New Host Coming Soon
« on: September 28, 2008, 11:27:46 AM »
I've been insanely busy these past two weeks so I wasn't fully aware just how crappy this host has become.  I've had issues with slow performance and being completely disconnected at least 10 times in just the last day.  So I started this new thread since the other one went slightly off-topic and isn't really applicable any more.

Here is where we are at:

- Our new host has been chosen, paid for and is already online
- We've been working on test migrations to the new host to find the most effective way to move the site
- Many individuals are working VERY hard on some major site upgrades and much needed overhauls in certain aspects
- A major announcement will be coming towards the end of the Six Flags season

Please hang with us and unfortunately continue to put up with this sucky host for about one more month.  IMO, it isn't worth shaking things up and potentially incurring major extended downtime with only a few weeks to go.  Once November hits our traffic tends to take a dive anyway.

-peace :D

Wade...thanks for all you do.

It is greatly appreciated.

Quite frankly, I am more worried about the future of Six Flags and Great Adventure in particular right now.  It's amazing how badly the company is currently perceived on the market...and how low the stock is, and how sucky the credit markets are.

That all being said, thanks again!

GADVwow, fan of great adventures

Good news everybody.  I successfully migrated the entire site to the new host today and it is freakin fast!  Nearly instant response time.

We've got some more work to do with some upgrades, updates and testing but it's coming soon :).

And the way the thing is flying, for the first time in ages, this morning...is it done now?  Wow.  Just wow.  Otherwise, an amazing co-ink-a-dink.

Actually, the performance increase you guys are seeing is only because I sent yet another ripping email to our host Ipower to once again complain about poor performance.  So its only good again for a few days and then it will start to tank again and need another reset.

There will be a major annoucement regarding the site along with many improvements coming when we do this migration to the new host towards the end of the season.

We are back to the what had become normal, very slow response times again.  At this hour on a Sunday morning (6:22am).  I guess those emails don't last long! :)

Canada is overrated. Hope you're not looking for Mountain Dew. ;)
