no, we didn't. as a matter of fact we've upgraded the server's RAM and lost a few (Latest Comments, thumbincluder) modifications with the update and our traffic capacity is still significantly down from what it was before the upgrade. this machine's (nearly) sole mission is our photopost install. I'm stumped and disappointed thus far. we're probably going to hire a consultant to look things over, but I wanted to check here first.
