    i was looking back at the historical specifications of previous BC servers. BC managed to grow processing power pretty quickly over the years.

    1998: some 300MHz Pentium3 that was also my desktop workstation in graduate school.
    1999: slow Celeron on a shared server with 200 other hosts
    2000: dual 300MHz Celeron sitting on my company's network.
    2001: 1.7GHz Celeron dedicated server
    2003: 2.4GHz Pentium4
    2004: Dual 2.8GHz Xeon
    2008: Dual Quad-Core Xeon.

    looking at the forum usage right now, the decision to do the upgrade around 3pm PDT was a good one. there were hardly anyone aruond then as europe/asia were asleep and Americas were busying sunbathing in the Sunday afternoon sun.

    so honored that some members tries to log into BC when they should be engrossed in the extremely popular soccer final in Europe.

    ..in 20 yrs, we'll still be behind, as the world's fastest computer will probably be the BlueGene/LLLLLL 36000000 teraflops...

    ..actually next weekend wouldn't be a bad time also to do an upgrade. As next week is the Fourth of July weekend and most Americans will be away for the weekend..

    ..imagine all the BCers who really hate soccer and want to log into BC, but can't; instead, they had to suffer by watching it on TV...they must be feeling frustrated saying "Why is kwun doing this to us?!?!"...

    Default ^^Hey..^^

    ..personally, i won't boycott BC. I'd probably follow the instructions given on the screen, when BC is down for maintenance, to "Just go out & get my lazy behind to play some baddy!"..

    dunno what happen, is it cuz of the server upgrade or what, but i can't get into the forum thru http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/ or any other link from the main. I could do this posting thru the ip address only.
