Andrus, you, the mods and administrators do an awesome job here, so the fact that the new server makes your job easier is a GOOD THING. I noticed Sunday night that avatars were still on, so I figured the server had passed its first big test with flying colors! Great job getting this package up and running!First of all... the 1365 simultaneous users is an all-time high. Secondly, we would have crushed the old server once it got over 700 or so. This server didn't even blink.
Now I can leave to go to games and not worry about turning a bunch of features off so that the board doesn't crash under the pressure. I can run maintenance without having to wait until 4am when traffic is low. Heck, I reindexed the entire SR archived site yesterday ( a busy day here traffic wise) which is server intensive and the effect on performance was nominal.
Less headaches is a good thing, and this new server package is definitely worth it.
