This past weekend, the Gremlins got into Major Spoilers and started mucking about with stuff.Â Not really sure what happened, but repairs made to the site until the wee hours this morning seem to have fixed whatever the major malfunction was — that and a swift kick to the server.
While it looks like things are running smoothly now, the issue has prompted Major Spoilers to make a change to the way the site is hosted.Â Â While this is an increased cost to us by about 10 fold over what we are paying now, it should lessen the issues, errors, and hangups users have been experiencing with the site.Â If all goes according to plan, you will not notice a significant change when the switch is flipped.
If you are having use problems with Major Spoilers (site loading slowly, content not appearing, error messages, and the like), please feel free to contact me and we’ll poke around and see what other monstrosities we can scare up.
