You may have noticed that the site is serving a lot faster recently. On Jan 23rd 2015 I migrated the site from my old server to my new server. The old server was an old HP Proliant ML350 with two (2) Intel (R) XEON(TM) 3.4Ghz processors with 2 cores each (2mb cache), 2 GB of DDR2 400mhz ram. The new machine is a virtual which has five (5) Intel(R) Xeon(R) 2.67Ghz processor cores (20mb cache) and 8 GB of DDR3 1333mhz.
Initially I threw more processors and less RAM at it, but after playing around with it for the last few days I've lowered the processors and upped the RAM. So far I'm quite happy with how its worked out.
