Occasional error pages/slowness.

Hey all,

Most of you have probably been seeing that nasty error page every once in a while during peak hours these last few days... Well, we see them too, and are working on getting rid of them again :)

Our primary database server is starting to get overloaded again, and we can't really upgrade that machine anymore. We have two servers ready to take on a lot of the DB traffic, but they're not completely set up yet. This should happen sometime soon.

Other than that, we have been doing very well. It's been 31 million hits since our last downtime (9.5 days, bleh.) The new load balancer is getting configured, and lots is getting done just about everywhere.

Off I go...

[Update: OK, maybe I wasn't so clear... The reason why we can't upgrade the main DB server anymore is because no more hardware will fit inside it. It's fully loaded.
We are not (as far as I know) in any financial troubles right now, but buying a paid account allways makes me happy. ;)]
