    It's about 12pm est right now and the forums are running REALLY slowly. It takes several seconds up to half a minute to load any single page.

    There's about 3k users "online" right now. over 2.5k of which are "guests." An attack? or just crawlers slowing down the forum?

    [edit]
    N/m. As soon as I posted this. things started moving again...

    It's slow for me too (no avatars has sped it up). My guess is 2.5k guest iPhoners beating up the server :D. Be interesting to see how high users go as we near the end of the week.

    With the iPhone launch all previous records will be beaten! Don't doubt it.

    The forums are crawling for me, too. I'd imagine it's from the increased traffic for the iPhone. (well, obviously)

    arn must better have a contingency plan for the well-being of MR, if the forums are crawling now, I don't even want to think on Friday. *Sigh* it is not even this way in MacWorld or WWDC...

    Occasionally it speeds up but it does tend to crawl a bit...

    Seems quite speedy at the moment, but it just gave me a database error a few minutes ago...

    Happy iDay Everyone!!

    WIth all the hype, I think some forum problems are to be expected throughout the weekend. Wait until all the people are uploading unpacking pics and reviews later today.

    Yup, it is slowwwwwww.

    There's over 5,500 people online right now, and Forum Spy refuses to work (server too busy).

    True...'normal' is a very relative statement round these parts. :p

    I must say that I'm surprised that avatars and other non-essential stuff is still being used at the moment.
