I get the occasional delay but it's (at the moment) MUCH better. I always got delays before anyway so it could be pretty much back to normal for me.

Nope, still happening, just maybe about half the time. I still get timeouts.

Something funny happens for me. I can't go back to the forum I was in after reading a post, but if I click the physicsforums.com link, it takes me back pretty quick like normal. I'm not really sure what this means...

Delays for me couple of seconds or better.

Edit: Currently normal speeds appears to be back. (8:09 UTC)

Meanwhile it looks from here that all is normal. Maybe the attackers are asleep?

PF loads in about 1 to 3 minutes for me if it loads at all. Normally only takes a few seconds. Been this way now for the past 48 hours.

Where's Char....

He'd kick some Ninja butt......

Sorry about that. I've been too busy kicking IRL butt to kick online butt.

This is a test, lets see how it goes

edit: Not greased lightning, but MUCH better, maybe even back to normal.

edit 2: MUCH faster, but I think you're still losing some packets.

It's a lot better for me! Although the forum doesn't load in about 5% of the times. But the speed is almost back to normal!

OK, definitely just packet-loss then.

Yes, it's going in waves. 15 minutes ago it was very fast. Now it goes slow again...

It's fast, you just need to click a few times if it's slow the first couple of times. Packet loss = even if the overall speed is good, sometimes your "signals" are not getting through; they're being dropped.
