Yesterday was a big day, tomorrow is a big day and now we’ve made today a big day.
What am I talking about…?
Well, for fans of the Terminator movie franchise, you might be interested in knowing that yesterday (April 19, 2011) at 8:11pm Skynet came online.
What that means is that the infamous “Judgment Day” is set to happen tomorrow.

Yesterday, director James Cameron actually tweeted “Skynet was supposed to go operational tonight.”
So, just to recap:
April 19: Skynet comes online
April 20: Database server upgrades at Elite Email completed
April 21: Judgment Day
Is that a coincidence? Yep, probably…
But, still, it’s worth mentioning!
[As a legal disclaimer the chance of our new database server turning against mankind is slim… very slim…]
In all honesty, I am very happy to say that we have successfully completed an upgrade to our database servers. We now have a LOT more power under the hood.
We’ve grown a lot in the past 12 months with new users signing up every day from around the world, and we needed to make sure our backend infrastructure is always a step ahead so we can continue to provide a flawless experience when using Elite Email.
This round of upgrades puts us way ahead and it was all done with less than 5 minutes of downtime.
[Kudos to our system administrators!]
Plus, these upgrades will help power all the new reporting features that we just released (in beta).
