IF YOU ARE READING THIS MESSAGE ON CRYPTOGRAMS.ORG IT MEANS YOU ARE ON THE NEW SERVER.

Server migration is completed, and DNS has been changed - it will take between 1 and 24 hours for everyone to eventually be routed to the new server. If you're reading this message via the web site forums (via email doesn't count), you're on the new server and should be ready to resume competitive play.

As this is an entirely new server in a new environment, unexpected bugs are possible - if you run into anything strange on the NEW server please contact me right away.

Thanks again for your patience and I hope this will keep things running smoothly for a long time to come.

Stephen

I'd like to hear from folks who are definitely on the new server to see if you are noticing any improvement in performance. So far I am unable to replicate the page load problem on the new server, but I want to make sure we have squashed the problem for good.

Smile Hi

Well in IE8 its faster. Much faster. The chat box has entries from a day or so in it but thats expected?

I found in Firefox it was slow to load. But that could just be because I reloaded the page and didnt restart the browser.

I will check again in FF and in chrome too.

Looks ok so far.

Firefox is not recognizing my games played or allowing me to post in chat.
Not sure why.

IE8 and chrome seem ok so far Stephen.

Had to reboot Firefox, but its allowing me to post in chat and play.
Seems ok.

I can tell you its zooming in IE8. Pages are fast. Checking games, moving to chat.
My solve time is awful but there are alot of quotes I have not seen before.

Its working very well Admin. Great Job and many many thanks.

Default Safari works

On my first puzzle, beat one of my own times. Looking good on this end.

Thank you!

It's much faster today, Stephen, even on this library computer.

Exclamation Slow

Problems ...

Page load is slow. Chat page is not loading.

I have had three puzzles that will not be checked, it just sits there.

I have to reload them.

Is there something going on? Can you check. Other players are noticing
a page load and slow down as well.

Thanks.

The data center we moved to earlier this week was down for about 90 minutes this morning, and it seems there may still be some latency issues remaining. I've put in a ticket to check on what's going on.

I'm hoping things are resolved at this point, network-wise. Also hoping this is just a random bit of bad luck and not a sign that our new data center is problematic. :-/

I've also done some work this evening to analyze and streamline our database a bit more, so with any luck that should kick in some speed improvements as well.

It's a constant battle. :-)

Thank you for staying on top of things. It's been a frustrating few days for all of us. I hope that is the end of the problems with the slowness and the multiple loads on the site.
