Just a quick heads up. We'll be taking the site down for a short amount of time tonight at 11. We're working on installing a load balancer that should increase the speed of the website. Thanks for your patience in advance.
I will never complain about a product this awesome for absolutely free. If it is a big problem use chrome and install adblock. You can right click any add that gets past that filter and block it yourself.
Good news - Everything went fine last night. The outage was under 5 minutes. To clarify my original post, what we did last night will not make the site faster. That will come after step number three. We'll be installing a second server to do that shortly. A bunch of tech stuff that I don't always understand but we are on the right track.
