MotD: I know the server is slow
By @Creator MightyE
I realize the server is acting slow, and I'm sorry for the inconvenience. The company we host with was recently bought out (it was formerly owned by a friend). The new owners obviously aren't as capable as the previous owners, I have several services hosted here and they're all really hurting right now.
I'm inclined to give these guys another week or two to figure things out, because <em>for the most part</em> the performance problems have been short term, and historically this company has provided me with really great service. But I'm not going to give it long before I switch to a new host.
Incidentally, if anyone knows of a good hosting provider, let me know; I'm in the market. I priced out Amazon AWS, and costs would be about 2.5x what we pay now for fewer resources.
