Site slow?

I have followed the recent epz advice on speeding things up. I was online yesterday and the site was running fine. Tonight however, it is taking some 15 seconds to view an image and another 15 seconds to comment or vote. Opening a large image is not a problem. Anyone else having problems with speed?

It does vary of course, but I just shows the sporadic nature of speed issues and how hard it can be to pin point things.

Thanks for the response Doug. I had waited some time before posting my comment, to see if it was a brief blip. Since starting this thread, things do seem to be a bit better. However, it seems I am not alone, as another thread was re-instated while I was starting this one.

EDIT: It took over 20 seconds for the above to register.
EDIT 2: The edit took 2 or 3 seconds!

Opening pages is like watching grass grow, fast losing my sanity starting to consider watching T/V.

Desperately, tortuously slow. I'm off to look for some shoes to buy on-line. I never thought I'd find myself thinking that shopping was more fun than EPZ. Sad
