    45,000 is damn impressive. I'm amazed the servers aren't melting. Did you guys beef up for the iOS 5 launch?

    I wonder why they took the avatars down when the iPhone 4S was released... And they haven't this time, and the traffic is higher. :confused:

    Also confused. After the 4S announcement I got messages saying the server was busy. None today. Maybe they upgraded the back end in that time frame?

    Yeah. Perhaps this board has had an increase in popularity due to the ever-increasing popularity of Apple. The back end might not have been updated since the traffic was a lot less...?
