I know there has been a lot more activity around here with the introduction of the iPad, the speculation of a MBP refresh and the anticipation of 4.0 for the iPhone

Perhaps the servers are just feeling the load

Same. I'm new to this site but it definitely loads more slowly than most of the sites I visit.

I agree that it has been loading slower than usual but it seems to be coming back to normal over the last two or three days. I was even getting time outs when loading the page fairly constantly before.

the forums have been under load (forums.macrumors.com) and we've been taking steps to fix that.

The front page, however, (www.macrumors.com) shouldn't be slow. I visit it myself daily and haven't noticed a drop off.

anyone else?

Everything seems fine to me. I haven't noticed any problems for a long time (since the last time we had problems several months ago).

Safari won't even let me load the front page, giving the message the page isn't where it's responding.
Interestingly, I can get to it through Hotspot (what I'm doing now) and it loads fine...

In Sydney Australia if it helps

EDIT: can't even load the forums without it :/

The forums frequently go down for me too. Probably a few times every day I'd say. Might be like 15-30 seconds before it comes back again and then it's snappy.

I don't know what just happened, but this is weird!

The screen cap didn't upload, but when viewing Forum Spy, it suddenly showed:
