This is just to let you know that in advance of the Urban Retreat starting on Saturday we’re busy making technical preparations to handle an expected upsurge in traffic to the website. Already in the past 10 days we’ve welcomed an extra five and a half thousand visitors (that makes 46,500 in the last month) and we want to make sure things go as smoothly as possible for everyone tuning into the content from the retreat.
The biggest change that is happening is one that - if all goes well - should be invisible to most users. In the wee small hours tonight (UK time) we’ll be moving the whole of The Buddhist Centre Online to a much faster and more robust server that should be able to handle many more simultaneous connections from site users than the current version of the site on our old server.
But if like me you aren’t in the UK then you may get a notice when you go to post something that you can’t do so. We should only be in ‘read-only’ mode for an hour or so but wanted to give you a ‘heads-up’, as they say in the movies…
Fingers crossed for us tonight!
