Thanks to everyone for helping us grow into the world’s largest community of actuaries.  From our freshman student actuary, to our most senior credentialed actuary, we’re glad to have each and everyone of you here on the Actuarial Outpost discussion forum for actuaries.

The Outpost gets a big bump in performance

Posted under Uncategorized

new-serverAs some of you may have noticed, with the recent May 2009 Actuarial Exam cycle, the server took a pretty good beating.  At our peak, we were cranking out 20 gigabytes of actuarial info, millions of pages at a time!  You could say we’re a victim of our own success. 🙂

We’d really like to see what this new server can do.  Help us beat our old record of most actuaries online, set at 1,605 on 07-02-2008 at 03:07 PM.  We really want to hit the 2000 mark, and make actuarial history, so email your fellow actuaries, and invite them to jon us.  You could simply send them these links and, and let them know why you read the outpost and why they should too.
