Ooo Server Upgrade?

Would be nice a new dev blog with server specs as it has been in the past.
It’s a nice read for us techy nerds

No, just newer ones. Ones far younger and more powerful!

Awe… so cute. A whole 30 minutes!

I remember when daily downtime was an hour, if everything went smoothly. This 30 minutes is a blessing!

The inside scoop is they are installing bigger treadmiills so they can upgrade from hamsters to Guinea Pigs. It will save them a bundle since they have 20-30,000 Guinea Pigs online at any given moment.

Can’t do it. The sewer rats from New York are too much trouble. They’re unionized.

I have figure out what is happening and what is coming and oh boy! What a twist!

I love doing hardware upgrades for games… Last one I did was a server upgrade for Roblox… All the SSDs, RAM, and CPU. Took me 4 hours total. >.<
