Came to my attention some people were worried about the possibility of losing content on the site if our virtual server crashes. To put things at ease….

At this time GLG SQL database and entire site content gets a backup every day at 11pm to dropbox. This dropbox copy is seeded on multiple systems and also retains multi-version copies.

In other news due to some angel funding we are getting a brand new dedicated server I am going to install in a datacenter to self manage like before.. Some of the spec below.
2x 6 core Xeon processors
32gb of ram
2x 160GB ssd
4x 500gb-2000gb regular drives

The site is going to start loading 10x faster. Combined with the new design I hope to have the community grow!
