    Server problem

    Server performance was pretty shoddy this morning. I'm sorry about that.

    Apparently our hosting service was shunting a problematic account out the door and getting their account into a backup ready to dump was heavy on resources.

    Judging by current load speeds, which suddenly are really awesome, getting rid of the resource hog might just have been worth the high blood pressure I had while we were having problems.

    I hope it didn't ruin your day too.

    Gonna drop-kick it

    We're going to be in for 24-48 hours of downtime again, I'm afraid. But I'm tired of screwing around with shared hosting deals.

    We're going to where we won't have to worry about what the neighbours are doing.

    Speed should mainly be a function of connection speed now. The big gain should be reliability...
