I sent in a ticket recently about the slow times my website loads and they checked and found the load times to be normal. Closed ticket. End of story.
For me I'm slowing down and getting errors in FF and IE. Reload a few times and get the pages to load. Yesterday I'm dead for hours. HOURS. I can't get in to work. I logged in to drop yet another ticket and find out we have equipment trouble. I didn't bother with the ticket because it would be pointless and I would say what I was thinking at the time. Not good. So I abandoned it.
How it the trouble always affect where my site is? Whatever the answer to that question is, it effects me. Its getting predictably unreliable around here. Not a good look for Dreamhost.
