Adding a webserver

Hi all,

Dreamwidth is seeing some extra traffic today, so we're rolling out a new webserver to handle the extra load. We'll be paying close attention to the system load though and will be doing what we can to make sure everything is speedy and working.

Also, today I am joined by my infant son Oliver, who is helping me with the servers. Hello from Mark and Oliver!

I think these are the new LJ "improvements" making people look for a different blogging platform: http://lj-releases.livejournal.com/71858.html
6,190 comments so far..

[personal profile] teal_deer 2011-12-21 09:42 pm (UTC)(link)
^ This. Particularly, the RP communities -- a HUGE part of LJ -- are all trying to move over here, since the new changes actually make it impossible to do some stuff.

D'awwwwww :) You keep those servers running, Oliver ♥

*casually keeps a tab open on the Dreamwidth Stats page* (I know it won't update for another ~fourteen hours, but sometimes the anticipation is half the fun.)

Just to let you know (and I'm replying to everybody in the comments here who's made similar comments, so please please don't think it's personal!) -- we're asking that people not make negative comments about LJ in the comments to our official communities, since we just don't think it's right to be encouraging that in our official spaces, especially since we literally could not exist without LJ having existed first and many people already have a negative impression of evangelism by people who support DW. I know emotions are running high and everybody's feeling very stirred up right now, and we don't want to make things worse in our official spaces!

Thanks :)

Snark about Oliver being a more competent sysadmin than some subsumed by OMGSOCUTE squeeful type sounds.
