Regular visitors to this site (if there are any left) may have noticed that, in the last couple of months, it was frequently excruciatingly slow to load. I noticed it, and had an initially fruitless email dialogue with my hosting service. When they realized ignoring me wouldn’t work, they committed the tactical error of telling me they needed more specific information. When I responded to that by bombarding them with response statistics gathered at 5-minute intervals over several days, they surrendered and added more RAM to the server. Now performance is back to a level that makes FreeBSD look as good as I keep saying it is.
