    Upgrading to XServe G5?? Are they shipping them out yet??
  3. macrumors 6502a


    they make it sound so complicated they need some fat BW pipes and Xgrid just for forums :rolleyes:

    it looks bad imho to have a major computer mfg not able to hold down the fort on a working webpage area for more than a week.

    They say it is the software written by some other company causing the problems. If that is really the case maybe they should have written it themselves.

    Boy was I a little slow. I thought it was only my computer. Never thought it was the site. After seeing there new xserver demo in Boston last December I was kinda under the assumption that... well you get it. So you think they could learn from "Mac Forums" huh?

    Another week later (mar 22) and they are still having problems. Custom avatars, leveling, votes all still disabled. Update says they are running on two servers now. *sigh*

    just put it all on a customized vbulletin imho =\

    Seems to me, there is always someone else to blame with Apple.

    I surprised that Apple wouldn't have written their own software for the site. :confused:
