Question Images Not Displaying

I was just wondering why the "random" images weren't displaying on the main page. All I get is the lil red X in the place of the picture. It was working fine last night, but this morning it doesn't. Is this a ~just me~ problem or is this happening for everyone? and if it is just me...how do i fix it?

Thanks,
Jay

Nope, it's everyone. The images and videos are served off a separate server. That server needs to be rebooted periodically since it gets a lot of traffic. After the tiring weekend, I just went home and fell asleep. And I forgot to do its regular reboot.

It's rebooting as I post this. The images should be back in a few minutes. Thank you for posting this--it can be difficult to maintain the technical side of this site along with everything else. Sometimes things slip through the cracks and I need a reminder.

Nah, I'm glad you let me know. Judging by how hard the server is getting hit recently, I may have to move it to a higher bandwidth connection. People may call that growing pains, but I like it!

Today's been unusually busy on the picture and video server. I've got plans in place to double and maybe triple the capacity as well as shrink the videos. Just give me time. No, I mean literally, give me some time--I don't have enough.

I hope you're not asking me to give you some time...I just had to figure out how to extend a 24 hour day to 30 hours so I could fit everything in my schedule...I wish I had some time!!!

haha...looks like you're living in my world. I've discovered the secret of squeezing more out of a day--less sleep.

Actually, I can have much faster hosting, but the problem is that it would take me much longer for site updates. Right now the server is local, so copying 2gb of files to the server takes no time. Otherwise, that same thing might take a day or two.

But I've found a way that I may be able to have quicker speeds and still have local server access. Stay tuned. I have to try some experiments.

What's up man. I've actually found a solution which will double my bandwidth. And it's infinitely expandable.

Great, server decided to stop working while I'm away from it. I'll post here when it's back up.

It's actually pretty simple--round robin DNS entries.
