Welcome on the new server !

Welcome on the new server !

If you see this news then you have arrived on our shiny new server. The 2 servers that faithfully served you guys for the last 2 years have been replaced with a single Quad Core server with 4 GB of RAM and lots of bandwidth. I guess there will be some non working stuff here and there, but it looks like the migration itself was rather painless, if a bit longer than anticipated.
Update: You may have seen some weird errors lately. Yep, there is something very wrong with the new machine. I'm calling it a night now, but tomorrow morning we'll head back to the old server in order to check what's wrong with the new one. Hopefully it won't crash completely during the night...
Update 2: And here we are, back on the old setup...

The king is dead, long live the king!! :)

You guys always give me full downloadspeed (which is 2,8MB/s), I hope it may continue for a long time..

Only the front-end servers have been changed, web and database. The download servers aren't planned for a change for a loooong time :)

Back Online Again, Sweet! I just realized how much I am addicted to Xboxyde when I started coming every minute to check what was up when it was offline! :D

Congrats on the new server! :D

Great! Also impressive to see how the site has grown. I used to check xboxyde every few days back then, but after I "rediscovered" gamersyde, I nearly check it daily.
Commented on 2007-11-25 01:43:03
Great job! I've been following Gamersyde site since the beginning thou i've only recently started posting. It's always been a great site, and i'm happy to see it's always getting better.

Maybe slightly, but it's just because the site has always been pretty fast I think.

Ah so thats why this site was down. Works great now, awesome job guys!

"You guys always give me full downloadspeed (which is 2,8MB/s), I hope it may continue for a long time.."

Thats odd, cause I used to max my downloadspeeds here aswell, but that was a long time ago now sadly.. Now I only downloads at maximum 500 kb/sek if im lucky. :(
I thought the downgraded speeds were for everyone.

Well the pages loads a lot faster now atleast! Great job guys! :)

Keep up the hard work lads ;)

I gotta say : am living in china and this is one of the fastest foreign servers I know. My expat live has become a bit more bearable :) thanks!
Commented on 2007-11-25 02:36:39 In reply to Trebby
already was as fast as i could do anyway lol =P
Commented on 2007-11-25 02:52:40
I can't tell the difference, but it's great to know you're now more prepared for even more users.

I hope this site keeps growing fast, but remains awesome as usual!

It really works.. What it does is bassicly bind all the downloadservers this website offers into 1 download, resulting in me almost always reaching my full 2800KB/s downloadspeed.. Plus you can pause and resume downloads later, also handy..

Congrats on the smooth change. I love your site and I visit daily.
Commented on 2007-11-25 07:59:51

What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane In the US that is (1 minute ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Combined console sales of PS4/XO in 2016 were down 7% from 2015. (8 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane FF15 had the best launch month of any final fantasy game in the US!!! and this performance does not include digital sales!!! (47 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tiz: Most big games were larger than what a standard CD-ROM disc could store, so it wasn't unusual that pirated games were lacking audio tracks or movies. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tiz: Sega used a proprietary GD-ROM format (about 1GB discs) for storage. It did not stop piracy though as you with a bootdisc could start cd-r copies without the need to hard mod the console. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (4 Hours ago)
