Yesterday, you may have experienced some downtime — we have finally upgraded our server. Sparkling, brand new, and (hopefully) much faster. Initial monitoring seems to be promising — the page loads are quicker and database performance also seems much improved.
Of course, there are likely to be issues related to the move — a few of you have already pointed out some. Over the next week, we’re also upgrading all our backend software to the newest versions. Please send us an email if you detect anything that seems wrong, or encounter any error messages. The chances are we’ll already be aware, but the more eyes watching for fire, the better.
A huge thank you to all our Criticker Sponsors — without your support, we wouldn’t be able to afford these sorts of upgrades. If you haven’t considered signing up for sponsorship, please do so. As always, our site operates without any outside funding or third-party intervention … and Criticker users are apparently too savvy to click on ads! The no-ads version of the site, available for $4.99 a month, is a great way to support us.
