The past couple of weeks have been very busy for us, as we have worked on some major behind-the-scenes changes. The first major change was with our colocation provider, where we run our servers. Coupled with short notice, we also fit in a different configuration for our servers. Preceding the change in colocation providers, we have also been working on replacing the underlying database. Both changes are done now.
There were a few rough edges with the transitions. Ironically, the more successful we were with these changes, the less that people would notice. In the long-term, we hope that both changes will benefit our service. We're particularly hopeful that the database change will help streamline future development.
