  3. That would be "no".

  4. Ooh, I know the answer to this one:

  5. Yes, but it took me three tries to get into my dashboard. Quite unusual.

  6. It looks like there are intermittent problems affecting people in some locations. Possibly an issue at a major bandwidth provider. It's upstream from us so we can't really tell what's going on.

  7. I'll say it's horribly slow in South Korea (using Korea Telcom). Also seem to have trouble with loading stuff from

  8. I live in Belgium and I'm also having problems. De avatars indeed seem to cause the delay.

  9. Der blinkenlights at might help pass the time if accompanied by some thinking music.

    The problem does indeed seem to be affecting gravatar more than But both are up, the problem is a traffic problem somewhere on the internet.

  10. Thanks tellyworth. Appreciated. (Now to go watch the spinner spin)

  11. Barry rerouted the internet backwards through time, so with a bit of luck the situation should improve.

  12. LOL

    Please, just not far enough back that I have to use my 28K modem!

  13. Howdy. Just an update. We are experiencing some network issues upstream of one of the 3 data centers in which is hosted. The problem not only affects traffic between you and the servers, but also between one of the other datacenters and this one. In order for to work correctly, the datacenters need to be able to communicate with you as well as each other. As a result of this problem, we have routed traffic away from the 3rd facility. It looks like between 7-10% of the total traffic inbound to is being affected by this problem. So its a small %, but if you are in that group of people, its not fun. Believe me, I know, I am one of them.

    We are in the process of working with our network providers to either resolve our route around the issue in its entirety to restore full service. In the mean time, you may experience one or more of the following:

    1) Slow access to your blog or dashboard
    2) Gravatars loading slowly or not at all
    3) Problems with uploading files

    As soon as I have more information, I will post it here. Thanks in advance for your patience.

  14. The network issues have been resolved and everything should be back to normal.

  15. Everything is working smoothly again. Thank you.

  16. Ha! Two days ago I said there was a problem with one of the datacenters! I are so smart!

  17. @raincoaster you must be psychic.

  18. I am; all my friends call me psycho!

  19. Are the stats sections currently functioning properly? There are fresh comments coming in, but no new reported traffic over the last hour.

  20. My stats page hasn't updated for over an hour. Sitemeter shows continuing traffic but the stats page isn't reflecting it.

  21. I have not had any issues posting...but my stats have not updated all morning. Anyone else with this problem? Thanks!

  22. I am having stat problems as well.

  23. Glad to know that I am not alone!

  24. Report stats problems to staff via the Support button and continue the conversation about stats in the existing thread:
