Spring Updates

Things have been busy in the HiFi Hunter camp lately. There’s been a lot of work under the bonnet to address some stability issues with the search engine. These should now be addressed and you should have no more problems with failed searches.

The search results are now sorted better to ensure the most relevant and closest matches are at the top.

A new search spider has been rolled out is now indexing many additional sites already, including vinylengine.com, theartofsound.net, thecrossovernetwork.co.uk, audiomart.co.uk, decibelhifi.com.au, TirNaHiFi.org, HTGuide.com, AVSForum, Canterbury hifi and Sevenoaks Sound & Vision, to name a few. Many more sites are being added to the index all the time, so watch this space.

Happy hunting!

Server Migration

Good news! HiFi Hunter has just bee migrated to a new host in a new data centre, so should be even faster and more responsive now. Previously it had become apparent that visitors from some UK ISP’s (VirginMedia and TalkTalk most notably) were being hit by network routing issues, causing severe page loading problems. Since these issues lay outside of the sites host and these ISP’s networks, the simplest solution was to move the site to a different location!

Either way, I hope everything should be much better and faster now.
