I think like 60 people were trying to be on the forum and in that thread for a lil bit
We've handled way more than that before in the fight threads.
Total traffic on the site was twice what it usually is on fight nights. I doubt it was due to the fights and assume some other site linked us or their site died and everyone jumped at the same time.

can you just bump up the capabilities/bandwidth/whatever u call it on fight nights or something?
There's a certain amount of burst ability but in general, not really. You have to scale to your highest need and then You're kind of overkill the rest of the time. This is stage one of performance improvement. There's going to be a software upgrade and then I'll redo the way we do caching to make it More efficient.

I am sure you thought of everything I suggested and more

just perfect spitballing

Just didn't know if you could have more capability during certain hours on a certain night, which it seems you really can't.

Carry on

Not on our architecture. We are pretty small and that kind of stuff you need a different setup. You still have to have access to that reserve computing power and when you get into that stuff the baseline becomes more expensive. Right now it's pretty straightforward. And it's no big deal. we have lots of ability to upgrade at the moment. If that starts to become difficult we'll talk about it as a group and come up with a plan

yep
I know it is about $$$$, which you guys just spend but don't collect.
We should pimp song out I think, maybe his ass can cover the cost of some Ram.
