We just upgraded our webmail and documentation server to a machine with more than four times the processing power and RAM. Combined with the changes we made last semester, our webmail and documentation should be faster than ever.
We haven't forgotten about our other services, though, and we're working on moving them to faster and more reliable hardware this summer. We know that many of you have been suffering with the occasional slowness in our services, and we're working on fixing it! Please be patient as upgrades to our other services require lots of planning and testing.
Before I go, I'd like to extend a special thank you to Sun Microsystems, who provided us with the hardware that made this upgrade possible. They make awesome server hardware!
