    Re: New record on the server today.

    The server did stop serving pages at times when the load got too high...

    417 people are only the ones in the forums within a certain time limit (a couple of mins)

    People who just visit the main page don't count in that...

    If you could afford it would you like to have an XServe working MacRumors? Could it stand the job?

    I would be awesome if it was on one, what kind of server is it at the moment?

    Guesses on the next record?

    When we set the old record (332) I said that we might hit 500 at MWNY...but this HUGE day makes me think we might push past that if the server is up to the load.

    So, arn, how many mugs do you need to sell to get an Xserve? :D

    This place is gunna go crazy during MWNY! You can probably double the current max. I'm not sure the server will handle it all that well, though.

    Arn, you don't serve this thing yourself, do you? That would be impressive.

    I'd love to get a chance to play around with one of the Xserve's when they come out, I hope I can find a friend who has one at work. But we wont' see these machines till June anyway, I wonder if Pixar already has some....
