We're now using the BIG-IP load balancer, instead of mod_backhand. The whole site seems much faster to me, and indeed... it is. We're doing 6.9 Mbps of traffic right now, compared to previous highs of around 5.5 - 6.0. We'd always flatline at 6 before.

With the new load balancer we can balance any sort of services... the finger server is now controlled by it, so should the machine that previous ran the finger server die, the load balancer will now handle that too, and deflect it to a different machine. Same with images, user pics, database connections, etc...

Now that Kenny isn't doing anything I'll work on getting a slave database connection up on it soon, then one on Marklar also. This'll happen after my finals, though... my last one being on the 8th. Kenny was running a replicated db, but then a MySQL bug stopped it replicating and it's way out of sync now, so I have to take another snapshot, since the partition I was having mysql on cartman write the binary update logs to filled up... stupid me. But stupid mysql for breaking in the first place. :-P

I can't wait for summer... I'm gonna be workin' on LJ stuff non-stop.

So bored.

UPDATE: Brad gave me a link so I've got the logos now (at least I think so). Hurrah! ;o) (and much Thanks, by the way)

I modified Loserjabber to have the new Friends padlock as opposed to the old one. I know, insignificant and piss easy. But still, I did do it. :oP

Now if there's something I'm supposed to do with it... someone let me know :o)

I (due to the fit of boredom) also want to change it, make it look all "spiffy and pretty" like the Windows client does. Well maybe not spiffy or pretty, but anyway... does anyone have a clue who made the current default style on /? If so, you think they'd send me a .bzip2 or .PSD (GIMP or Windows) with layers of the pencil? Probably no clue, but I can ask them... if anyone has a clue who did it.
