This is about the only site on the net that works today.
« on: April 04, 2019, 11:09:34 PM »
I had Internet slowdowns all day yesterday. Last night I could get hardly any site to work, except this one, which was lightning fast. I got up this morning hoping to get some research done, but everything was just as bad, except this site. Lightning fast.

In the past hour Google and Yahoo News are up, but clicking on a story goes nowhere. Google search is now working well, but clicking a link is useless.

Amazon is about 100 times as slow as normal, with pages corrupted. Since the whole world uses Amazon Web Services (except apparently Tim), I'm blaming Amazon.

I didn't have any problems with any site I visited yesterday and no problems so far today either.

I don't use Google, though, so I don't know about it, but other sites have been fine.

For me as well.

Which makes me think its an outage for a specific region.

Texas.

Last night I couldn't get on any site, so I thought it was my ISP, but email and VOIP still worked. I tried another browser. Same thing, sometimes slow (and by slow I'm talking go to lunch and come back waiting on a page slow), sometimes nothing.

Over the past hour some sites started working, and now all seems back to normal.

Odd. Could have been a hardware problem local to you, and for some reason, the route to the forum went a different way to most else.

Strange things do happen.

It's a conspiracy. Timothy is slowing down the entire internet except here to drive traffic to this site.
