    I don't see server load. PHP and MySQL only.

    I'm willing to give free seminars on cronjobs and scripts, in addition to responsible database maintenance (eg, phased work that is automatically done in small batches every 5 seconds rather than all at once).

    At the bottom of the page it indicated 98% of the time in MySQL which is abnormal. Someone was doing database "maintenance" or other heavy scriptwork. Made loading pages take forever to start...

    I saw it. Where is Mark G to say "tracert, tracert". And why don't you ever volunteer to help the site, Asher?
