Chiapas is now happily running the Freesound.org database. It wouldn’t have been possbile to start using this machine without the help of Letusa ( http://www.letusa.es ). They kindly sponsored the aquisition of this machine and of another, even pricier one I will introduce once we start using it.

The previous server was completely out of breath when we installed this machine. This one is keeping up just fine:

As you can see for yourself, Freesound.org has become snappy again and quickly responds to all your requests. Hurray for big, bad server machines! Oh and here’s one for people with hardware fetishes:

    Sweet! The site does feel so much smoother, especially visiting the forums. Sometimes could take more than a minute to simply load the forum front page, now is so fast.
