Roadfood.com Database Upgrade Mon, 04/17/06 11:27 PM (permalink)
Roadfood.com just moved the database to a fancy new server which should make the user experience MUCH faster. Thanks to the the Roadfood Insider members whose contributions make upgrades possible. Without you, Roadfood.com would not be afford all the bandwidth the forums utilize.

    NICE! Just out of curiosity, what kind of servers are you running on now? (Not the software, but hardware portion)...

        Me too! The RF site now loads about 2 seconds faster than before.
