Wow, that was harder then expected: first the switch took forever and the site was unavailable overnight, then we had a bug crop up and entries were not being uploaded properly, but after working feverishly all day we finally have everything working as it should (at least I think we do…).
Thank you so much to everyone who put up with the problems and was more then gracious with us, you were great!
The server we are now on has four times as much RAM, way more bandwidth and a way faster processor then the previous one, so hopefully we will see some increased performance in the way the site runs.
All contests that had been running for more then 48 hours were extended by 48 hours, and all others were reset to 10 days.
If anyone has any problems or questions please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I’m off to bed now…
