Technology Update - FirstShowing is Running on a New Server
by Alex Billington
July 11, 2010
I'm sure a few of you have noticed that we've been experiencing some tech troubles recently, with downtime and server lag issues, so we decided to fix all those problems once and for all change our server and web host to Liquid Web. As of now, our domain is pointed at the new server and the DNS updates are propagating throughout the world. However, since this is a pretty big update, if you notice anything out of the ordinary, anything that doesn't seem right, any tech problems, glitches, slow loadtimes, other website-related issues, please get in touch with Alex directly at this email. Let's debug this sucka' and get her running at full speed!
If you notice different versions of the site, with posts missing, that change back and forth, I suggest clearing your cache (for Windows or Mac) as that will help get you the new DNS information quicker. We are hoping that this new server will provide a more stable, faster, smoother, better viewing experience for all of you, our readers. We also hope that the transition to our new home was entirely flawless, but there are always minor hiccups and tweaks to be made, so please let us know if you find anything out of ordinary. We appreciate all feedback you provide. Coming up soon is Comic-Con! Awesome server photo courtesy of "Herkie" on Flickr.
Note About Comments: Due to the server switch, some comments may randomly disappear or reappear over the next day (Sunday) until we finish tweaking things. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause!
