laggy lag lag?

tonight the loading times have been a bit longer than usual.

is anyone else experiencing this?

could it be the crazy american heat wave burning up the server room?

Re: laggy lag lag?

I've seen this happen sometimes too.  Sometimes, I've even traced it to the server itself being slow (not a network issue).  This is running on a VPS (virtual server running as a slice on a shared machine), so it could be the case that load spikes on other servers on the same machine might slow our server down.  My hosting company claims that's not supposed to happen (each server is supposed to be isolated from the load of others), but they've never been able to explain these periodic slow-downs.

The other problem, of course, is that it's so sporadic that it's really hard to catch.  By the time I report it, it has usually already cleared up, and then it's too late for them to investigate (they can poke around at logs, but that doesn't help much).
