    There are supposedly ways of doing both ie. caching static and allowing dynamic content, though I never tried it

    I looked into it, but it wasn't trivial and I never found the free time to explore further.

    I think there's a certain cultural aspect to the online community which results in people reaching for the submit button instead of the telephone these days, and it's a pity... sometimes there's no ill intent, it's just become the norm to blog or post about it instead of pick up the phone and talk to someone, which is crazy.

    I'm interested in the whole WP resource hog aspect though - I know it can be, but was your account just switched off with no proper contact to you? That's also insane. Are you running wp-cache or super-cache?

    Which is why I'd recommend you to look at MovableType instead. You can get onto the frontpage of Digg and the server won't even flinch :)

    Some people seem to think that whinging in public about everything is a valid means of communication and then seem "amazed" when they lose all respect from their peers

    Indeed. Publication vs communication seems to be a distinction lost on many of those involved in Web2.0.

    Wordpress no cache?

    So wordpress has no caching option by default? I couldn't see one. Do you need a plugin?

    I know Drupal and Joomla have one, so I'd be surprised if Wordpress didn't, but then again.

    Nop, you need a plugin.
  10. Yeah the plugin is called 'wp-cache'
    I didn't know about it either until blacknight suggested it.
    It was pretty painless to install really.
  11. And while I'm here...
    You'd think a hosting provider could come up with something a bit more discrete than:
    Just send it in an email, the whole world doesn't need to know.
    Fake "This site is currently down for maintenance" errors for the win.
