I just read the thread on zebes but I've been experiencing slowness the past couple of day on a lot of Dreamhosted sites.
I'm not entirely sure that it's not a network problem here but it seems that DH sites are slower for me than others at the moment.
Since SBC is my ISP and they were mentioned in the zebes thread I did a few trace routes and found that I blazed through the sbc points and started creeping along when I reached cogentco, particularly SF and LA. I'm a complete Internet routing dunce so I dunno if this means anything but there it is.
Any suggestions on what I can do to diagnose this problem correctly and get it fixed (whether it be your end or mine)? I thought I should say something as I was assuming this was just general internet sluggishness do to the war traffic but the internet weather reports are looking good and it appears to be localized to sites on DH for me...
