I just installed mongrel using "gem install mongrel
--include-dependencies", and it installed.  However, the page load times
are now reporting to take almost twice as long, according to the server

Any idea what could cause that?

Never seen that behavior before.  They seem almost equal on my systems.
Mongrel might be a slight bit slower, but it's much more performant.

 Are you running in development mode or production mode?

Development mode... I guess that could obscure its advantages a bit,
especially when just looking at the occasional request here or there.
I'm not going to worry about it too much for the moment, I guess.

Yeah, I wouldn't.  But don't rely on the logs too much for timings...
grab a
mac or a linux box and use httperf to test your sites. It's more

I spend a lot of time developing and deploying on Windows, so if you run
into any other problems, let me know; I like to help.
