    Another server switch

    As announced on Twitter I switched servers again as the timeouts started annoying me. Previously I was managing the server on my own, doing backups and everything myself. I am good at managing a webserver, however not that skilled. Some script problems kept slowing the site, making it impossible to access.

    I used a Cloud-server to host our site and now switched to a managed solution by Rackspace. It's a cloud-solution as well, allowing us to stay here forever, scaling D3scene to whatever we need :-). Furthermore they have the software installed required by vBulletin to work flawlessly. As they manage the server they overtake security and everything else that's important.

    Do you notice any Speed-difference?

    You suck. Suck a little less and become a fan on Facebook.

    i have not noticed any change in speed, but its nice that you have switched to a managed solution. And the cloud-pool solution seems really interesting.
    If we ever get ddosed or something like that, will the tech team take care of it?

    Hey Hendric. Welcome back from your vacations and thank you for managing this here that good.
    Speed Change ? - No. I haven't noticed it yet o_O But perhaps it'll work in some hours better
    Thank you for spending that much money for D3 <3'
