A few db-heavy pages on the WWW2006 conference (which has now finished 
anyway) have been replaced by static copies of the same information. 
That helped quite a bit. is now going to stay at Blacknight Solutions 
(thanks Michele!). I am probably going to move 
there as well, as his service is rather more reliable than our own (but 
please don't tell our webmaster this, I don't think he would like it 
very much!).

The next time we have web server trouble here, I will move it all then. 
I already have some scripts which need updates and tweaks to them to 
upload everything to the new site, and switch the rsync to the other 
way, so that it uses Blacknight as the primary and ECS as the mirror for 
use in emergencies.
