This site has become very slow!

The last few days I have noticed that it takes ten seconds or more for a page to open. This is just too long. Any idea what is happening?

I don't notice these delays anywhere other than here.

Re: This site has become very slow!

Same here. I wonder if it is traffic load from other "sites" hosted on the same server. Sometimes I sit down here, and it's not worth bothering with, so I leave.

Hunh, same here.

I thought Hawaii was having cable problems again. Apparently it's not just me.

No, it's universal. At least one error message from firefox said that it was having trouble accessing the database (it found the site just fine).

Bunch of slow problems, getting response errors when posting and having to re-post, and several times where the response got so slow I had to go outside and do actual work instead...

Ditto -- I'll test with this post...

...moderately slow today -- 10 seconds to post this (should be about 2 seconds). Recently I've had some that seem like a minute or so.

Re: This site has become very slow!

Considering the avatars, perhaps we've made things a little too top-heavy.

Re: This site has become very slow!

We are on the road and I briefly checked in yesterday. The site was so slow I didn't hang around--I thought it was my cell phone connection. Today it is speedy. I'll send Andy a message.

Absolutely crawling. I'm getting a quarter of a page at a time with 10 second to 2 minute delays between chunks. Almost unusable.
