We know all the recent server lag has been quite frustrating(and it's even more frustrating for us!)
We've spent most of the past couple days trying to track down the cause, however we are also concerned that perhaps our server provider has decreased in quality, or may be throttling us.
We're going to do some experiments to find out for sure whether that is the case, and if it is we will switch providers of course.
So far it seems it may be the server providers fault, which would be very disappointing if so. We are still testing though.
In the meantime, there may be a lot of downtime while we do maintenance. Thank you for your understanding and patience - remember, this is extremely frustrating for us as well!
We are doing our best to get to the bottom of this. We hope you had a good Christmas and have a good new year as well!
