After going around and around with POWWEB about the slow response of my website, I finally decided to move to a different host. Here I am at Lunarpages and the speed is blazingly fast. The acid test will be if the site is still this fast during normal business hours tomorrow.
The downside is that I still have some configuration issues to overcome, hence no pictures on the site right now. But I expect to get those kinks worked out over the next day or so. Everything else appears to be operating as per normal.
