I'm digested on this list, and read it off line, so forgive the late 

Somehow I don't think we'd have THAT many cross over customers, but I'll 
see what I can do... maybe after fishing all day, they can apologize to 
their wives by buying jewelry?!?

Do you serve the graphics from another AS/400 or another instance?

FYI our server is the kick butt 270 - that system SMOKES!!!

Thanks - it looks like me (you know, black, blue and purple!  Marketing 
people are so hard to please!)

I don't do the "look & feel" I'm just the plumber - (and only one of them!) 
 It's best to have people that do that, and leave them alone.  They're 
happier that way.

We're loading in under 30 seconds with a dial up, but most of that is 
graphics, not site lag.  14,000 visits a day translates into roughly 
270,000 hits to the server a day - roughly.  Remember - a graphic is a hit. 
 One thing we're doing over the next 3 weeks is translating most of the 
"graphics text" into style sheets, and standard html.  It loads WAY 
quicker, and doesn't spawn another graphic load.  Almost all of our 
graphics is served from a company known as AKAMI - they serve for CNN, and 
other companies.  Since they have off loaded the most of the traffic, the 
AS/400 screams out the pages.  As for it being proprietary info - probably 
is.  As an aside the system hasn't been IPL'd since november 17th - we've 
got another 20 years before we need to do that.

A CGI program builds the frames, then hands off stuff to a Net.Data Macro 
(The content) and hands back and forth from CGI to Net.Data.  Once we start 
rocking, NetData is doing a lot of the work, but whenever you see prices on 
a page that looks static, but contains pricing info, that's an RPG CGI 
program.  We're serving several different companies so it looks differently 
depending how you approach the site.  One RPG program reads environmental 
variable and tells the site how to fire up ie what graphics to use, what 
prices, what logos etc... http://www.spiegel.palmbeachjewelry.com is 
 another example if you want to take a look.  Remember to end browser, and 
start it up again before proceeding.  http://www.palmbeachjewelry.com is 
the base site for comparison.
