    Default Is it me or... ?

    I've logged onto GC.com this morning and the site is acting rather slow. Any other site that I go to is responding normally, so I don't think it's me.

    Oscilating between remarkable brillance and sheer stupidity with amazing regularity.

    It has been slow up till now. I suspect it has something to do with the maintenance shutdown coming later today.

    I agree, it is much faster now, I was able to post my finds from last night without getting frustrated!!

    Isn't the maintenance next wednesday? not today?!?!

    I did notice that when I did a search for my town and that pushed "map view" it automatically went to the "beta maps" with a link to "old map view" instead of the other way around. This may have been why it was slow this morning!

    I had that happen yesterday! I couldn't even get a pocket query. I gave up and retried it a few hours later and all was well.
    I smell cache...

    Maps were weird . . . both maps in the normal and beta map program would show me all caches . . . no Smileys . . . even when I tried to fix the settings . . . fixed itself later on.

    It's not your imagination, the site is experiencing a lot of load lately. But, there are changes on the way: "Geocaching.com will be going offline for 4-6 hours for a site update on Wednesday, May 04, 2011 at approximately 9am PDT (GMT -7). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause."

    This is going to be a rather long outage, so load up and caching next Wednesday!
