Server Move Completed!

We have moved to a new host with new servers. This should result in improved page load times. If you spot any broken features please let us know. Thank you!

Why the url change?
maybe we're on a backup server while the main server is being updated?

no the main (old) server will be disconnected and the two new servers connected .. it takes a while for the dns to propagate the new ip addresses

The image uploading problem that I MSNed you about is the only one I have experienced so far. Everything else seems to be working great :)

it does seem to work faster here. Not that TPU was ever slow, but it is a bit snappier.

Page load times 5 x faster here, must have better routing to the new server host :P. On average it take 1.5 seconds to load a page including the "Review" and "Articles" pages, which is really nice.

Kinda a broken feature. Now that new servers are up I can't get that little techpowerup logo (that red power button) to show up in my bookmark bar. I only use those icons there, so my daily sites fit there better. Oh and Firefox is the browser.

All I had to do previously was drag&drop a page there, then open it from the newly created link and the little logo was there. Somehow it doesn't work anymore and just deleted the old !.

I'd add it manually if I'd knew where to do it, but don't know the name of that link picture, so google is no help either. TY in advance if someone knows :)

EDIT: did it manually with this add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3176
but it's not looking good and there are white borders around it :(

Yesterday I noticed a few moments where the TPU wouldn't load, then was slow later. This morning, it seems to be really screamin' Sweet.

I had some problems with the pages loading in both IE7 and FF latest edition, before the move. Afterwards, its super snappy and quick and....the little circle thingy doesnt keep moving when a page is done loading, like it did before.
