Server Upgrade Time! Updated! Today is the day!

General NewsYou've probably all noticed that the site has been running pretty slowly lately. When I upgraded the server a year and a half ago I thought it'd be good enough to support the number of users the site was seeing, but that number jumped quite a bit higher than expected. I've gone ahead and ordered (for the first time ever) all new hardware for the server. No more hand-me-downs from my outgoing desktop/game machine -- this new hardware will be more powerful than my PC. However, I will have to take the site offline, make a complete backup, and transfer the data to the new disk which will result in a couple hours of downtime later this week. I'll post more information once the hardware is here and tested.

Update 7/8/09 -- The new hardware has arrived! It's up and running now and I'm making preparations to load the server image onto it. I plan to perform the cutover on Friday, around noon. The site and all relays will be completely offline during this time. Sorry for the inconvenience, but the new server will be 2-3 times faster than the old one and also has 4 times the RAM so the database should haul when it's all done. Thanks!

Update 7/10/09 -- Today is the day! The site and all the streams will be going down in a few hours for upgrade. It will take several hours to complete. Thanks!

Update 7/10/09 #2 -- The backup of the music archive is taking a lot longer than I expected so the site will probably remain up till later in the afternoon. I don't expect this part to be finished before 2pm EST (GMT-5) so I'll leave the music playing until it's done. Thanks!

Update 7/10/09 #3 - The new server is online!!! I'm still applying patches to the new OS, so it'll have to be rebooted two more times over the course of the next few days, but I wanted to get things back up ASAP to make sure everything's working. Please report any unusual behavior if you see anything. Thanks!

AD is an undertaking of something you don't have to do but yet you do it anyways. It means a lot that you're willing to go out of your way like this to provide upgrades for the benefit of the listeners.

Thank you!!! ^_^

Armitage - Thanks for all you do to provide all us with (IMHO) the best in anime/jpop music on the internet.
