I don't know what the problem is.  I haven't been able to figure out how
to profile the machine.  I know that some of the time I have some PHP
stuff (accept I don't know if it is the PHP or the mysql behind it) that
is causing slowness when in use, and I don't know if they are having
trouble because of low memory or low CPU power.  I didn't write any of
the PHP programs myself.  

Currently it is running with a load of 0.49.  High culprits are httpd,
sshd, imapd, and python.

On a side note, I'm not sure why a load of that sort would cause mail
trouble anyway.  All I know is that sometimes emails don't show up for
hours, or sometimes a day (but not usually).

I did get the ORA postfix book, but am still trying to find the time to
go through it thoroughly.  

And I haven't had much time to try to deal with things on jdboyd.net anyway.
