welcome to spectre, our new E2 web server. It's a dual PIII 733mhz with a gig of RAM -- compared to our old server, sebastian, which was a dual PII 266. In addition, spectre firewalls our new database server, its identical twin, named hillgiant.

Thanks for making it through all those VA Linux banner ads, guys. (And thanks to VA Linux!) The speed should make it worth it.

A note on speed improvements: since the database info is going through a switched fast ethernet, those of you on T1s may actually recieve slightly slower pages than you were used to during off-peak hours. However, we should be able to handle much more traffic on-peak -- and avoid those nasty 15+ second pageload times.

msg nate if you are experiencing (more than the normal amount of) inconsistencies and errors. But please be patient, we hope to work the kinks out ASAP.

PS You will probably have to Login again until the DNS servers are updated.
