Topic: Big news - New server!
Big news - today I ordered a newer server for The Athenaeum. It will take a few days for basic set up by our hosting company, and then I am planning on about two months of work to carefully set up all software, test things, move data, and eventually remove the old server. So it will be a little while before you see the effect, but eventually we should have a server that is faster, more secure, and less prone to becoming overloaded as our traffic continues to grow.
This also means that the next two months will be a little slower in terms of developing other features on the site. Each additional month I keep two servers costs me about $400 instead of the usual $200. That all comes out of my personal income, so I want to keep it as short as possible!
If you have questions, ask and I'll answer them below.
