IMPORTANT:

We are still experiencing some packet loss leading to pages hanging.. if you experience this please let us know, and we hope to have it fixed. ? seems like a network problem of some sort.

Also, there are things we may need to tweak over the next 24-48 hours, so buckle up!




Issues fixed:
  • The server time was also a bit messed up but should be fixed now.
  • Switched to UTF8 encoding; might fix some odd characters in older posts
  • Attempt to fix UTF-8 problem with ? appearing with double spaces

and now its f*cked again..

stay tuned it looks like it's not a server issue it's a packet loss problem somewhere on the softlayer network.

Ah, and here I was thinking it was me having the occasional loading issues that only a F5 could fix. (I just upgraded to Opera 11 as well, so I thought it might have been that one.)

In case people didn't notice, we also now have a proper validated SSL Certificate, thanks to the awesome StartSSL.com, so you should be able to surf dc with https better than ever before.
