BlenderNation started as an experiment in blogging three months ago. By now, the site receives some 5500 unique visitors per day and the combination of a 10 year old 300Mhz server and a cable modem didn't quite cut it anymore.
Today, I moved the website to a new webserver at a professional hosting service. Everything went pretty smoothly and the site should now be much faster for everyone.
Depending on your network, you may notice that you have been moved to a www2 address; this is only a temporary measure that I had to take to guarantee that we had no downtime on the site. Please don't link to this address.
A big thanks to Jeroen of Anywise, my hosting partner, for making this such a smooth ride!
Now that we're safe and sound on the new server, I'm not afraid to show you what the old one looks like. This is the same server that we used to gather the 100,000 Euros that Ton needed to buy the software from the investors in order to open source Blender, and the one that has hosted vrotvrot.com for more than 8 years. Ton and I lovingly call it 'Vrotje' :-)
