LST is moving to a new server soon!

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody,

Just wanted to let you know that we have purchased a new dedicated server for LST and plan to migrate the site to it sometime next week.

We're beefing up the hardware considerably, so we should see an end to the periodic dreadful sluggishness that we've been plagued with recently.

Thanks again for your patience with the site performance in the meantime.

(Until we move know that when it does slow down it rarely lasts for more than ten minutes or so.)

Thanks to everyone for helping LST grow so quickly!

Heads up that we're probably moving to the new server tomorrow night. Fingers crossed there will be minimal downtime, but after last nights' shenanigans by the web host I'm crossing fingers and toes on both hands and both feet.

Regardless, we WILL end up live on the new dedicated server with enough hardware to easily handle the site's growth for a good while.

There will probably be some performance issues and what not for the first day or two while we tune the server, but it should be smooth sailing by the end of the week.

Thanks again to everybody for putting up with it and not complaining too much lately.

Not that we mind bug reports etc, but you know what I mean.

There have been some especially craptastic moments lately.

Ok - we have confirmed that the switch to the new server will happen starting around 8pm PST tonight.

LST should be offline for less than 30 minutes - might be a good time to watch some interviews on our youtube channel or something.

..insert clever ideas of other stuff to do here...

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
