This morning, for the first time in some time, when attempting to post, I got a 404 error and the site appeared to go down.  No pages would load from the database, though the home page would.  About five minutes later, all was well again. . . The overall speed is way up over what it has been....almost all of the time.

Thanks for chiming in wow.  I was hoping it wasn't just me that thought things were running faster.  I honestly think we worked out the performance issue and now only have the dissconnect issue to contend with.  Thankfully even that has been very limited with I think maybe three times in the last two weeks including today.

Amazing what can happen when a human actually responds that is willing to work with you.

We've got some big upgrades coming soon which is why I got so pissed off when this started happening so I may still keep shopping for another host.  At least this is usable now though :D

I made another tweak/adjustment per their recommendation to further improve performance.  So please keep me posted if you experience brutal load times or complete disconnects.  Slowness at times should be acceptable as we are on a shared host.  It would cost almost what I pay per year each month if we switched to a dedicated server so I don't think were ready for that right now lol.

It may still be a tad slow at the time of this post as well since I'm in the middle of truncating a table right now.

Site seems good the last few days / week
really no slow downs

Robb
what FIOS tier are you on  ?

Still nothing in my area but its like 2 miles down the road.

Fast
Up to 10 Mbps/2 Mbps    $42.99/month

Faster
Up to 20 Mbps/5 Mbps    $52.99/month

Faster Plus
Up to 20 Mbps/20 Mbps    $64.99/month  (this plan looks nice/affordable)

Fastest
Up to 50 Mbps/20 Mbps    $139.95/month    (but would love this plan)


Comcast should be boosting by the end of the year and into next to 50 Mbps (or so they say)
I'm in around 16 to 28 (average 21) at times but my uploads suck at 1.5

I'm on the 20/20 plan and it rocks.  The biggest issue I've seen is that the vast majority of sites/servers you are hitting can't keep up with that anyway.

And I got the 20/20 bundled with a triple play so I'm not paying anywhere close to 65 bucks for internet :D

Since I just got the server error a moment ago, it reminded me to let you guys know that I have purchased a new plan through a different host.  So far in testing it seems to run very nice.

News and details will be coming soon when we are ready to move the current site over :D
