ISP hell: Sorry that this

ISP hell
: Sorry that this site has been as slow as crude in Alaska this morning. When I get hit with traffic (and not a great deal, I might add), the server sometimes crawls to a near-halt and doesn’t snap out of it for hours. I am not serving any video from my server; I killed the photos from this page to reduce bandwidth. Any of you experts out there able to offer me any advice on how to deal with my host?
