New Server (Yippee!)

We're pleased to announce that we've completed our move to the new server. The is now hosted on a state of the art PowerEdge 2950 with 8x 2.66Ghz Xeon CPU Cores (2x E5430), 8GB of RAM and 1.2TB of storage in a six-disk RAID. It's a nice step-up from our previous "Prestonia" Xeon dinosaur and should give us the capacity to reach our goal of 10K users by summer.

Also, we switched co-location facilities. We dumped the poorly managed DigiPort Miami (don't go there!) in favor of a swanky new suite at in Boca. It's closer to our offices in Wellington and a truly high-class operation. We'll sleep better at night. :-)

Note: We're still tweaking and tuning the new config, so pardon any intermittent service disruptions. All of your accounts have been moved over and both portal access and tracker upload should work as before. Regardless, we'll do our best to keep the "dust" to a minimum - and as always, thanks for helping to make the a success!
