RiotACT server upgrade underway

By johnboy 20 September 2008 64

For the last few weeks we’ve been the victims of our ever-escalating popularity. Our poor server has been spitting out database error messages as often as not, groaning under the increasing weight of all your visits.

In response to this we’ve now lashed out on a dual quad core (so yes eight cores) beast from HP with redundant doodads up the wazoo and 8Gb of RAM (with room for much more). Back when we started in 2000 a machine like this would have come with a team of men in white coats.

We hope it will see us through to complete media domination in Canberra with a start made into the rest of the world.

It’s currently being brought up to speed and we hope to have it up and running in a week or so.

So just stay patient and it will all be better soon. We promise.

rather the suse geeko.

Teehee. What an apt typo 🙂


no typo – they were calling him geeko a while ago. seeing that he is a chameleon, not a gecko…

And so I stand corrected. What an interesting little bit of geek trivia!


and now i feel sad that I know it. wait to see the fusa (should have been Foosa) release soon. very interesting. bit like platespin….
