Scheduled downtime for our community


  • Admin

    Hey all - we'll be doing some maintenance to the community server today at 3PM EST. The forum will be down for hopefully just a few minutes - up to an hour at most.

    We've been running this website on a shared server with five other websites (wordpress, ghost, and another NodeBB forum) on a single core 512MB box. It's about time we upgraded our "potato" (as @baris keeps calling it) to something a bit more powerful, and hopefully you can see a noticeable speed increase in page loading times.

    Subscribers on our SaaS platform will be completely unaffected by this. Sorry for the inconvenience!

    Cool, it will be nice to see how fast this forum can be with more power behind it.



  • Interested to see what kind of potato you upgrade to. Baked potato with sour cream and cheese sounds great. A while back I benchmarked the speed of NodeBB vs competitors, and it faired well even from the 512MB box (but later it got much slower actually):

    Don't forget the bacon.

    It really depends, the community is usually run on pretty edge builds so sometimes we might run into a performance hiccup or two.

    I was thinking about a poutine instead 😛



  • I was thinking about a poutine instead 😛

    I've been watching "Chopped: Canada" on the food network recently. No poutine! It's like they're ashamed or something 😞

    @Kamal-Patel Oh, you made that topic eh?

    Please edit it so the link to NodeBB actually points to NodeBB 😄



  • @julian Oh noez, now I can't reproduce a load time of 1.2 seconds! If I can get it below 2.0 seconds, I'll change the link. Or I could link to a different node forum. They're all baseline fast I believe?

    @psychobunny Poutine is amazing. I only found one place in San Diego that had it (where I was introduced to it, actually), and then I found two more places around Chicago. Speaking of French / Canadian dishes, is it true that Kraft Mac and cheese is as popular there as I'm told it is?

    KD is basically every bachelor / student's meal 3 times a day in Canada. Either that or ramen 😛


  • Admin

    Dunno about you, but when I was a student, I had chicken fingers and coke daily 😛

    Lavish. 😁
