Every page opens in 10-30 seconds. I have 166 ms pings, so it is unlikely that the problem is on my side. Plus, at least once so far I have seen "MySQL server has gone away" error.

Ditto for the slowness, but getting these errors:

Warning: array_slice() expects parameter 1 to be array, null given in [path]/includes/class_postbit.php(265) : eval()'d code on line 17

Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in [path]/includes/class_postbit.php(265) : eval()'d code on line 18

Currently not only slow but keep getting messages about failing to connect to www.physicsforums.com at all. Also, PF chat has just dropped me and I can't get back in.

Maybe char can set up a youtube social? We can chat there for a while until PF is fully recovered. And we get to listen to cool music (:

It takes several minutes to load a page now, if it works at all. I'm also seeing different fonts than usual, and no background color. (It's white instead of the usual blueish gray).
