FIXED: Site Might Be Slow

Just a heads up that the site may be slow for the next couple of hours. Discourse pushed out a giant update that I applied this morning. The site needs to reindex most of the content now and it is using up most of the processing power on the server to do that. It should give user activities priority, but that only works if it can jump in between processes.

Please let me know if you notice anything weird.

Pushing that hamster on the wheel.

Everything looks to be cleared out. Should be good to go! :slight_smile:

OK, nooooooow it should be good. We ran out of space on the drive, but I freed up some space.

Trying to move some more stuff over to our long term storage service. You might see some weirdness :slight_smile:

OK, so I broke the site and then I unbroke it after freaking out that I broke it.

Things should work as normal now. You might notice images load slowly on some old posts. They’re getting delivered by a new content delivery network to make them load faster, but they need to be loaded once to get them into the cache. After that they should be lightning quick.

yup yesterday night it was down but looks fine tonight!
