The forum will be unavailable for maintenance at some point from Friday, April 13 at 19:00 EDT until Sunday, April 15 at 23:59 EDT. Downtime will be minimized but the exact timing is unknown.

For the last days, my access to this forum has been really slow. Oddly, pages are shown as fast as usually (say, within 1-2 seconds, which is alright with me) but then the browser's status bar shows "Waiting for" for about one minute(!) and seems to prevent the page from being completely rendered.

Additionally, trying to add a comment failed several times, too (or I simply did not wait long enough?).

This appears on different boxes in different networks, so I don't think it's a browser issue (I'm using FF 36, FWIW).

Is that a known behaviour?

FWIW, "" returns a 110 timeout.

Yep, I noticed the same thing over the weekend. We're looking into the problem...

The problem should be corrected: there were some out-of-date references to resources on still lingering on each of the generated forum pages. I have removed them.

Hm, the DCX homepage still tells "" for me, the same is true for the individual topics like - if there is a redirection, it's hidden from me:)
