Tar Heel Shared Reader

New Hardware for Tar Heel Reader

Tar Heel Reader has become so popular that it is overloading the computers that run the site. To keep the service working we have purchased a new computer that will meet the demand and allow room for continued growth.

Switching over to the new hardware will begin Thursday 15 January, at about 9AM EST. During this first stage you should NOT notice anything and the site will not (I hope) go down. If you do have notice a problem, please let me know.

In a week or so we will have to take the site down for a few minutes to do the final part of the move. We will try to do this in the early morning when use is the lightest. Again, if you experience a problem, let us know. We always appreciate your feedback.
