    Hmmm … so we share the same political viewpoint, eh? Why am I not surprised? ;)

    On pages that are slow to udpate (i.e. my blog and these forums) my browser has a little eye with a red line underneath it. When I click on it, it says “Privacy Report, Some cookies were restricted or blocked”. So maybe it is my browser???

    My header also decides to not show up some times.

    Nah, I think it’s an issue with the servers. Cookies wouldn’t be affecting speed.

    Unless they’re coming from a server not found.

    Hmmm…

    Slow today, too. Maybe we need bigger tubes for the Internets.

    Agreed, slow today on and off. Sometimes it’s greased lightning, sometimes it’s red X ville and slow as a tranquillized slug.

    GOB knows what’s going on in the backend these last two or three weeks but if you haven’t taken up knitting in between clicking “save” or “publish” and waiting for results you could consider it. Knitting is a stress reducer. *lol* ;)

    wordpress.com and my sites on it have been uploading really slowly for a few weeks now. i initially thought that it was my isp. i’ve checked with speedtest and other sites like google and yahoo – and they load just fine. is it just me this time around?

    It’s not you. I have a habit of publishing a post, then immediately going to the Dashboard to click through to it via Most Recently Updated. It’s posting so slowly nowadays that it’s impossible to do that, so as I hit Publish I also open the dashboard in a new window; that’s the only way to get to the dashboard during the short window of time the new post is displayed there.

    Word Press has aways been slow for me, on every computer I use it on. Not viewing the blog, but posting and managing. If it werent such a good, well organized program I would have left the first couple of days.

    hmmm … that’s fascinating. I live on the Canadian west coast and I have a high speed connection. WordPress has always been quick for me, almost instantaneous in fact. Blogger was so slow I almost tore my hair out waiting, waiting and waiting …

    Its been reversed for me, blogger is fast and wordpress is slow.

    What I like about wordpress is the organization and search ability of the tags and categories.

    Blogger gave more by way of appearnce and tweekabilty of the blog, but function before fashion I always say.

    Security too. :)

    Might help us help you if you told us more about your setup else all we can do is guess. Backend timeout issues are usually becuase of security settings with one’s browser since it’s a secure connection.

    A quick tracert to your IP address shows a rather long repsonse time for the router right above the box you dial into to but I don’t think that would be an issue here since yo umention that you don’t have timeout issues elsewhere.

    WordPress seems exceptionally slow at all operations today. Running Win XP with Firefox 2.0 on DSL, and everything I do is taking a long time: searching for a post, updating, entering, even waiting for the search here in the forums. Really, really slow. Perhaps as the day warms up, it will go faster. Hope so.

    Just poking my nose in… things have been slow for me as well throughout the morning. Perhaps there’s some maintenance going on we don’t know about? :)

    Have things picked up for anyone else, or are you all still experiencing slow load times and missing images/avatars?

    S-L-O-W, plus every 2 mins I get the ‘Server Maintenance’ page and none of my commands to delete posts work. They come back from the dead!

    Server Maintenance

    Your server is going through a few minutes of routine maintenance. Please don’t touch your browser for a few minutes.

    What do I do?

    * If you were posting a comment or making a post on your blog then do not press BACK on your browser. Wait 5 minutes and press the refresh icon on your browser. Your comment or post will be sent as normal.
    * If you are browsing a blog here just wait a few moments and hit refresh. The page you were expecting will appear.

    Please do not hit the BACK button on your browser!

    P>S> As you have observed deleting posts is not possible while this is going on.

    Don’t we have enough threads covering this already?
