Database Update

OK, we have finally tracked down the part we need to install our new, high-powered database.

RateItAll's hosting company says it was like "trying to find a crankshaft for a 2005
Lamborghini Gallardo." Not really sure what that means, but as we like our hosting company, we'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

Once installed, this database will provide us with eight times the processing power as our existing one. This doesn't necessarily mean the site will be eight times as a fast, but there should be a noticeable improvement.

We will be installing this thing Tuesday evening / Wednesday morning at 1AM EST. Please expect several hours of downtime.
