We made a ton of progress this Sunday during the peak times of 2 to 3pm MST, including no "brownouts" with the site. The Standings pages still load a little slower than during the week, but this is not uncommon for fantasy sites including ESPN and others.

The last piece of the puzzle to this was addressing a memory resource problem. When we switched hosting companys to our current host this year, I personally failed to realize the host's memory allocation for the package we selected was less than what we had last year (even though the cost was higher). The amount of memory allocated is still somewhat cryptic with the hosting company (Everleap), but given today's results I feel much more confident in the upgraded package (large reserve cloud) they have our site on. Just FYI we switched to Everleap because they have both a solid reputation, and hard-to-find expertise in sites such as ours.  My only disssaspointment is their tech guys not spotting the memory resource issue after Week 1, but ultmately they did solve the problem and were attentive to the issue.

Sorry for the inconvenience of Weeks 1 through 4.
