Yep, I have followed the minutes, I was actually aiming to get down
there for the next meet, but doesn't look like I will make it, so I send
my apologies re that :\
I've cc'd the axxs-sysadmin list here, in this regard, just to keep
other sysadmins informed of these following issues :

I think there is just a lot of sites on the server atm, with large hits,
a lot of the Indymedia's.
We are in the process of getting really close to ordering a second
server, where the high traffic sites, and those not really needing the
end-user support Plesk provides them, will be moved off onto it. This
should massively improve the performance of the current box.
It's not you, there's a huge amount of traffic atm on axxs.org, and we
are flat out getting that sorted atm.
