comment If I have a page that gets a lot of StumbleUpon traffic, will that traffic fall if I move it?
It's funny, I never submitted that page in particular to StumbleUpon, it just seemed sucked into SU sometime maybe 7 years ago. Trying it with a lower trafficked page is a good idea.

comment When did you decide to use a CDN? How did you measure the “success” of using a CDN?
Thanks Tim! I almost cheaped out and only offered +50, but I thought, hey, make it fun! I love stories about optimizations that improve scalability (and the horrors that force those optimizations). highscalability.com is a favorite site of mine.

comment My shared-host tells me that they're throttling my website because of MySQL, what can I do?
No, I'm on pair.com and have no such problems. The latest would-be client with this problem is on Bluehost.

Do you have any sense of minimum MySQL configurations for a shared host that would cover general web applications (e.g.: Drupal, Joomla, WordPress, phpBB, etc.).
