Yesterday was a bad day for slight slow downs.

Virtually all were due to waiting for CDN-1 or CDN-2

I'd guess they were occurring a dozen times an hour.

It seems that adopting CDN, for international speed ups, is actually slowing down the responses.

I'm looking into this speed issue now. There doesn't seem to be any obvious pattern so far but if people are having problems please post the following:

1) The result of both Down For Everyone Or Just Me -> Check if your website is down or up? and Website speed test
2) The current time in New York (our server operates on EST) - Google "time in new york" to find out
3) Whether it's CDN related (you are seeing "waiting for cdn-1.diyaudio.com etc / you see the page text but without styling (plain white background)) or if the main page itself is not loading / is slow
4) Your OS and Browser and Browser version

We'll try to work out a pattern.

Thanks.

When I open up DIYAdio i get a normal page and then when I do refresh I get a white background and sometimes a very basic old style looking format!!

I have two screen shots of the two but I don't see the attachment button here?!!!!

Just like here,

Looking rather odd tonight...

I am using Chrome for a browser.

I just tried IE and it was working fine, so it must be an issue with Google Chrome.
Chrome just had a recent update and it seems as though it has been messing up and did lock up a few times lately.

Thanks!!

Attachment button is in "Manage attachments" when you do "Advanced edit" instead of a "Quick Reply".

The white background means you haven't loaded the style sheets properly, or corrupted or 0 byte style sheets have been cached. Do a full refresh when this happens:

Refresh your cache - When hitting F5 just isn't enough!

Yes, I know how to add attachments but the buttons were not there when I tried to post them right after I had typed my post and hit manage attachments while the screen still had its normal colors.

I don't use any shorcut key strokes as I don't know them.

I used the refresh that is in the upper left hand corner in the Chrome browser.

Everything seems to be back in order now and I have also included the two screenshots of the error of a few days ago.

It seems that it was just an issue with chrome as I was having issues with it on FB as well.
IE did not do this when I tried it immediately after it had messed up using Chrome.

Thank You for your time!!

Running Vista and IE9. Site dropped off the radar at 10:12AM E.S.T.

The noted effect of the glitch was... any tabs open on diyAudio remained open but wouldn't allow navigation to other areas of the site. I just got the spinning globe while the page I was on remained "open". Closing the browser and trying to open diyAudio gave a blank white screen with spinning globe at the top (in the tab).

Pingdom doesn't seem to work for me, even when the site is up

I think it was a DNS problem not a DoS. My providers name server (UPC) could not reach the authoritative name server for diyaudio.com, switching to Googles name server (which apparently do more extensive caching) brought back the site immediately.
