For the past few weeks the site has been very slow loading up on my machine. I haven't had any problems out of any other sites that I go to and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

I guess it's just me since there have been no replies. Very strange since this doesn't happen anywhere else but here.

The load on the site is always highest on Mondays. Back to work blues?

I did restart several services today and got the load back down to normal (which is still way high compared to other servers I manage).

Server speed and performance issues are currently my main priorities for the next year. We will be looking at database replication, caching, and improving the code to be more efficient in that time. Also one of my main goals is to ditch our old gallery in favor of our own image storage areas in your profile area. That should free us up quite a lot as well.
