Looks like we had an unexpected busy hour (busiest yet to date!)...just like in the pub or supermarket when all checkouts are full. We'll look at expanding limit to connections to avoid what appeared to be a bottleneck.

Did the new Duracells I sent you fit then Ben?

Anyway, what do you call the servers?
We used to have a couple of servers at work called Snowball and Squealer.
IT guys - crazy, but lovable!

We never had guests measured on V3 in the recording data. If anyone remembers we had a measure for members online at the bottom of the forums...the most it ever went up to was about 245-250. That was for a duration of 30mins. We now measure a 15mins duration which would bring the numbers down and we had around 300 members on at 9:15. So it's up.

The new site records lots more stats for people and until we get numbers like now we cannot see what affect all the extra recording's doing. It only seems to really struggle at around 9:00pm.

When I worked for Lotus the servers were named after greek gods - apparently Aphrodite went down a lot....


...now that wasn't in the book of Greek myths I read at school!

I couldn't possibly repeat what I've been calling them for the last few weeks.
