If you’ve come here recently and experienced extreme slowness, gotten messages about critical WordPress errors or seen anything else that pretty well screams oof, that’s broken, yeah, we know about it. but just like a few years ago when similar things were happening, there’s not a lot we can do. Like then, these appear to be issues on the hosting level. Back then it took them performing upgrades to a bunch of machines to finally put things right. Hopefully things are simpler than that this time, but who knows. Anyway, if you do happen to get an error when you visit here, just refresh the page until it goes away. Irritating, but effective.
These issues are also extending to email. There have been delays for over a week now, and judging from the updates that have been coming and going on our host’s status page, they’ve been a struggle to sort out. So if you’ve sent something that would normally get a reply, hold on, send elsewhere if you know how or try sending to the Comet emails again. And if your problem is comment notifications gone missing, just check the site now and then assuming you can frigging get there.
