After several days(weeks?) of repeated site issues I think we might have a handle on the stability issue plaguing the blog.
Over the past 24 hours I upgraded the web hosting plan and added a site caching plugin to the back end software to reduce the number of database queries which I concluded were overwhelming the server. Over the past few hours I have noted faster load times in general and the absence of blank pages, timeouts and error pages. Obviously this is not a high traffic time so we will need to keep monitoring the site to ensure it continues to perform reasonably well. I imagine if the Big Three announce their return we will find out then.
Please offer comments below on whether the performance of the site has improved or not. If you see issues with the site please do not hesitate to email me at support -at- tarheelfanblog.com. Replace the -at- with the standard @ symbol for emails.
Thanks for your patience.
