As of this morning (Friday 8-14) we have migrated to our new, faster server. It has taken a lot longer and was more painful than expected. And in the days to come we will be working on optimizing it for additional performance.
We hope you missed us while we struggled with terribly slow response times and the website was frequently unavailable :-).
But now you should anticipate a much faster website for quite some time to come. Unless or until we outgrow this machine.
Thanks for your patience. Now let the conversation begin again.
