A big step forward

Hi everyone,

Last night we flipped a switch to improve the long-term stability of the WebBasedCron architecture. To make a long story short we moved cron job execution, the database and the web server on to separate boxes. Some of you may have experienced a few hiccups – but everything should be running smoothly now. If you are experiencing any issues please don’t hesitate to contact us.
