Yeah, topanga has been averaging about +/-30 this morning, and over the weekend. I timed my page load, and it took 15 seconds to respond from the time I hit GO until anything appeared on the screen.

I’d check it tomorrow, once tonight’s router upgrade is done. If it’s still high, let support know – but I believe they’ve already told a few users that the high loads were related to the network problems, even though they got things running again before the parts get here for the real fix.

I’m in an optimistic mood. At least it isn’t taking me 3 minutes to see the result of an uptime command, like it was on Friday. So the network’s stable now, at least. Somewhat.

Yes, I have an opinion.

Get a minimum 50% off with the “haveadreamyday” promo code, and… have a dreamy day. Original, no?

That’s good, but I think there can still be some fluctuation until after the upgrade. Everything is working for me, but I noticed the load has varied a lot throughout the day.

It was 3 - 5 awhile ago, but just now when I checked it was:

12:45:13 up 2 days, 9:39, 6 users, load average: 82.22, 61.91, 47.60

4 minutes later:

12:49:44 up 2 days, 9:44, 6 users, load average: 168.95, 113.11, 71.78

And going back down a few minutes later:

12:54:45 up 2 days, 9:49, 6 users, load average: 51.29, 81.21, 70.54

Like I said though, everything is working fine. I’m guessing it’s just a few things getting backed up during the sporadic problems.
