Problem loading. Takes longer than the last couple of days. No error pages though.

Both the web server and the SQL database are thread based and sometimes one of the cores hits a load of 100%. If the thread that is being used for displaying your page or querying the database, runs on that core, it is stalled for a number of seconds.
Normally all cores are operating at a low percentage and at the moment I’m still not sure what is causing the high load every so many seconds on one of the cores. It appears to be related to the web server and not SQL. So it could be a PHP script doing something flaky.

And me that was thinking it was my internet connection.

Going by the description, it is probably a server side script. Too bad doing thread dump in php isn't that simple, that would make it easier to find the guilty party.

I usually get the slowdown when posting a new post, if that is of any use.

Very slow today around 12:55 GMT.

20 - 30 second load times, just in before a timeout, I'd say.

Really bad in general the last day or two. Just took me 45-60 seconds to load the last page of this thread. At 17:17 CDT in the US.

Same here, loading the main or a news item takes quite a while. It has been like this for few weeks for me now.

ditto. I kept thinking it was glitched when I saw titles instead of images - then it finished rendering.

At least there's no ad banner taking up the right third of the page.

Happens to me all day as I said before eventually the webpage will load then give me a blank page. After that I need to wait five minutes to visit the webpage to load it properly.

Wonder if Add Blockers are the reason sometimes?
