Hello ActiveRain! We wanted to let you know about a few updates we are working on. I apologize first and foremost for the poor performance issues you have been experiencing lately. We are not about to enter that nightmare we experienced last spring and the reason we won't is because our developers are on top of it.
We are in the midst of upgrading our database servers. The database is responsible for storing all your wonderful blog entries and comments. Think of us as replacing your old Pinto with a shiny new Mercedes.
A datacenter migration was the cause for the last bit of downtime. We needed more space to fit all your valuable information in. We're upgrading your one bedroom condo to one of the homes you see on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills......I'm not the only one who watches that right?!?!?
I wish I had an ETA for you but I do not. We will be rolling out upgrades over several weeks. ActiveRain may be intermittent unavailable during evenings for several hours.
Thank you all for your ever patient ways. I know it's rough but we'll get there!
