As part of the housecleaning Phil mentioned, we're upgrading the processor and RAM on the BAUT server. We've scheduled this for Tuesday, August 22. I'm not sure the time yet, but I'll let you know. It's going to be a fairly invasive process because we need to upgrade the motherboard as well. The server will be down for a few hours, probably.
The server should be much faster then, and be very capable of handling both BAUT and media darling Phil Plait's Bad Astronomy.
