Fast servers change [Aug. 27th, 2001|01:34 am]
Paid Members


I've made some changes to when the fast servers are used. Before you had to be logged in, then anywhere you went was fast.

However, your username.livejournal.com domain was still slow to people visiting your journal. Now it's fast. So when you make links to your journal in other places, use your username.livejournal.com address, not /users/username/. The exception is friends pages... those aren't fast on username.livejournal.com URLs, unless you're logged in.

Also changed--- /login.bml is fast, so if slow servers are overloaded, jump right to www.livejournal.com/login.bml and login.

Oh, also --- customview.cgi is always fast now too, so if you embed your journals in your website, your webserver doesn't have to be "logged in".

This is probably a goofy request, but I'd like to see a little bit more detail on status.livejournal.com than "Things are broken. We're working on it." For example, just something like "2:00am: the database servers are really slow. We're implementing new code right now. Update, 7:00am: Oops, we found some bugs. We can't back out now, so it might be a few hours before things are fixed. Update, 11:00am: We've put a spare development server into service as a production server; maybe the extra machine will fix things. Update, 11:30am: We think we have all of the bugs fixed, but free accounts might still be experiencing problems because <insert whatever reason here>."

That way we at least know things are progressing. It'd only take a minute or two to write stuff like that, and let's face it, LiveJournal is not so vital a service that we couldn't wait an extra minute for it to come back up!

More detail is always nice, and the status page is our friend! It helps us understand what you're going through, it makes you feel like you're keeping us involved, and we're not going to string you up because you've found a bug or anything. :)

Y'all are doing a great job, especially on a mostly volunteer (and, if not, an extremely low-paid) basis. Keep it up! And we still love you. *grin*

but I hate context switching :(

I did update the paid members' servers' 500 error message a few times during the night. I didn't timestamp it though.

Thank you all!!!

Yes, it's redundant but some things bear repeating - over and over again. You definitely deserve all the kudos above and more. Lightning quickness abounds and joy falls over all of LJ-land.
