The problem is not the hardware from what Marc & I can tell - the
current hardware (a dual PIII with 4GB) is just ticking along with
little load, and the current website performs quite nicely. What we seem
to have is a php performance issue that we haven't tracked down yet
which only noticably affects the beta site. Yes, we can throw more
hardware at it if it really comes down to it (I can also rustle
something pretty nippy up), but it makes more sense to figure out why
we're having this problem in the first place.

Your offer is noted and appreciated though :-)

Regards, Dave
