thanks for the very helpful information so far. i'm actually just using
lowly access. i am not having problems with any overloading or crashing
or anything like that. the traffic on the site is definitely manageable
by the server so far. i will however look into your suggestion for
pagefaults with Performance Monitor tool. that should be interesting.

i was asking more out of curiosity and because i'm probably a little bit
of an OCD kind of person.

i.e. i can't stand it when i see this...

if thisvariable >0 then
  do this 'here is a comment.
end if

i will change it to this...
If(thisVariable > 0) Then
'*** Here is a comment.
	do this
End If

i'm just cool like that i guess. ;)

again, thanks for the info.
