*moves thread*
I've not noticed any slowdowns lately, are you sure it isn't your internet connection?

You've got to remember that there are almost 200,000 registered users on this site. There is normally almost 1000 of these online, and then there's about 5 times that many "Guests"

Its fine for me... I'm on a 10Mbps connection so i'd notice a slowdown if it were the server's fault.

Not sure what to tell ya man.. Its been fine here no issues what so ever. Do a traceroute to the domain one and post the results. When you cant access the forums can you access ubuntu.com?

Yep it is your provider not ubuntu.

Clicked on ubuntuforums.org and left for lunch came back 2hrs later and still trying to load the page...
