    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Due to your tremendous response our server was overwhelmed yesterday around 3pm. We are now upgrading our server and our site will be down until early this afternoon. We are reevaluating our needs and will have a faster, higher capacity server soon. We are taking orders over the phone. 972-636-2963 ask for Scott. Thanks for your patience.

    My experience has been that if you plan on getting in excess of 250,000 data requests / month (which is to say, 10k / day or thereabouts), that you need a dedicated server.

    I learned this hard truth after many years of .... well, it is a long story but today I host my sites (yes 2) on my own box, because today I believe it should be this way. The dedi I use runs me $100 / month and never a problem (well, almost never, but at least it's not the hosts issues when there is one, I think once in 4 years it was, maybe).
