Mission ACCOMPLISHED!!!! #general


Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

Just in to report our mission today of moving the two JewishGen
servers to a T-1 line has been accomplished. I am also here to report
that you can now hear a pin drop in this house. <grin> One can only
imagine the constant "humm and crunching" that was going on in this
house... 24/7 365 days a year. Looking after machines for the last 12+
years of my life... there is quite a noticeable difference! <grin>

Barring a few missing cables.. and ONE power supply which "went south"
.. all systems appear to be a go.

You should see a substantial increase in the speed of access to our
web server... as well as more prompt delivery of your digests tonight.
The primary service providers we checked this afternoon indicated
propagation went like clockwork.. and there was probably no more than
an hour delay in most cases.

Stay tuned for some exciting announcements in the weeks to come about
some new ways to access and retrieve your JewishGen "fix" in a manner
that many of you have suggested.

Now we just need to accomplish the mission of "paying for the increase
in services". <grin> Your contributions will insure the continued
accessibility to JewishGen's information highway... which just grew by
about 24 lanes... so to speak!

To sleep, per chance to dream... ARGH, where is the noise?

If you can't tell... this is going to be an adjustment.. <rotf>
