    I'd like to announce that for this weekend, and likely a good part of next week, I have re-built the entire website behind a load balancer. What this means, is that many more people can visit the site, and performance shouldn't be an issue. It should remain fast, and "up" for all.

    To access the newly built site, please visit:
    https://www.wackbag.com OR http://www.wackbag.com

    Thank you to those who were helping me test the additional web servers, and a huge thank you to all who donated this month. Without that giant surge, I would not have been able to get all of this set up and working properly, so again: Thank you!!

    Please feel free to HAMMER the site with posts and such to give it a good workout!

    Perhaps a post-whore thread?
    I've been looking to pass @Pigdango by the end of the year.

    Yeah, I'm getting them and that notification problem too.

    Seems to be holding up better in the post whoring thread.

    It would have dogged out the way it was earlier in the week.

    @zagman76, @zag_mobile

    The board keeps making me log in almost every time I try to post something, "like" someone else's post, open something in another tab, or check an alert.

    I use incognito browsing exclusively and my browser auto-deletes my history whenever I close it, so I don't know if I even get the cookie, for all intents and purposes.

    You get it, but it's deleted when all incognito windows are closed (if using Chrome).

    I cleared all the wackbag cookies a few times and restarted it and it seems to be letting me stay logged on

    "Private browsing" may have an effect on that. If a Cookie can't be set, then your logged in status likely won't be remembered. With the web server being load-balanced now, one click may take you to one server, and a second click may take you to another server. Can you try it in another browser (like Chrome and "Incognito" mode)?

    The sysadmin in me need to know:

    Hardware LB? Software? What's your server farm behind it?
