Performance Issues Equals Downtime

permalink   Sat, Dec 9, 2006 @ 4:28 PM
I prefer to call it an embarrassment of riches (5,000 registered users plus +5,000 uploads) but really our site was not designed to handle to load we’ve seen in the last few months.

We were down for a few hours this morning because the weekend traffic combined with Google and other search engines coming through overwhelmed our system. This has become a chronic problem and has become my #1 priority to fix supplanting all other feature work that was scheduled. This involves big scary changes so watch for a call for beta testers of the new site code when we’re ready to go public.

In the meantime, we’re sorry for the hassle and hopefully when this is all over we can get back to remixing and sharing care free ;)
