Maybe the servers' hamster wheel bearings need grease? It couldn't hurt to let the hamsters themselves rest a little as well.

I've been telling that to Star for years.

I thought we'd had a technobabble upgrade to Lemmings - with a little drop-down picture of a cliff for when we needed a turbo boost.

The lemmings upgrade is only available from the Microsoft Store and requires Win 10.

I've been on my phone for the past couple hours and it's been fine.

Yup. Aces now.


I hope that the hamster union demands were reasonable.

Give the hamsters a break. Star is demanding.

Slower that ever for me now.

I'm still getting slow load times on PC with a wired internet connection (even after logging out, browser restarts, machine restart, etc). Behavior is the same on home and work networks which use different ISPs.

Not so noticeable on my phone, but it may be that I just expect lag on mobile devices.

The slow load time is a new development for me. Only noticed it in the past week.
