Unfortunately, our hosting provider (Dreamhost) seems to not work well with high-traffic Drupal sites. The site has been down on and off all day, due to traffic from the CNET piece this morning. Our heroic sysadmin Ben disabled logins so that the site could be served from a cache, which helped. You may have problems logging in, and posting comments or threads in the forum.
We are working to address these issues as soon as possible, and we are making it a high-priority to move to a new hosting site, for increased speed during regular times, and better stability in these inevitable high-traffic bursts.
The website has been slow for me since it launched. By contrast, the Wiki is always fast.
