As I'm sure most of you have experienced in the last week or so - the server has been having some problems.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm doing everything in my power to get it fixed.
The main problem was an xml sitemap script that was running (to generate google sitemaps for better search engine ranking). Once I removed that - things got much better.
But - there are still a couple of issues i'm dealing with alongside the server administrators. Hopefully we get it all sorted out soon.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
