As it warms up, data returns from wintering in the south to find food. A notice from the site’s hosting service:
As you may have heard, IPv4 IPs are becoming extremely scarce (as in
there are no more being given out by ARIN, the entity that regulates
their distribution and use). Unfortunately, IPv6 is not fully supported
so it’s not yet possible to simply switch to that. This has left us in a
situation where we need to wisely manage those IPs which are under our
control. To that end we are reorganizing our network which means we’re
going to be migrating your account to a shiny, brand new server!
Your site will be migrated to a new server at your current data center
at the start of next week or shortly thereafter. We’ll be sending a
follow up notification with specific details. We will also be closely
monitoring the migration process to make it as painless as possible.
Please note, however, that you may experience some higher than usual
loads while your data is being moved over, which may cause slower load
times than usual on your websites. You will find this to be particularly
likely for database-driven sites in the first 24 hours after migration
(as MySQL moves take longer – this will result in some temporary
latency). We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.
We are very happy to share this great news with you – it will only mean
a better and more reliable experience for you.
So fair warning:
Next week theLogBook will probably be reeeeeeeaaaaaaalllllllyyyyyyyy slllloooooooooowwwww.March 14, 2014 at 11:30 pm #6560

Ten days later and I’m really happy with how zippy things are. Has it sped up for everyone else?March 25, 2014 at 5:12 am #6562
My home connection will randomly slow down for no discernable reason as of late, so I never noticed a thing.October 24, 2015 at 2:52 pm #6563
Dreamhost is doing some server stuff this weekend, so apologies if the site’s accessibility has been…random.
There will be a PHP upgrade on Dreamhost’s end in November, so there’s more…fun…to look forward to.April 9, 2016 at 2:52 am #6564
Another possible minor downtime incident next week…
Our technical operations team is constantly working to improve our services. As part of these improvements, we will be performing a scheduled maintenance on your web server. This maintenance will take place this Tuesday, the 12th of April, starting at 7AM PST. The maintenance will take up to 2 hours to complete. In most cases, downtime is usually less than 5 minutes, however there can be up to 30 minutes of downtime (in a worse case scenario). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause!
