Ok, let’s try this again…….Remember I told you we where moving? Well, today the payment through and my domain activated. The blog now has a new Vista related theme! The only problem is, the domain name is long. The domain name is but don’t worry! When Microsoft opens Monday, I will get transferred over from Office Live to my new host, so it will be Also when we get a new name, I will see about getting a new domain for it as well. [Note: you HAVE to put www in front of the domain until the DNS propagates fully!!] [If the site is not working, it’s out of my hands. I am also having problems accessing the site some times. Give it a day to spread the DNS around]

Sorry for the lack of updates!

Posted by gamerzworld on August 11, 2006

I’m sorry for not updating the blog! Its just kinda hard to update right now. I just recovered from a virus. Before that my Internet has been going out and my power has been going out. I got my Internet fixed but the power is still acting up a little bit. Plus I’m remodeling my house and stuff like that. I will be updating the blog more often soon. Please forgive me!

Has the blog been going really slow? Well WordPress is working on Mirror in Dallas,TX and that will speed up WordPress witch makes the blog faster! Here is there latest blog entree….

"We’re Working On It! — Matt

Hey guys, I just wanted to apologize for the slowdown and system errors the past week or so. I'm on constantly and the problems have been incredibly annoying.

We've been quiet for a few weeks because all development effort has been heads down on preparing for this new transition, think of it like 1.1.

We're creating a perfect mirror of our entire infrastructure in a new datacenter in Dallas to replicate what we currently have going in San Diego. Basically what we're going for is redundancy at a very high level. The problem is no matter how much money you spend on hardware, switches, and all the hundreds of other things that keep everything running you can really only be certain of one thing — that it'll fail at some point, most likely when you least expect it.

We had originally planned for this new hardware to come online more than a month ago, which would have prevented the errors we've all been experiencing, but it has taken longer than expected. This is my fault and I'm sorry for not getting things moving sooner.

By creating this first mirror in Dallas, we're trying to eliminate as many things that could fail as possible, so in theory if California fell into the ocean we could still keep the site running without any problems and slowdowns. (Besides the fact that Barry, Ryan, Toni, and I are in California! But even we're geographically distributed — Andy, Podz, and Donncha would be okay.)

We're in the very final stages of bringing the new systems online, just waiting the last few bits of configuration to come online. As we're more than doubling the servers we're using, it should address all performance issues and help us prevent any for a long time to come. This means we can get back to doing things we love, like adding cool new features and themes for you. Thanks for your patience, we'll have things back to normal as soon as possible."
