About freedb2.org, by the developer. 2006-07-04 16:10:04 I would like to let you know about the current status of http://freedb2.org and provide a few hints about where it is going from here. First of all, there is now a news page at http://freedb2.org/news.html and as time permits I am posting news, documentation, and answers to frequently asked questions there.Secondly, freedb2.org has just been subjected to a day long slashdotting which levied a total of around 70,000 queries against the database and peaked at around 4,500 per hour. At no time did the server load get out of the green zone, and feedback received from visitors indicated no perceived slow down in performance.It is extremely unfortunate that owing to the events at freedb.org this week, it has been necessary to throw freedb2.org into service prematurely. However I am now confident that freedb2.org is capable of taking over the load while a long term solution is found. Please help complete the beta testing by trying out your freedb client software with freedb2.org. To do this, substitute the freedb2.org domain for the domain which is currently used in your preferences (usually freedb.freedb.org) and select the HTTP version of the protocol. I would appreciate any information that you can provide about problems that you encounter and I will also do my best to respond to any concerns you may have about events this week. As there is not yet a forum available on freedb2.org, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or post here if it is of general interest. Thank you.
