Hi Gregg,

   Just went through a round of learning about performance on  
wordpress and I found YSlow! helpful in diagnosing issues.  After  
fixing a few things that were obvious after seeing yslow's results, I  
disabled unused plugins and updated others.  But the really big fix  
was to use W3TotalCache as it takes care of most of the common issues  
in an easy to install way...  When I was done, the client's site which  
in the beginning was taking 10+ seconds per click was down to <1s in  
most cases.
