Discourse loading slow

@esmathews @obj
Do you have any idea why this discourse is being so slow?
I suspect the “forum in read-only mode” has something to with it?

I’m getting http error 429 quite a bit looking at my browser console.

It does seem a little slow today.
Maybe they lost a web server in a cluster/VIP group. Or maybe it is doing some first day of the month house keeping.

it looks like I am using IPV6. I wonder if it is just IPV6 related.

I had the read only mode thing yesterday, but it I assumed there was some maintenance happening and it went away after a while. Not seen it today though.

Oh, so it’s not hosted by FA anyway.
It’s fine again now, seems to depend on the time of day.

Let’s hope discourse fixes it then.
