the event today beat out our previous record set earlier this year i believe:
Just noticed that..
Great job MR!!
Thats impressive. Apple is going to need quite a show to beat that again.
Excellent, perhaps we will break the 10 k barrier at MWSF 08.
I watched the first spike at about 12:25 Central, and it went up to 7800ish,then tapered off, so I thought that was gonna be it. 10k's the next stop.
No way! 9,519 is exactly the theoretical maximum before the space-time manifold collapses into a singularity.
great news! Looks like the servers did a decent job... I have been on for around an hour and the speed feels normal!
thanks... knox deserves a lot of credit.
It was a bit of a struggle keeping things up this time. we had a lot of last minute issues we had to work around (database errors for one).
Phew! That was a lucky escape then...
Good thing I missed it then I guess.
Since the universe is expanding, our capacity will be greater next time.
So the max for MWSF is somewhere between the current record and 10k. If you could please calculate it out and post it, it might help us avoid a total collapse of the universe.
Don't worry about it. The moderators know how to uncollapse universes if necessary.
Seriously, the number of forum users depends on two factors: the level of interest in the event and the performance of the forum system. MacRumors adds more server capacity for big events like Macworld, and that keeps performance up, allowing more users to join the fun. In past years, we sometimes reached the site capacity/limits without accomodating everyone who was trying to participate in the forums, and we always hope to avoid that.
Pherhaps people complaining about the iPhone cut price
