    Since I moved the site to a shared host, I would like to know if it is fast enough. Please visit the site and let me know if it is too slow. Also please check the news link, as it is using a MySQL database, and I need to see if the database is fast enough. Please let me know if you experiance any downtime or server lag. Please post your connection speed as well.

    Thanks!

    Everything's very quick except the "Sales & Stats" page, which is extremely slow.

    The sales and stats page is slow by nature. The script has to download eight DVD product pages from amazon.com, and then process that content. That takes a little while, but I am going to try to set up a cron job, to make the script run once an hour, and then save the results to a static page. Once I get it set up, it should load in seconds, just like the rest of the site.

    That's what I figured, Joshua.

    Once you get the cron job working, it'll be great.
