Come one, come all

Looks like the new server was a good investment - thanks to the distributed (dare I say ‘viral’ without having assorted foodstuffs thrown at me?) publicity campaign for the OGRE 1.4.0 final release, there has been a stampeding of feet towards ogre3d.org. Website hits tripled their normal pace to 1.5 million yesterday and downloads increased by even more than that, with a total of 5,000 files being pulled down (peaking at 400 an hour at one stage), sucking a total of 135GB in bandwidth - thank God for the Sourceforge mirrors is all I can say! I also monitored the server occasionally to see how it was coping and it’s managing very well - hurrah.

I spent a little time in between the 1.4.0 release and the first bug report tarting up the Torus Knot website a little. It’s not much, but it looks a bit better - to be honest there’s not a great deal that needs saying right now and I’ve never been great at the whole gushing-about-ourselves thing. We do OGRE. It’s pretty cool. We also help other people with their stuff. Which is also cool. Nuff said 😀
