Sorry about the weirdness today on the site. I had to fail it over to my disaster recovery setup on the other machine. The motherboard on the main server, zorak, blew a capacitor this morning around 9am. Sort of alarming, since I was working on it at the time and suddenly it stopped responding. Fortunately its colocation was 3 floors below me at the time so I was able to go downstairs and get it switched over to the other server, and later this evening was able to fetch a new board.

The new board has much more RAM and CPU. This means I can start messing with more neat new features too. It definitely means that the daytime slowdowns are a thing of the past. 🙂
