The new server appears to be extremely capable and competent.

How is it for you compared to the old one?
Feel about the same?
Faster - Slower?
Overhead request lag?
Any one see any errors?

Seems a bit faster.

Only time the old site was particularly slow for me was when I edited a post I just made - there used to be a few second lag before refreshing to new message - it's just as quick as posting as normal now.

No errors and yes it seems faster. I always liked RackSpace and found their HTTP and FTP access to be extremely fast. Only problem we ever had was when a server (not ours) was hit with a DOS attack and it was making everyone's servers slow as heck (I forget the details). Also, make sure they aren't still blocking Slurp from their datacenter...hehe

Noticeably faster. As mentioned, especially on editing where there used to be a long lag. I assume that was due to the file locks that would have to happen on an edit. I wonder if there's been a kernal update at the same time?

Or maybe you just improved it while typing out that couple of meg of code ;-)

No bugs/config issues found that aren't already on your list.

AH! Now I know why for several days I couldn't get into the forums. I thought I needed to pay something to continue viewing!

I think this is faster.

Definitely faster. Is the load back up to pre-outage levels, or are we benefitting from the slow return of the community?

Quite a bit faster. I noticed that the old server was really bogging down over the past several months.

Till missing the FOO listings from Oct 12 thru 23 inclusive on the new server however.

Are you still retriving data, or has some posts been lost for good.

Also, when you search Google and you get a hit from
webmasterworld, the link points to some differnt content than advertised. Have all your indexed links changed, as this is really going to have a content penalty on google for you.

Considerably faster here in dialup land.

Seemed a lot faster at the very beginning when it first went back up (perhaps due to growing traffic) but now seems similar to before.

I would love it though if the board could register ip addresses for people that are logged in so we do not get a 403 after a bit of time.

Seems faster to me. In fact I normally can't even "followed through" on a click (let up on the button) before the next page has fully loaded. Okay, so that's a little exaggerated. Still, it's fast.

I don't know... seems faster I think. It's always been pretty quick for me.

Seems a bit faster

Most notably faster when you EDIT a post and resubmit which was a dog on the old server

Pages always took a good few seconds to load here for me. Likewise when posting/editing. Now, from where I sit in London, it's zipping along superbly.

Definitely faster...
no question about it...

Very enjoyable from where I sit...(oh that reminds me..I better get up and move around...or they are going to be burying me with my office chair..)

"Most notably faster when you EDIT a post and resubmit which was a dog on the old server"

Yes...this is one area that is much improved...and I am testing it right now...(let's see..where's my stop watch...okay there it is..)

Less then 4 seconds on the edit reload...used to take in the 15 second range...

From Spain seems about the same, I'm on telefonica (:() dial-up.
Was faster, before everyone found out you were live again, LOL....
Seem to be busier now than in the days before.
Are you sure the crash wasn't a publicity stunt, LOL..

Big difference, even on 2mb connection. And after editing a post the long wait has gone. Not that I post much ;-)

Good to see something positive come from your misfortunes.

Seems faster here in Hong Kong
Thank God you had the "opportunity" to change hosting
2 years ago I made comments about the old hosts on WW and had my post removed!
Still not all the bad things come to hurt you eh!
See you in Vegas

Much faster to me....(and umpteen times faster than searchengineworld.com was when it was getting overloaded.)

It seems to be noticably faster than before. Is it just the new server or you did some code/apache tweaking?

It's definitely faster, no doubt about it. I really notice this at slower times, oddly enough, that's when I can see the actual page generation time, it's very fast, almost instant.

During heavy traffic times it's definitely faster, no doubt about it. But still only 32 bit cpus? What's with that?
