Speed fixes are up

Posted by docbyron on Jun 30th, 2015

Hi again,

I've added a number of optimizations to stabilize things. Sorry about the trouble; it's a bit difficult sometimes to know where inefficiencies lie until a site gets a chance to stretch its legs.

For the moment, I've added a 15 minute cache on stories. So, authors, if you make an update to an existing story, you may notice it takes about 15 minutes for that change to actually appear on the site.

Later this week, I'll update the caching to get rid of that delay, but right now my priority is making sure there are no more issues with network speed.

Thanks for your patience!

Speed/uptime issues

Posted by docbyron on Jun 30th, 2015

Hi all,

I'm aware of the issues with site speed at the moment (plus occasional server downtime). We've gotten a pretty sizable increase in traffic in the last couple days, and there are some obvious growing pains.

I'm about to add a bit more caching to try to mitigate the problem in the short-term (so you might notice that updates to stories take a few minutes to actually show up on the site).

Login/registration issue fixed

Ugh... Sorry about that. I made a quick update the other day in a rush and wound up breaking the login/registration page.

It should be working again.

Scheduled Hardware Upgrade

Posted by docbyron on Jun 18th, 2015

Hey all, just an early warning that our host will be performing some hardware upgrades on June 24th. Not sure about what time, but the upgrade should last about 10 minutes. The site will likely be unavailable during this time, and there is a small chance it could take longer if there are any complications.

Apologies for the outage. There was a configuration issue with our host that has now been repaired and shouldn't pop up again.
