Yep. Chef Cluster still sucks!
For the three readers who still access this page at http://sterlingnorth.livejournal.com or http://sterlingsnote.cjb.net, this is why performance has been sucking as of late. I have the misfortune of being on the Chef Cluster.
But they are getting it worked on, and I hope for the best.
Ottherwise, I'll have to go outside and play!
