If you are reading this post that means you made it onto our new server! There probably will be a few bugs or issues, so if you see something that wasn't happening earlier today or something seems broken please let me know in this post.

Thanks everyone for your patience during this move!

So far its a seamless transition on my end, but I know you must have put lots of work into the process to make it happen like this. Thanks!

Yay hi Eddie, thanks for letting me know you're here safe and sound! We have several users that have made it over within a few minutes of the switch and plenty who are still on the old server yet. It's going to take several hours to get the majority of users on here, hopefully by this time tomorrow the old server will be completely click free on

Made it here without any delay!   Thanks Robert for all your hard work to keep the site running smoothly (very smoothly!)    This is one of my favorite sites and I visit it almost daily.    I love the content! Rocks!  :)

Took a few extra seconds to load, but all is fine here.


If anything the site seems "snappier". it seems page loads are quicker.

Working in Canada! Thanks Robert for all the hard work and planning that makes a seamless migration like this possible. I can vaguely still remember doing system cutovers - this migration was a dream - thank you again!!

Yay, thanks everyone so far so good. I'm glad this new server seems slightly faster to most users, I agree page loads do seem faster to me as well! We will see if this speed increase keeps up after I move Vacuumland onto the server tonight or tomorrow, hopefully it will!

That sure would suck if those other guys vacuumed up all of the bandwidth!

Hi Robert
The performance increase is quite noticeable. Great work. Having moved systems around myself as a data base administrator I know that it is not the easiest thing in the world.

Yay, thanks Ben! I do see an overall speed increase as well. By the way everyone Vacuumland has now been live on the new server for about five hours as well and I don't see any speed decreases so far. Yay x 2

Fingers crossed!

I would’ve been none the wiser that the change actually happened had this post not been made. (In other words it seems to have gone very smoothly)

Everything is loading much faster. Todays POD of 5/26 did not come up this morning. It was just a little x box in the upper left hand corner.

5/26: Picture of The Day is not appearing. Checked Patent of The Day, which I rarely do, and it required a second click to get to the patent, but it worked. Unsure if this is an anomaly or if it has something to do with transferring to the new server.

Edit: Apologies to retro-man. Your post about the POD had yet to appear when I started mine.

Yes this new sever seems much faster in loading which I'm loving.
