It serves more like it's hooked up to a dialup modem rather than a cable

a 486DX-2/66 (kidding)... I do think it is too slow to be a good site to use
to sell a client on IB. It could be the cable modem, since their bandwidth
drops off as traffic increases. For a proof-of-concept via a site like this

I am working on an intranet app for a real-estate leasing office and am
planning to use IB6 with the IB5.6 ODBC driver or the custom tags for
ColdFusion posted on the site under Articles (haven't decided

The Matlus Site ( ) has been using IB6 since it was
first in beta. The whole site is dynamically served using IB6, Delphi ( for
the ISAPIs ) and runs on Windows 2000 attached to a cable modem. I believe
Shiv Kumar ( the site owner ) is also planning to port the site over to
Apache on Linux when Kylix comes out. Use IE for best results. Have a look
at the site statistics ( also dynamically servered ) to see if it handles
any loads you would call "production".

Hope this helps in some way.
