Phase 1 Update – Completed in one day! Thanks to everyone who jumped on the chance to support the site. The goal was reached and the upgrade has been initiated and should be complete by Monday. This will add a lot of capability to the server and hopefully you will notice the difference on the front end of the site. I am starting work on outlining Phase 2 which will involve helping to support the hosting of the site for 2014, which would be a huge help.
The Retroist Server is underpowered for the traffic it is getting. If we can reach this goal level, I will immediately upgrade the server. This should add performance to the site, allowe for more dedicated authors and let me serve up podcasts more easily.
If this goal is hit I would like to record some podcasts just for supporters of this phase.
