Servers are getting pounded!
We need to apologize to you, and thank you, for the amount of traffic we are receiving. We are now experiencing over 100Xs the typical amount of traffic that we usually receive. So that is why we are experiencing slow downs. We are going to be working tonight to get a few things optimized on the site and hope that it handles it. When we do our next Tangathon, we will definitely be more prepared for the server load with a lot more resources.
Update: We ran out of disk space. How silly of us! Problem fixed, Tanga away!
