Is anyone else getting slow connections? I mean slow like a teflon-coated snail crawling up a glacier at a 45-degree angle in a headwind.

Very slow this morning. Seems OK now.

FWIW, I was getting very slow download times on all sites this morning though, not just TFL.

Yes we are getting slow connections, it took almost ten minutes while ago to open the page, so long I took my shower and got dressed and Gunslinger still setting here for it to open, no wonder we don't get no where on time. LOL

I was connected at the same time you posted. I've been getting sub-second response time. Often the problem can be isolated to a particular region (West, Mid-west, Mid-Atlantic, FL, etc.) where the latency can be very long when it is short in another region. You can look at the weather report in a few hours (unless you want to subscribe and get real time reports) to see if this was the case.

Hrmph. I can connect to my usual sites (userfriendly.org, civilliberty.about.com, &c) with no problems. Just TFL that's giving me fits, and the traceroute shows a number of hiccups in alternet. None between me and the firewall.

Gads, I LOVE computers.

Yep. Trying to get to TFL from Florida is super slow -- some pages load only a quarter of the way and stop FOREVER. Not having a problem with other sites.

My computer is always slow I wouldn't know the difference. Besides it gives me time to wash a dish or two while loading. Happy happy joy joy.

Coin - the problem is obvious, your request spent way too much time in California and just sort of mellowed out until it got to Florida. But what I want to know is why did it spend some time at the NRA lobbyists desk at the Dept. of Agriculture?
