Over the past few weeks HYA has been struggling a bit to keep up with the pace and to perform to a standard I’m happen with. There were regular outages and the site was regularly at capacity, so what did I do? Stepped up and switched HYA over to a dedicated server which should hopefully make such issues a thing of the past, at least until HYA hits the next level when it comes to popularity and traffic.
From what I can tell everything has transitioned over quite nicely (the moving process is handled almost entirely by Dreamhost, it’s quite brilliant actually), but like the picture that I took in NYC says, if you see something, say something, because it would be practically impossible for me to check everything and test different configurations, so please leave a comment on this post or tweet me.
There will be no new posts on HYA over the weekend for two reasons. One, I’m going to be tweaking the setup of HYA to get things running as fast as possible and since I’m not an expert in these things it will likely take so long that I won’t find the time to write anything. Two, it looks like it’s going to be a beautiful weekend weather-wise, so I’m going to leave the office and get some fresh air.
Quick reminders about connecting with HYA. I’m on Twitter, here’s the Facebook page (which is updated less than once a day usually, I’m no spammer), here’s the RSS feed, and if you want to submit a post (of your brand, or perhaps a picture of you in your HYA gear from the HYA store) you can do that here. Have a great weekend everyone!
