We've now been running a month solely on the new server. The number of listeners has held steady. The peak usage was 42 simultaneous users. The old system was limited to 40.
There was one significant outage this month. We don't know the cause - but the entire server failed and had to be rebooted. The cause isn't known. Other than that, all is going well. Please do continue to let us know what you think.
Enjoy! And Happy Easter to all!
