Site Slowness?
« on: April 30, 2012, 03:04:36 PM »
I was wondering if the site is being slow for anyone else today, or is it just my computer? It was fine this morning, and I still get intermittent connectivity, but mostly it's pretty slow to load a page. A couple of times it timed out on me. Other websites seem to load okay. Anyone else getting this?

I'm glad to see it's not just me.  It's getting really frustrating.  Also keeps giving me a "cannot connect" error message.

It's not just you  :(.  I wrote a bit about it in the Glitches board (in the Crossover thread) this morning, and it's gotten worse since then.  Hopfully it won't last long and will be back to normal soon.

This is my second attempt to answer you.  It timed out the first time.

Yep-me too.  It started yesterday sometime, but has been really bad today.

Please add me to the list for whom the site is excruciatingly slow.  :-/

Me too, though it is noticeably better on my computer than on my iPod or iPhone - can't get pages to load at all on those, sometimes.  Other websites are working fine.

Me too, wasn't sure if it was my connection or not so I'm glad I'm not the only one!
