Since traffic on this site has been especially high this year, I fully expect it to crash tomorrow night.

You've got it all wrong:



In seriousness, I think you or some other mod mentioned that you might close off Atlas only to people who are registered to try to stop it from crashing? If so that would be nice if possible to somehow limit the server load enough.

Yes. I sent Dave some changes tonight. If he does them all you should notice some differences, besides members only. No search, no "new reply" warning when you click Post, small other things. I think it'll be enough. I hope so anyway!

There were already at least 15 people there when I voted around 6:15. We donít even have any really competitive races on the ballot. I guess maybe itís the school board drawing the attention.

Voted early, donated to Gillum, O'Rourke, and my senator Warren this cycle. Really hoping for a good night for Dems. Regardless of party, get out and vote today guys. The power is in your hands.

Thanks, this is really annoying on election day since it often takes several tries due to warning.

Per a FB friend in Hamilton County, Indiana (the wealthiest and most educated county in the state):

"Hamilton County early voting: 32,844.  Mailed-in absentee ballots: 9,777.  Over 23,000 voted in person already today."
