The hardware upgrade today went well. Brian and I spent all weekend in the datacenter installing new machines for the database and web servers. We finished with 10 minutes to spare before I had to leave for the airport. Pages should load faster and we are less likely to get bogged down when Google and Ask Jeeves spider the site. Downtime was kept to a minimum. We were down for less than a half hour today when we switched to the faster database and less than a few minutes yesterday when we installed a new switch. MobyGames is about to go on it's fourth year and we are averaging a major hardware upgrade every twelve months. Believe it or not we hope this trend continues.
