I would estimate the number of comments at around 2 or 3 thousand. The box its running on is fairly new, a dual PIII700 with 512MB RAM, using the default RPM MySQL installation. I used the "--big-tables" option to start MySQL as suggested in the above link, and that fixed it without any noticeable decrease in site performance. Is there a better solution?"
