I had posted elsewhere stating that it was indeed better, but have been forced by the last 5 minutes of frustration to retract that statement.
8:00 AM this morning and the lag kicked in . I watched the screen for 3 minutes waiting for the page to load. That is a 50% improvement and at least so far the server did not drop the page. Response times seem a little better also . I think we should give this server enough time to get tied up on one of our busy days to give it a final assesment.
Today it is clearly faster for me. I am on dial up, so pages normally load a little slower for me. Normally this forum is real slow and I get timed out messages on pages. Sometimes I get frustrated and just don't even bother to reply to a topic. Today it is noticeably faster. I click it and it comes up-- like being back on cable.
