Yesterday, we migrated PT to its new server: Proteus. Proteus is a beast of a machine: FreeBSD 8.2, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor, 16GB of memory, and 5 2TB drives in a ZFS raidz2 array. Most of the hardware was provided by the Talk Origins Archive Foundation. If you want to support PT, you can donate to TOAF.
The server migration is the first step in a series of improvements that will hopefully make PT better. The second step has also been completed: requiring registration to comment. Hopefully, registration will go smoothly, but if you are having problems email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
