People, how about some new categories? Politics; Fashion/Fads; Science/Engineering?

Also, could there be a set of check boxes with each of the categories and you select what you want to see? Most of the politics on this site is foreign to me.

Could try the tag cloud


The site isn't really sorted into categories like that though. Tagging pictures is the easiest way to do it. I'd love to have the time but to be honest it's unlikely there'll ever be a material change in features or the site again.

Speaking of; has anybody noticed any performance changes since the hardware migration? Is it faster? Slower? No difference?

Top List faster, login unreliable but cannot replicate. Everything else same same to me.

Cool. It all feels snappier to me, but it's also moved 15,000km closer to us smiling smiley

I wonder if it's noticeably slower for US/Euro visitors.

The hardware it's running on is nowhere near as powerful as it was. But, with the porn site gone, it also doesn't need to be.

The anon bots are getting more sophisticated, must be all the AI tech hitting the mainstream lately.

Added 50% more RAM and 25% more CPU to the cluster today. Because I can. And another 2 php accelerator nodes.

Probably won't notice any difference, but hey ho.

Also moved it directly off the firewall instead of off the network core. So it's a step closer to the internet; not that it'll make any impact to speed since it was sub-1ms response time and 25Gb link.

Things you do when you're bored.

Patched everything tonight.

Need to figure out how to upgrade the PHP accelerators to a later OS. Big job; but at least everything is still current.

smiling smiley The bits that actually run the site, which is all written in PHP, have a bunch of accelerators, caching units and things.

I'm trying to get the site from PHP7 to PHP8. I got 95% of it working last night, but that last 5% is a killer so had to take a backup of my work; restore my previous backup of the accelerators and get the site back online.

I'll flip back to the new image at some point maybe tonight and have another go. I remember the exact same issue was a killer when I moved the hosting to its current setup. Exactly the same error. And I fixed it by doing ...... pj smiley thing ? NFI.

But if I can get this last issue resolved everything is on fully supported LTS Linux images so should be good for the life of the site, basically. Because I'll probably never do this work again smiling smiley

I've got everything working except actually displaying the image smiling smiley

Forum works; gallery works; main page works. But you click on an image and it drops dead.

Ah well whatever, far from urgent.
