Updates have commencedFebruary 24,2005 1:36 - Rollie
I unleashed my rewrite of the update process and it's been tearing through the backlog. I had nearly 700 files worth of backlog about 4 hours ago and I'm now down to about 200.
100 files an hour is a significant improvement over what I had going before. The current incarnation is able to consume thousands of character entries per second so we're rocking now =)
I have it throttled to only do so many updates an hour, so it could still take another few hours to get totally caught up, but it should be back to current by morning.
If you notice any funkiness with character entries or otherwise, please let me know ASAP so that I can track down any issues with the rewrite.
Thanks for your patience!
