    Default Server Upgrade!

    First of all; sorry for all the recent server crashes and resulting downtime. It turns out Talk Classical simply have become too successful which caused the server to crash again and again during "rush hour". But today the server has been upgraded, now with 8GB RAM instead of 4. Also the new RAM is faster. Hopefully that will solve the problems for now, and allow TC to keep growing. Also, it should make the site a little faster overall.

    Thank you for your patience during this recent technical crisis.

    Best regards,
    Frederik

    PS: There may be a little more downtime today, but it should be no more than a few minutes at most.

    It will be a long term solution only if TC doesn't keep growing. Shame to find we're victims of our own popularity. Thanks again to Mr Magle for all his efforts.
    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.

    You are of course right, this RAM upgrade will hopefully be outgrown by the forum in the not too distant future! But I do hope it will allow TC to grow a lot before that happens.

    And you are, again, welcome

    If the server is running a 32 bit operating system, anything over 4GB won't be used.

    It also won't be able to accommodate for more than 4,294,967,295 members with unsigned 32 bit integers!! Oh no's...

    That's only about half of the world's population. I opt for bigger.
