Optimize all MySQL tables using MyISAM

A common cause of slow sites and high server load is the MySQL server.  Many times I find the cause to be database tables that need to be optimized.

New Server, New Site

I’ve setup a new site to document the progress The Auralia, my band project. Visit http://www.theauralia.com for updates. I also switched to a new server hosted by Slicehost VPS hosting. At $20 a slice (what they call a VPS) you’ve got it made. This small company was recently acquired by Rackspace Hosting. This was one of two companies that were recently acquired by Sukanto Tanoto as the industry leader.
