I mailed VenturesOnline about the speed of the site slowing down quite a bit the last few days. It turns out they have a few too many websites hosted on the server ChiefDelphi.com sits on.
Here's what they had to say about it:
we our working on a plan to move accounts off of liberty and potentially upgrade the cpu's on it which will improve the load spikes dramatically. In the meantime you might find the server a little sluggish.

So, it should get better soon, I believe them when they say they are working on it. (Their support department is excellent.)
Just wanted to let you all know.
