Just wanted to report that the forums are slow as molasses in winter this afternoon in the West Coast of the USA today.
It's taking anywhere from 5 to 20 seconds or more for a new page to download.
Only mentioning this because it was blindingly fast yesterday.
Not seeing this in Washington.
I'm in Seattle and not seeing any slowdowns. Are you seeing this with any other sites?
Interestingly enough, after I posted from the Admin account in Firefox, FF started going into a crawl and just about locked up. Yet I'm here in IE and still not seeing issues. So not sure what might be going on. I've had time to fire up IE, sign in, find the conversation, and post and FF is still trying to load the same page. FF won't even let me switch to other tabs. So I don't think it is a forum issue.
Yes, I am near Seattle also, using Firefox and seeing no problems when I have been on.
I'm at home now and things are very speedy.
Things are much improved now. In the afternoon I was seeing the slowdowns in Safari Mac, Ff Mac, Ff Windows and IE9 Windows. Other sites were fine.
Using FF/Mac. Have noticed no slowdown.
