Making the Site Faster

Just a quick note, that over the next month or so I am going to be changing cache settings, trying content delivery networks and other things to try and improve the recently slow speeds of the site. This is will involve down time, sometimes even slower page load times, out of date pages and missing images and files but it will all be worth it in the end.

If you experience problems with site chances are I know about it and you should try again in 5 or 10 minutes. Thank you for your understanding.

Update (10/08/10): Over the night and into this morning the site was moved to a new provider, The Rackspace Cloud, who should be able to handle any traffic spikes and scale with me as my sites grow. I will provide a full review with reasons behind my diction soon. The content delivery network has yet to be implemented however the page load times are greatly improved and the network may not be needed.
