IDK if this is directly linked to the tech problems but I'm still experiencing extremely slow download times, with starts and stops, which sometimes stops altogether. Since I haven't really experienced this elsewhere (but admit don't download much), I concluded it must be in some way related to the site or the connection to the site. Right now it took me about 15 min. to download 1 rar. file of 9.3 mb when normally I do that in around 1 min. depending on the time of day.
