Remember when there was no internet?

Remember the first day you learned that there suddenly was an internet?

Remember the first day you realized that your company could be on the internet?

Unless you are just turning 25 of course you do. One day the internet wasn't, the next day it was. 
You heard buzz and hype, words spoken in excitement by the techy friend you never fully understood, and then one day you got a Try AOL free disk in the mail. Right? Not email ... no no no no .. snail mail, the only mail back then. So you put the disk in your Apple II or maybe your Commodore and loaded up the first AOL. You had to look through a list of phone numbers provided and if you were lucky there was one in your area that wasn't long distance. You selected one and pushed the button. Then you listened to the hum, grind, and pleeps of the modem connecting, and what felt like milliseconds but was actually an hour later after AOL updated itself you were connected to AOL network .... and you were amazed .... and you didn't even know it, but you weren't actually even on the internet yet, you were just plunking around on AOL. And you heard the words for the first time "You've got mail".

Here we are what feels like a whole millennium later.
The internet is entrenched into our daily lives we use it for everything. Hell sometimes we even let it think for us, but we love it, and it delivers right? Internet 2.0 showed us that we could communicate in ways we had never considered with social networks like twitter and facebook. Interactions with the internet are commonplace now. Programmers have developed rich applications that search for us, calculate for us, pay attention for us. We can shop, talk, entertain, and most of all sell better then we could just a year ago, even a month ago, a week ago.

The internet is always growing, evolving, changing that's what makes it great.
It is the developers and business owners with ideas and new technology that drive the internet, that develop the internet that cause the internet to thrive, and new ideas come along every day. Mostly little ideas though, the kind of ideas that users don't necessarily notice., the kind of ideas that help a business be a little more organized or a company reach a slightly large audience, those ideas happen every day. But the big ideas. The ideas like the idea of the internet well that's a whole different story. The idea of social media ... there are innovations like pintrest sure .... but the idea for social media that's an idea that does not come along every day.

Enter ... quietly ... with just a crackle of an idea soon to be a burning fireball like the sun or ... dare I say ... FaceBook.

--- Overnet Millennium ---

Overnet Millennium is a new web, as new and as powerful as the idea of social media, and as challenging as the idea of the internet. The Overnet Millennium is a new way of communicating, a new way of finding, a new way of entertaining, organizing, sharing, playing, selling, buying, doing, in much the same way as the internet was so many years ago. And for business it is a whole new way to reach customers, a whole new and exciting way to put products in front of consumers. For developers, programmers, web hosts the Overnet Millennium is a BOOOOOM of new work, applications to build, host, manage, design, maintain, create. The Overnet Millennium is a catalyst for new business, new jobs, new income. And to make it even more incredible ... its roots are free.

Building the Overnet Millenium
The difference this time is that there is no AOL. No corporate gigantor to advertise with free CD's. No the Overnet Millennium starts as an open source server with a new syntax like HTML or XML and a browser extension built for Chrome, Firefox and IE. that can be downloaded from an open source project server. No billion dollar marketing campaigns, no corporate muscle, no debt, just a couple of open source developers, and a memory of countless Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP open source developers who have built the most common and reliable servers and services for the internet to date.

OMeS is the Apache of the Overnet Millennium
OMeS stands for Overnet Millennium Server simple right? It is, simply put, the server that Overnet Millennium applications will be hosted on. Just like your website is hosted on an Apache server on Linux your Overnet site will be hosted on OMeS on Linux and without this technology there is no Overnet Millennium, there is no new business model, there are no new customers.

OMeS Needs you to embrace it
So now because there is no giant corporation behind Overnet Millennium the project needs YOU. You make the difference right now. Not tomorrow, not next week, not when the software is running at top speed becoming the number 1 most talked about software on the internet, right now while it struggles to get built and perfected. You are the benefactor of OMeS. Your contribution makes all of this true. Your contribution makes all of this fast. Your contribution creates the Overnet Millennium.

Go to the site http://www.odtpserver.org you will get to read about the server see a vision of one application that might be on the Overnet Millennium soon and have a chance to donate. If you don't want to donate funds, join the project and donate time, ideas, advice. Share it on Social media, tell a friend, use it source for an incredible blog post. All your donations will be accepted.

The Overnet Millennium is up to you.

HALLELUJAH my DNN install is flying now!

Got slow Dot Net Nuke? Ya me too. I've done all the recommended tweaks; Increased ram on my server, moved each portal into it's own worker process, allocated more processor to the worker process, changed all the caching settings, you name it I've done it.

This next little bit of magic came from Pinalkumar Dave, it's an SQL query that you can run on any database in SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 to defragment all the indexes. Fragmented indexes in SQL server can slow the database down to a slow crawl but defragmenting them brings them back to life, and DNN has ALLOT of indexes. When I checked the fragmentation on mine they were all at 95% to 100%. By the way this is great stuff for any site that uses SQL server.

So without further of my ramblings here is the code from Pinalkumar run it on your DNN database and poof like magic your DNN install will blaze off the browser. If it doesn't you'll need to do some of the tweaks mentiond above.
