Like a child who eventually outgrows their crib, we’ve outgrown our server.
Four years of keeping Winnipeg informed here at ChrisD.ca has resulted in some strain on the back-end of our operations, particularly with a 23% jump in traffic in recent months.
Tonight at 7 p.m., the process of migrating to a newer, more powerful server will begin. We’ve been advised there shouldn’t be any downtime, but in the event there is, it should only be minimal.
The new hardware is promised to provide for a faster user experience, resulting in pages and images loading quicker than you’re used to while visiting us now.
Should we go down momentarily, be sure to follow us on Twitter (@ChrisDca) for any breaking news.
