I may have fixed the performance issues. If you experience slow performance, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you, kind readers, for assisting me in the performance feedback. The site seems pathetically slow and that is NOT my style. 🙂 It seems as though it is a Apache/XP problem. I am currently transferring the domain over to a different system and should be “switched” by 10:00 PM.
I made a few more adjustments to see if I can narrow down the cause of "slight delay," many times several seconds, while attempting access to the domain. If you experience slow performance, please let me know. It would be greatly appreciated.
At approximately 10:30 PM, the power was restored and the domain became active again. I am still tweaking www.blackviper.com to find the right configuration for the server. Some connectivity issues may result, but if you have nothing better to do, I would like to hear about your experience.
Upon further investigation (why www.blkviper.com is down), my previous ISP’s whole city lost power @ approximately 3:00 PM. All of the UPS did not make it for as long as the power has been off. Service was going to be restored by the local Power Co @ 6:00 PM, but that has not happened as of yet.

Updated the Ask BV (FAQ) page with additional firewall configuration information pertaining to "SVCHOST.EXE": What is "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services?!?"
Even though it has not happened yet, I have included on my Ask BV (FAQ) page the answer to this question: Why can’t I view any images on your domain?
It is because I block all clients from accessing my images without proper “referer” (sic) information being transmitted to the server. This “referer” (sic) information is logged to find out “where you came from.” It helps figure out the bad links people are sending my way. It helps to discover what people are “searching for” when they click on in, and it identifies theft of bandwidth. Why do I do this? It is to avoid other sites stealing my images and my bandwidth by “inlining” images on their domains. Of [Continue Reading]
It looks as though, at approximately 6:00 AM, the first www.blackviper.com traffic began to access the local network. One small leap for the Internet. One big leap for BV!
