Well... now that our season bit of silliness is behind us, I think we've learned something... next year, the moderators and admin have to come up
with a new ruse that isn't as transparent as this one. Well, at least we have a whole year.
In the mean time, I have an exciting announcement that will effect everyone.
ATS 2.0 is in the works!
For the past month, Bob88, Simon, and myself have been tossing around ideas on how to improve ATS. Well, the biggest and most important idea is
happening right now, an upgrade to a much improved infrastructure.
If all goes well, AboveTopSecret.com will be moved to a dedicated server before the end of the month. For those who care about details, the new
machine is; Pentium 4 2GHz, 1 Gig RAM, 7200 RPM hard drive, RedHat 7.3, the new host's network features 4 OC3 backbones and emergency generators.
This is a serious new machine, on a serious new network that will be able to support the growth of ATS.
To put it more simply, the bandwidth and performance issues will very soon be a thing of the past!
Now... as happens with all things of this nature, there will be speed bumps. So as we transition to the new server and chase the bugs out of any new
software, we hope you'll be patient as we work things out.
As Simon, Bob88, and myself complete important steps in the conversion process, we'll keep you updated.
