The hosting company has moved the site to a new server last night at about 10pm. That is nice, however they didn’t bother to inform us that it was happening. Of course it was 0400 their time. I noticed it because I was working on a few bugs like the archive page at the time. Some of our writers noticed and txt’ed or e-mailed me because they were writing posts. It took just under two hours.
Anyway this should alleviate some of the outages that we have had over the last few weeks as our traffic has been attempting to surpass the election week peak.
