Okay I have read some of the other topics here on slow performing sites. And I don't think I'm having the same problem. My main page seems to load fairly quicky I know I have some issues with optimizing the embeded flash video but I don't think that's the issue, or at least the main one--and I'm working on that. And I don't think it's any funky plugins that I'm using--because I'm not using much of anything more than what comes standard. Anyway anytime I request an archived page, or anything beyond the scope of the front page it takes forever to load. Which makes me think that it's a database issue. Am I bumping up against the limits of what Dreamhost can handle on a shared hosting plan? I've been bruning up a lot of bandwidth lately, over 10 gigs a day (seems like a lot to me anyway) but that's mostly just requests for static .mov files on the RSS feed. I dunno, I upgraded to 2.01 thinking that might help but no dice. Anyone have any idears?? Oh and comments seem to load really slow too.
