Guest Gallery Access « on: January 31, 2021, 04:37:04 PM » Author: Patrick
We have reopened guest access to the gallery.  However, to alleviate performance issues going forward, the system will automatically shut off guest access any time the server is under heavy load.  This will hopefully prevent the site from being overburdened when traffic is high.  Although we would like the keep the entire site open to guests as much as possible, I would recommend that any frequent visitor of the site register to ensure uninterrupted access.

That sounds like a reasonable compromise, thanks Patrick. 8)

I would assume that depends on how well things go.

Good to know! Seems like a reasonable compromise, and I’m glad you were able to incorporate an automatic switch based on server load.

I don’t collect lighting, however I have always been interested!
I enjoy photography, making videos, and will be here to photograph street and outdoor lighting.

Other interests include hiking, nature, biking, as well as identifying and photographing birds and plants.

Yeah that sounds like a reasonable compromise. I think there were only certain times of the day when the demand would be high enough from the site to be slow anyway.
