    Site slow - Server having meltdown?

    Well, over at XDTalk.com the server is being replaced again after less than a year due to massive influx of new registered users.

    I noticed that last two or three days the site here is acting weird and slow. Is it also server overload?

    Possibly. I am noticing problems everywhere today.

    I guess the intrawebz is overloaded due to the MLK day and the Immaculation tomorrow

    I haven't noticed it being slow except for about 5 minutes a day when something is going on. I have an email in to the host to see if they can figure it out and correct it....

    I would guess that the mass throughput of emails that occurs each night at midnight might slow us up a bit, but haven't noticed anything else.

    One day last week at around 5 pm I noticed a considerable slow down, but I presumed that was due to everyone checking their favorite website before heading home for the day. So I just turned the computer off for the day.

    The next morning it worked just as great as it always has

    XDTalk will be fixed by next month. They raised over $2500 in under 36 hours from donations/membership donations to buy a brand spanking new bad azz server.

    The host has made some changes that seem to have relieved the periodic slowdowns from what I have seen so far. I will continue to check the stats, but all seems to be working well....
