We are aware that many of you have been suffering extremely slow load speed on our website. We are aware of the problem and have been working on this for several days now.

As we relaunch more and more sites in the new design, it is placing a bigger and bigger load on our servers. To accomodate this, we have been adding more servers to our bank, to try and keep things from slowing down too much. Part of this involved using a cache-ing system which was causing problems over the weekend (as many of you experienced, I'm sure.)

We have removed the cache-ing software from all but one of the servers, so that the third-party engineers from the cache-ing software company can trouble shoot. As a result, things our now faster, but you may still experience a slow down from time to time. We are also adding more servers right now.

We thank you for your patience during this period, and we are continuing to get the system dialed-in.
