BordeauxGroup Growing Pains and our Server Meltdown

Over the past couple weeks our server has been under a high load with the release of Bordeaux 2.0.0 for Solaris and Linux. Allot of our customers have had problems with their file downloads timing out in the past couple weeks and I thought the problem would resolve it's self and the load would go down after a day or two... Well it hasn't happened, in a sense this is good news as allot of people are interested in the new Bordeaux 2.0.0 release. But it's bad news when your customers cant get the software they purchased.

To resolve this problem we our going to be upgrading to a "Dedicated Server" that has allot more memory and Bandwidth then what our old server has. The new server will help people with slower Internet connections as we can configure Apache not to time out on slower connections. After the new Server is up and configured the site should be faster and downloads more reliable.

You can rest assure we know about the problems and were doing everything we can to resolve then as quickly as possible. So we would like to ask everyone to please be patient for a couple days until we have the new server in place.

Bordeaux review at webmasterfrank.com

No, this is not a review of wine. It is in fact a review of a computer program made for those of us who use Linux instead of Windows. I use Ubuntu--a flavor of Linux--on my laptop. I use the laptop primarily for browsing the internet and Ubuntu is a bit faster than Windows on the internet and a lot more secure viruswise.

But I also need to run some programs that do not work well on Ubuntu alone. Namely Fritz Chess and CT ART-- another chess program. I tried using Wine but that alone didn't work and then I ordered Bordeaux and that did the trick. I also wanted to use AIM but so far I haven't been able to get it to work. However I have been able to get Quicktime and Grabit to work and I will continue to try additional programs in the future and inform you as to whether or not they work.

Bordeaux is a good program. It does pretty much what it is supposed to do. But it is not perfect. However it is a work in progress and so there is no telling what the future will bring. I personally would like to see a program that would emulate Windows XP entirely. There is an operating system that supposedly does this--ReactOs. But after 10 years of development ReactOs is still not available in a Beta version and so cannot be used as a reliable program nor will such a version be available soon.

If you are running Linux and need to use chess programs that do not seem to work well with Wine my advice to you is to try Bordeaux. It does come with a guarantee and so you have nothing to lose if it doesn't do what you need it to do.
