It seems that the search indexing is really slowing down the site. :) It takes a 30 seconds or so for a post or pm to go through, rather than almost instant. ;)

Thanks for doing this stuff, holly.

yes, well, if you guys want the search to be fixed, you'll have to live with a slower site for awhile (it'll be another 10+ hours).

You're quicker than me, because I went back to edit--
seriously, I do understand why it's slow and I really appreciate it. It's just noticeable... which is unusual.

the more active people are on the site today, the longer it will take.

approaching post id 700,000 (this means fewer than 700,000 posts are indexed, since many will have been deleted over the years).

It's going a lot more slowly in the daytime than it was overnight, due to the server load (not just us, but any other active sites on the same server).

so the site will likely be slow all day... sorry peeps!

Beside every quote, there's a bar. Inside that bar, they might sell Guinness on tap, or they might not. Only visit the bars beside the quotes that do.
