in reply to PerlMonks is *slow*. What do we need to fix?

What PerlMonks really needs is updates to its code. If you're willing to lend a hand to pmdev, that would be your best bet.

Turn off nodelets and monk quips/images. Your pages will load faster because you are requesting less from the server.

    Really? I saw a few conflicting points on that, but I would not doubt you as sites like this often have organic and messy code bases. I would be glad to help, I didn't see any join pmdev information tho, where is it?

    As far as hardware goes, if some were donated would PAIR allow installation? What hardware is in use now? Is there some documentation about this around?

    I did disable my nodelets, which helps a little bit but not much.

    I am seriously honest when I say I would contribute and use this site more often if it were not so infuriatingly slow. BTW, this is not criticism, it's an observation and I am willing to help (aka not just complain).

      That's wonderful to hear. I don't have much time or know-how to really work on a site this large, so I would feel very hypocritical if I complained about the speed.

      I think it is wonderful that you are willing to help. If you contact the pmdev or gods groups, they would be able to tell you about how to help.

      That isn't necessary. We (pair) are already donating all of the hardware and bandwidth that perlmonks is using for free. Presently that includes three of our quickserve dedicated servers. We've also indicated to vroom that we'd gladly add another server if he thought it would make a difference. But right now, I think the plan is to try to improve the code a bit. You can only throw so much hardware at a problem before it doesn't make much of a difference any more. :)
