    Hi all - I've just switched over AAC to a new server. It's in the same facility as the previous server (hivelocity), but a lot more powerful. Hopefully this will prevent any whitepage/slow-down issues in the future.

    If you notice any bugs, please let me know in this thread so that I can troubleshoot.

    Thanks!

    Rob

    There was a red alert at the top of the page:

    Alert: The forums are currently turned off!

    I assumed this was what you were up to.

    Hope all goes well.

    Thanks, Rob. Much appreciated.

    I don't know if it is my imagination but the site response time appears to be a lot faster. My screen refreshes almost instantly.
    Nice.:)

    I hope so! The new server has 72GB of RAM, which can quite easily cache the entire forum database.

    Hello,

    For the ones that have not noticed yet.
    jrap gave the eBook pages a new layout.
    This will also be better to view on mobile devices.

    didn't notice the speed change, probably because i've not been here long enough.

    do have one down side, the forums are quite addictive :)
