hour late some night, so most of you won't notice it (except for the night owls, you know who you are).

Faster load times will yield us better results with Google, and will also make visiting here less annoying :)

THanks for all of your participation and continued support of better fuel economy.

I can't live without gassavers! But seriously, congrats on the server migration -- this means that site activity has increased, right?

I've started removing a few things from the regular layout to help speed things up. You'll notice the post count and gaslog entries are gone for a little while.

I might be playing detective a bit before going live to determine exactly what is causing the speed problem. I am going to try to remove as much stuff as possible to clear up memory and whatnot on the new server.

I'm certain the culprit is something simple. Hopefully it is just the server and nothing more.

initial test of new server
 
initial test of new server is very good.

YOu can look yourself here: https://208.131.131.49/

I need to iron out a few bugs, but I hope to make the switch tonight.

Please refrain from posting on the mirror site until it's up and running. When i switch over I will backup all of the info on this site and move it over.

Woah.
 
Wow Matt that new server is sick!!! Talk about instant gratification! I did not think the speedup would be this great. I'm impressed. average 6 second cut off page load time now.
You did a helluva job locating a faster server.
*claps* & much thanks and appreciation!

wow - quite impressive speed on the new site. not to be a sourpuss, but hopefully it's not just because the test site isn't under any load yet.

I hope you're right, but considering how much load this site is under it shouldn't be a problem. I have a friend who uses tektonic (what this site is currently on) and has a lot of the same problems. He has over 1000 members and much more activity and has no problems on his new server.

I've also reduced the running programs a lot on the new server, only leaving what we really need.

Server moved. Please be patient as the new location is propogated throughout the internet.

Please report any problems you have to me.

It looks like gassavers email is going to be down for a little bit, so please contact me via PMs with any problems.

Expect a few bugs for the next while.

Man, I was totally lost
 
When the site was down tonight, I didn't know what to do. I ended up making a Fantasy Baseball team and played Flight Simulator. What else was there to do, watch TV? I think SVOboy sez it best: "Meh".

I can see it now: Timion/Jones '08 (when you choose your cabinet, I call dibs on Director of Transportation ;-) ) And BTW, great speed improvement and seamless transition.

I'm shocked myself how fast it's going now.

I also made a few modifications with the new server:
  • upgraded to PHP5
  • upgraded to a newer version of MySQL
  • installed a program that caches commonly viewed pages (this is way cool)

Soon I'll be making a few more and my plan for world domination will be complete!

I think this upgrade is honestly going to save me an hour a day.

Nope. It's still really fast for me. I'll see if anything is out of the ordinary.

Its OK now. Awhile ago it would take like 45sec to go from page to page. Maybe a problem on my end.

Eh, could be anything. I've learned one thing lately, and that is that the internet is never stable.

EVER.

Hi...

I was just browsing around, and I was looking through the following thread:
Intake air flow modification ( Go to page: 1 2 )

I read the whole first page, and the second one comes up with all the replied names, and the signatures, etc but no actual replies. It's just blank. I did reload, and try accessing that thread in different ways with no success. I don't think it's the system here, but I dunno. I also haven't checked any other threads yet.

NOTE: Okay, I just went to "preview" my post and it did the same...it's blank. I don't get it
