I've been on the VS bandwagon for a while now, but have been plagued with performance issues since the very beginning.

What's Jayson Been Up To?
I feel like I'm writing more and more of these types of posts lately, but the past couple of weeks (actually months) have been a whirlwind of changes and whatnot (as no doubt regular readers will attest to).
