Socon or Bust having technical problems

Greetings everyone,

As you might have gathered by now, we’re experiencing long load times on our blog.

I’ve been on the WordPress forums and the problem is high CPU usage on my account, which apparently is pretty common in WordPress, and no one seems to know how to fix it.  Some solutions work, but most people have tried them all and nothing seems to work.
I have done the following:
1) Uploaded and enabled the following plugins which are supposed to decrease the CPU Usage:  WP-reCAPTCHA and WP Super Cache
2) Disabled all unnecessary Plugins
3) Configured WP-Cron to only request updates every 2 hours (instead of every time a page loads)
4) Optimiizing database

If anyone in cyberspace can help me out here, I would greatly appreciate it.  Email me at
