I am starting to wonder if there is a serious performance issue with the SF hosting service. Despite frequent database maintenance, this site remains the only slow site I deal with on a daily basis. Everything else is zippy across home broadband and office network.

Would it make sense to explore another hosting service? Or at least do more troubleshooting?

I'm willing to make a small donation (and I think others would as well) if it is needed to defray extra costs that might lead to speed improvements...

Any thoughts on how to speed things up?

Gee, if only there were a thread with more than 3000 replies discussing this. If only...

Didn't you do this during the last round of frequent lag problems?

Also, AF, this is the type of thread I'd expect from a new user. I know you know how to find TransMod.

A shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of the dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in a Broni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the shepherd... "If I tell you exactly how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one?" The shepherd looked at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looked at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answered "sure".

The yuppie parked his car, whipped out his IBM ThinkPad and connected it to a cell phone, then he surfed to a NASA page on the internet where he called up a GPS satellite navigation system, scanned the area, and then opened up a database and an Excel spreadsheet with complex formulas. He sent an email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, received a response. Finally, he prints out a 130-page report on his miniaturized printer then turns to the shepherd and says, "You have exactly 1586 sheep. "That is correct; take one of the sheep." said the shepherd. He watches the young man select one of the animals and bundle it into his car.

Then the shepherd says: "If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my animal?", "OK, why not." answered the young man. "Clearly, you are a consultant." said the shepherd. "That's correct." says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?" "No guessing required." answers the shepherd. "You turned up here although nobody called you. You want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked, and you don't know crap about my business...... Now give me back my dog."

Sorry have not checkes the TransMod thread lately. I though that was more for bannings and timeouts but now I know it's more of a catchall.

You have a serious fixation. Did you talk to a doctor about this? (oh no please don't threaten to beat me up at some street corner...)

I think if j had someone donate some "in kind" risk analysis it would help things.
