Friday, August 24, 2007 Server Upgrade Phase 1

The first phase of the server upgrade is complete. You'll notice that page load times are much quicker with the exception of the "My Progress" and "Record Offline Progress" pages. There's really no way around those two considering the sheer bulk of data they generate and transfer. It still takes 1-3 seconds to load either one of those pages even with the best broadband connection. That said, other load times such as the "Recent Notes" page and even the Bible text pages are anywhere from 4-6x faster. Any page that causes email to be sent is now 9x faster or more.

In addition to better performance, you'll notice some new features that have appeared. I'll let those be a mystery for the time being, and post a blog about those (with screenshots) later.
