Over the past few weeks, RTH has been plagued with intermittent slowdowns and occasional time-out errors. This is frustrating to me because it coincides with a steady run-up in page views since mid-summer.
Technical staff at our hosting provider suggest that the problem is related to high overall traffic on the server, and are moving the site to a a new server with less traffic. (I recently had to upgrade to a more expensive hosting plan with a higher monthly bandwidth limit.)
I'm told that the transition should take place over the next 24 hours, but that it should not interrupt site access or involve any downtime. In any case, if you experience any problems accessing the site, please be patient and try again in a little while.
Unfortunately, this is not the permanent move to a new open source platform that I've been promising; but I have accelerated my rewrite of the code base and am making some good progress on that front.
In the meantime, this move should speed up the site's response time and alleviate some frustration.
