THE STATE OF THE UNION

 

OK guys,
If you have been paying attention over the past few days you will not have failed to notice that things have gotten really slow round here. We tried to start up an ICN Social Network which completely overloaded our Hosting CPU. But that was the only problem, the site was always quite slow. I have spent the last few days trying every single optimisation that is known to man but we had to give up the Social Network idea.
I pay for all the hosting and I just am not currently able to move to a dedicated server at this point.
The way to look at it is that we only have this problem because the site is so popular, so what is there to complain about?
So, we also have a new look. I took away the RSS feeds from the sidebars as this has been raised as a possible resource hog. So it’s not that we no longer support those sites anymore (of course we do) we just will have to do it n the main body of the site instead. Besides no one really clicked on the RSS feeds anyhow.
We are coming up on oour first anniversary in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned as we have big plans for Year Two
