Site really slow, keeps timing out Answered

Has anybody else been finding this site really slow lately ? It's taking minutes for pages to load and I keep getting "page timed out" . I doubt it's my connection since all other sites work.

I'bles was the victim of a denial-of-service (DoS) attack late last week, which may still be going on.  I have found that the cache servers (squid02.instructables.com and squid03.instructables.com) seem to respond better than the main server.  However, they won't necessarily recognize cookies from one another, so you might need to login in separately to those machines.

I found the site very slow about 13 hours before this post, but it's fine now.
