What is up with them right now? None of the scripts that I have and rely on mysql are working very fast at all. Even phpmyadmin is being extremely slow and even non-responsive at times.
Which server is your database on? Your server should be listed here:
I have one on riffraff and it seems normal.
My databases are hosted on bill. It actually seemed to be more responsive about an hour after posting. Just never got around to giving the update.
