I'll take the congrats for fixing the ladder, since they broke just because they got too big.
But the site speed is actually a failure. I couldn't the new platform working properly, so last night I reverted back to the old platform.
I'm going to try again with the new platform. When it works, it's actually much faster and more stable. The problem with it was that when site traffic gets too high, it ran out of threads and ended up blocking new connections. I'll make sure this doesn't happen when I try again.
