victolyWe just finished the migration to our new webserver and we're stil testing the waters. Please report any funky website behaviour here.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Question to Bart: What are the advantages that visitors will get from this migration?
    (lower latency? better up-time?... etc)

  2. @Hedge: we were running on old hardware (2years+), so I'm expecting better reliability and performance in the short term. On the long term, we also moved from PHP4 to PHP5 which means we can use a few newer WordPress plugins that I've been eyeballing for a while now.. Wait and see :)

    >>The title of the page has a rather funky spelling to it. Should be VictoRy.
    >>Speed is good!

    Looks like Bart's been using those spare potatoes to make moonshine again...

  4. The speed of the site seems much faster to me!

    on a different note, blender nation links is coming along great!

    Keep up the good works!

  5. kibagame GEN-JU-RO! on

    I knew this was a Samurai Showdown 4 reference just from the title, I must have dumped 100 bucks into that blasted machine! More money into SS2. Genjuro rocks! And hooray for your success.

  6. Nice work, Bart.
    Congratulations. You are truly victolious.
    I should get to bed now.
    But I'd like to just quote what Einstein said.
    "Try not to become a man of success, but a man of value.".
    You're a man of great value. ;)

  7. Ahhh the amazing success one can achieve, both in servers and Samurai Shodown. We have achieved VICTOLY! ....and also, ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US! (連邦政府軍のご協力により、君達の基地は、全てCATSがいただいた。)

    Bart: Seems like for some people your sens of humor is to complicated... I am reffering to recent potatos and Victoly jokes:) Anyway... Conglatulation for miglation!!!

  9. Tom (not Ton) on

    The poor BBB rodents are now in a hamster wheel someplace aren't they? Face it, steampunk may be cool looking but it'd never meet Kyoto goals. ;P

  10. I haven't noticed any differences on my own computer, but here at school the site loads faster etc. Though I can't see the larger version of the image ^^

  11. Bart is following in the steps of Blender.

    Soon he will start numbering the site's version.

    Blendernation 2.49 has been released !

    Let's wait for Blendernation 2.50 now... (live up to the hype !)

  12. One small thing I just noticed, in the sidebar it says:
    0 tutorials, downloadable models, textures and more!
    I'd say there are quite a few more than zero ;) (I don't know if the number was already zero before the server change)
    Firefox 3.0.10

  13. @Lars: yes, I'm looking into serving zipped content. It currently interferes with our caching though so it'll take a little time to fix.
