March 30, 2008
This is our completely new playchess server. It has much more power than the old one.
The old server had come to age. It couldn't handle that many games any longer. Some "expensive" features (namely the variant explorer) were too much for it.
I have to apologize for all the trouble in the past. We should have moved earlier to a new server. I hoped that the old server would do its work long enough so that I could prepare the necessary move. But fate has decided differently, so I had to transfer PlayChess to the new hardware in a hurry.
I tried my best to check if everything is okay. But PlayChess is a very complex web application. I cannot exclude that I missed something.
The games will continue tomorrow (Monday, March 31st, approx. 12:00 GMT).
