I spoke with Arn today. He said that the server was upgraded to a new Xeon system. So this may explain why MR is much snappier. I asked about why he didn't choose an xserve, but it was like a dead wall.

I think that's hilarious, running Mac Rumors on a Xeon box....

That might explain the errors and slowness all on it's own :rolleyes:
Damn! You beat me to it! C'mon guys, why not get some XSERVES goin' on?

But it sped up when the Xeon boxes were put in. Don't bash it cause you don't understand it.

Maybe the xeon box is a sponsor donation?
