Thanks!

No problem...

Looking forward to hearing from you.

BTW-- The right border on the table#okvir doesn't show up in Foxfire.

May need to put a border all the way around it.

border-left: 1px solid #ffffff;
border-right: 1px solid #ffffff;
border-bottom: 1px solid #ffffff;
border-top: 1px solid #ffffff;

I can't decide which broswer I like best right now.

Avant is in the lead, but I like firefire too!

The database is on the same server as part of my total disk quota. I have a Virtual Private Server with:

Guaranteed RAM: 256+
Max RAM: 8GB
Guaranteed CPU: 208.8+ Mhz 4
Max CPU: 2x3133.4Mhz

Before I upgraded, my shared server was faster! I feel they are not delivering what they promised, but I haven't figure out a way to prove it.

I added the page timer. I also added the Optimize Module and ran it and it seems to be faster now!

Thank you!

What about MySQL root access.

Is there anything to tune up there?

I don't know enough about the logs to know what I'd be looking at -- I'm a MS admin by trade .

The level3 support people tell me there is nothing going on. I had them turn on full logging and this is what the came up with:

I understand your problem but as I can see thevar/lib/mysql/server.advenquest.net.err you have restarted MySQL server too many times that day. It is possible that when your MySQL was down the M$ spider was digging you site and you got such result.

I was complaining because I was #1 on MSN for the term "Snow Skiing" on my site www.snow-skiing.com I’m back to # 1 without the "unable to connect to database..." error as the text on the page.

They then said they shut off auto restart on the mySQL? -- It didn't help.

On that monthly email subject - It would be nice to have access to all those xdirectory emails as part of a newsletter module to be able to email merchants about what is going on with the site etc...

A great way to generate traffic and awareness on the site with people who have a vested interest in it.

My site's newbb forum and AMS modules rank very well with some keywords on Google, Yahoo and MSN. I would like to tell everyone who has listed in xDirectory that little tidbit and how to use it to thier advantage. I would send info on how to write short articles, use forum posts and signature lines and give suggestions on how to write their Business description rich with keywords.

I currently send out a couple a week, but it would be nice to have a way to email everyone at once.
