You may have noticed the site was down for about a half hour this morning, around 9am - 9:30'ish Eastern.

I've made some changes to the configuration of the site, which should not only make it a little faster in everyday use, but should also help us avoid the big slowdowns on Wednesday evenings and other times.

Of course, it's all "feel", so it may need further tweaking.

I may need to bring the site down for 5 minutes again later today. Sorry about that.
