I have implemented website caching, which is where the webserver keeps a copy of a page you've loaded & gives you the same copy (more or less) when you (or somebody else) loads the same page.
This should vastly accelerate the website; perhaps as much as 4 times or more. However, since this is new code, it may be buggy. Be on the lookout for cases where you might upload something but not see it show up on the "Latest Uploads" column, or if you post a blog response and it doesn't show up.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you find any problems.
FYI: Only the following pages are cached: the Home page, the "Latest Uploads" column, and the various uploaded pages (blogs pages, bios pages, music pages, etc...)
