New SQL Server

Hey guys, just wanted to give everyone an update on the site status.

We have just completed migrating our SQL databases to a brand new box. The new machine is a 2.5GHz 8 core machine with 12GB of RAM and 6 146GB 10,000 RPM SAS drives in RAID 10. This should dramatically improve the speed of the forums.

One minor issue - during the migration, I lost connectivity to the old database server, requiring a hard reboot, which in turn corrupted a couple of tables. Due to this issue, there are roughly 4 hours worth of posts from this morning missing. If your post disappeared, I apologize.

If anyone finds any other issues, please report them in this topic and I will look into it.

Hmm... My last post is from Today at 10:50:05 - and now it's 22:23, so thats 12 hours minus maintanance time - missing, since I've been spamming the support boards since morning to the maintanence.... ::)

EDIT: But guess this is still good news - I just feel a bit sorry for all the lost support posts...

Bad graphics card, it'd look horrible. All black with little white text... *shudders*

Thanks Derek, for all your hard work on this.

My initial thoughts too - but after a little thought, with the speed the forum runs now, I guess we'll soon catch up ;)

I am on it boss.. :P but after sometime.. If it could get back, i think it would be a great thing. (just to be sure if we arnt getting it back..)

Just reporting in a problem.. (maybe!) I dont see any unread posts even though people are making posts in different sections. Unread replies works fine.
