Thanks to everyone for making this club a great place to be.

Thanks to everyone that donated. We're live on our new hardware. How's she feel?

Think the new servers are faster? I think so too. See the attached picture which shows the -huge- decrease in latency between old and new.

Note that the spike represents the few minutes when the forum went down during the switch.

:welder: When will the Tech section come back up? :welder:
I worked with Paul Yelk on that a few weeks ago, however, lately I've had to ignore efforts around that due to lack of free time.

Paul has been working on bringing the FAQ up to date. There are a few things I need to provide him with on the server before we can go live with it. But it will be back "soon."

There were a variety of problems with the old machines. The speed wasn't much of an issue except at peak times. The added oomph we have now is frosting on the cake as far as I'm concerned. But for kicks, see how fast search is :)

There were many outages, some lasting 45 minutes to an hour. There were also frequent times where it was taking between 2 and 10 seconds to serve up pages. Not saying that there will never be outages with the new provider (InReach Internet in Oakland), but I have noticed quite a speed difference!

I think it's great that we could get everyone to come together and donate a few bucks to buy some nice hardware. In case you guys didn't know, there's no more depending on third parties to manage our hardware or anything else. The hardware and everything running on it is now owned and maintainted by TTORA.

Later,
....Mike

Been working behind the scenes to get the pages reformatted and redesigned.
Also, we are moving the former separate TTORA Tech Archive articles (the 'How To' articles) back into the FAQ.
This is going to take some time as the new FAQ is approaching over 150 pages!!!
If there's anything you are specifically looking gfor, let me know and I may be able to e-mail you the 'raw' page; at least you can get the information, but without all the graphics!

Oh, and thanks for the suggested links!
