Normally I spend my Sundays crying, thumbsucking, rocking back & forth in a fetal position, and surfing the BP forums.

Today it was just crying, thumbsucking, and rocking back & forth in a fetal position.

Very slow, most of the time for a few days. Either my browser times out or it is so slow that I have to find something else to do while the page loads.

I suspected the slowness was a sign that there was a new team of gerbils being trained? I might be right. Expect a message to be posted here later today.

I'd like to thank the gerbils for improving my access today. Perhaps that way they will have future incentive to stay on my side of the cage.

We've been having another spate delays.

Maybe they're running the new software in parallel for testing.  (I'm such an optimist).
