Sorry about that!

The blog was down for over 12 hours.

Sorry about that.

I still don’t know what the problem is.

It seems there may be a site out there which is constantly drawing on the server… not in a malicious way, I think, but with some sort of open link.


Check, please the speed of the blog loading.

    The site loads as quickly as it normally does on IE.

    Working fine on iPhone.

    Dear Fr Z. It has been very slow for about a fortnight. The page takes a good 30 seconds to load in Safari, even when other sites, with heavier pages, are loading normally.

    Just tried to load this comment, and got a “You are loading relies to quickly, slow down” message!

  4. FrCharles says:

    Loading at least as fast as usual on Firefox 3.5.3. Good to have you back!

  5. JohnMa says:

    Loading like normal in Chrome.

    Site’s working fine for me in Chrome. For a split second last night I feared the banhammer. Glad it wasn’t something I said.

  7. Jordanes says:

    It was loading fine this morning. Just a few minutes ago it was giving me only a white screen, but I tried again and after a few seconds’ pause it loading successfully. I’ve got IE7 on this computer.

  8. Jaybirdnbham says:

    Loaded quickly just now, with Firefox.

    Using MacBook and the latest Safari, everything is fine. BUT on my iPhone 3G, with latest update, when I click on an item in recent posts say, it opens a new window, but it just goes back to the home window… Suggestions?

  10. Mike says:

    Doing fine with Windows XP and Fios…

  11. I am finding that the blog is loading a lot faster.


    Any difference?

    A few hours ago, it wasn’t loading even on my iPhone but now it’s back to normal and at normal speed.

    However on my PC (IE–8.0.6), the wdtprs blog is the only site that will load but not allow me to navigate at all. It prompts me with an error message to Debug, etc. But debugging never works and ends in a cycle of the same error message. Not even completely turning the PC completely off does any good. Very frustrating. PC’s about 4-5 yrs old — on its way out….probs are most likely my own computer but I’d welcome some hints…

    Might be something funky with the javascript – does the error message mention where the error is located?

  14. TKS says:

    Mac OS X 10.4.11 w/Firefox. It’s been super slow loading for a long time but is fine today.

  15. q7swallows says:

    One of you good clerics must have performed an exorcism on my PC because it is once again loading the wdtprs page AND allowing me to navigate and comment! Deo gratias!

    It’s loading normally now, but late last week was taking forever, even on the fast computers at school. Glad it’s fixed.

    I got ‘You are posting comments too quickly-slow down’ when I attempted to post on a couple of stories today.

    It seems to be working all right now.
