I give up!

There is nothing else I can do right at this moment to improve usability of the site.

The Internet's attention span can not last much longer....I hope.

There are potentially several bottlenecks where things are hanging, some can be addressed with some hardware upgrades, others maybe more complicated to figure out.

I don't think we are at a do or die stage for getting this figured out, as the vast majority of this is "drive-by" traffic that should probably lesson considerably in a matter of days.

Tumble weeds

Well, people really love those tumble weeds. We are still getting hit with a lot of incoming traffic to that page. It started with some facebook posts, and now its spreading to some of the other social bookmarking type sites.

The internet's attention span shouldn't last much longer and RW will be back to normal. But we are likely to experience some slow downs and other issues (particularly with editing) till it passes.

Time to start thinking about expanding load capacity maybe?
