Ace says that mu.nu is under a massive spam attack today. I know that Wonderduck caught some of the flack. mu.nu is the same physical server as mee.nu (they're different virtual servers running on the same hardware) so indirectly it's possible for it to affect mee.nu performance, and I've noticed performance being poor a couple of times.
Be patient. I'm sure Pixy will do whatever he can to fix it.
I mean, "yeah, I did... me and Ace, yeah, we're about equal importance in the blogosphere."

And yes, mee.nu was running like a slug for about half an hour while I fixed things. It should be happier now. Load on the server peaked at around 400; it's back down to 7 now.

Maybe this is a sign of technical advance and we'll have ampersands any day now.

It's one physical box with about a thousand cores (give or take). The advantage of doing it that way is shared peripherals (SSD's, HD's) and shared RAM (measured in dozens of gigabytes).
And then when you set up your virtual machines you can control how much resources each one uses, so as to make the busy ones more hefty.

Now pricing has moved in a different direction and it's cheaper to run multiple small servers again, so I'm working on that. On the one hand, there's more to look after; on the other hand, no single problem can take down the whole network.
(I'll have to look at that ampersand thing... I think it's the HTML filter over at Ace's site.)

I think the running joke is 'ampersands are for closers!"

And no hitting!
