HG staff suggested that the VPS account that I am running with is 
underpowered.  I was at the point of upgrading anyway, so this is not 
horrible news, but I am wondering whether the next level will be

Level 3 (now): CPU 1.13GHZ / RAM: 768MB
Level 4: CPU 1.98GHZ / RAM: 1344MB

Level 5: CPU 2.68GHZ / RAM: 1824MB
