Anyone else finding that the pages are taking a long time to load??

It was last night.  Today they seem fine, but last night (actually really early this morning, 2AM or so) they were loading so slowly I just gave up after a while.  I figured I'd just read instead, LOL.

ETA: Well, it seems that you originally wrote that about the same time I was having problems, so blush.

It was driving me crazy last night!!

At first I thought it was my laptop, or the Internet but after shutting the computer down a couple times and moving on to other sites I realized it was PBS. I ended up just getting off.

It may be a bit late to post, but... I was also having the same trouble. I guess I am glad that I was not the only one experiencing this problem. I wonder what caused it??

Considering the time and day of the week, I think there was probably some maintenance going on.  After all, they have to do it some time.  I generally do something else (if I can find any other sites) for a while until they are through.

I noticed a slowness both Saturday and Sunday evenings.

I notice it a few times a week, always between 2-4am EST. I'll be on the site posting books or something, and the page suddenly refuses to load and I can't get paperbackswap.com for half an hour or so. Very annoying! I figured it was maintenance, found your discussion while looking it up on these message boards. And of course it happened again while I was trying to post this! cheeky
