How're we doing today?

Well, the good news is that we've crossed the 1000 user mark and are sending out in excess of 10000 messages a day.
On the downside, our hardware is starting to buckle under the load. We knew that sooner or later we'd start to hit the limits of our home-brewed infrastructure - indeed we needed to reach that limit in order to know what it was so that we could plan our upgrades more effectively.
Now that we've actually hit that limit, we need you guys to hold out for a few days while we do some upgradation. We know messages are taking pretty long to get delivered. We're working on it - and we need you to bear with us in the meanwhile. We'll be as good as new before you know it!
