Default Why so slow lately?

The slowdown can last for an hour or all day. Server work going on? It's been bad lately.

They slowed things down because some people can't read that fast

The mice that run on the BBF Wheel Of Speed have gone on strike.

Seriously, Guess is looking into the slowness and we hope to have things back up to speed soon.

Thanks for your patience.

It's cause of your new BlackBerry Rambo. We can't keep up with 3G speeds.

There are backups inconveniently trying to run at the same time a major article was posted on Engadget with a link following to BBnews.

I am looking into a cluster of servers for the future and hope to implement by the end of the month.

If you go with a cluster, may I suggest something by Thinking Machines, or perhaps Cray?

There was a period today where it acted like the page didn't even exist.
