The Geeks have decided to take the training wheels off our site!
Since July 2004, the Geeks have been through several web hosting providers and solutions. We started with a shared web hosting solution and discovered that if Fark or Slashdot picked up one of our articles… the site would crawl to a stop. We then decided to up the service to a VPS (Virtual Private Server) where we had a some more dedicated resources over the shared solution.
Thanks to you, our readers, we now need the resources of a dedicated server. Rather than start at the low end, we opted for dual Opterons, Raptor hard drives and an increase of memory from 128MB to 1GB (grunt! grunt!).
Let us know how we’re doing and if you notice a speed increase with the site by leaving a comment!
