    MacRumors will be undergoing server maintainence operations today (Sunday, Feb 6 2005) which will result in the forums being down for much of the day.

    I spoke with Arn today. He said that the server was upgraded to a new Xeon system. So this may explain why MR is much snappier. I asked about why he didn't choose an xserve, but it was like a dead wall.

    hehehee

    I think that's hilarious, running Mac Rumors on a Xeon box....

    That might explain the errors and slowness all on it's own :rolleyes:

    But it sped up when the Xeon boxes were put in. Don't bash it cause you don't understand it.

    Could be worse. Could be running Windows on those Xeon servers.

    Is the main page's forum activity bar still "detached" from the system?

    Maybe the xeon box is a sponsor donation?
