why my real blog is sloooooow loading...

Alas, my real blog appears to be very slooooooooow loading. If it loads at all. :-/

This is what I'm seeing from time to time today:

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.
Or the pages actually load but without all the images or formatting.

Or the page loads with a message saying that there is an internal server error. Pffoooey!

I have no idea when things will return to normal. Here is an excerpt from the updates page:

November 16, 10:47 PM - Last (And Largest) Account!
All accounts are moved and made active. DNS seems to be behaving itself.

The last account is still transferring. It is massive. Everyone else is in place.

Thank you for your patience. It has been a long recovery and the plans to avoid this in future are in place - AND I got my spare drives in already! 1 day shipping after waiting over a year to find a supply.
November 14, 2:57 PM - Moving Page

Your data is safe.

This is a way to keep your data safe. The moving page will appear until we get your site up on the new system.

Please bear with us...
November 14, 12:21 PM - Finally, A Cause
So we finally have a cause - there is a bad sector of disk.

We are getting data off onto other disks and moving accounts onto other servers.

This is a flow blown emergency migration.
