    Forum server upgrade on Friday afternoon - now completed

    We will be moving the forum to a new server on Friday afternoon. During the upgrade the site will either be closed or inaccessible for a few hours. I will try to keep the down time to a minimum.

    The number of people using the site has been growing at a dramatic rate ever since it was founded. The current server has been in use since 2008, and given how rapidly we have grown I am surprised it has lasted as long as it has. The new server is substantially more powerful and should be able to handle the increased traffic anticipated over the next several years.

    We remain committed to being a 100% free resource for pool owners. As we make upgrades and improvements, the cost of running the site continues to increase. We depend on membership contributions to keep the site running. If you haven't already, please consider supporting TFP by becoming a lifetime or platinum member.

    Just a quick reminder, the site will be down for a couple of hours tomorrow in the afternoon.

    It had better

    The old server was running at about 80% of capacity during the last week, and would have failed in about two weeks as traffic continues to grow. The new server is a dramatically more powerful machine designed to last us for many years. Not everyone who would normally be online has discovered the new machine just yet, so I'm not sure just how meaningful this is, but currently we are running at about 3% of capacity on the new server.

    I didn't get the can not search forum at this time when I hit the my posts link. It usually says that 50% of the time...or I guess I should say it used to!

    Re: Forum server upgrade on Friday afternoon - now completed

    I have told Jason this privately but want to say it in public.

    Have y'all noticed how there are seldom, if ever, any technical issues on this forum? That's all because of the computer skills of Jason and his willingness to use those skills keeping our forum up to speed.

    Jason absorbs the total cost of daily maintenance, licenses, domain registration, as well as this dynamite upgrade (I'm calling my lawyer, the screens are poppin' up so fast it is hurting my eyeballs). In return he benefits directly from the "Lifetime supporter" contributions y'all choose to make.

    So, if you are on the fence or might be considering becoming a lifetime member, now would be a great time. I have no dog in that fight at all other than I am so very appreciative of the technical skills Jason has that keeps us up and running so smoothly.......it allows me to post all the drivel that travels through my mind about all things "poolish"

    I've noticed that when I click on "your posts" it no longer says I need to be signed in although I already am! Already enjoying the upgrade, thank you TFP!!
