After last week's site migration to a new web server, I hoped that the frequent slowdowns and occasional timeouts would end. Unfortunately, the site doesn't seem to be any better now than it was before. A few people have reported to me that the site is actually worse.
Anyway, I've pretty much given up on the ability of our current hosting provider to give the site the bandwidth it needs for the traffic it's getting. From now on I'm concentrating on getting the site rebuild completed as quickly as possible so I can move the site over to a new hosting provider (Webfaction), with the new codebase running on an open source technology stack including Linux, Apache, MySQL and Python.
I've accelerated my work on the site rebuild and hope to be done pretty soon. In the meantime, you can check out a working demo (note: the content is a few months old). Right now it's mostly a collection of TODOs with a few FIXMEs thrown in for good measure.
