Performance issues on the main site

There seems to have been a problem overnight that caused an outage for a couple of hours, but the site does now seem to be up again albeit running slowly.

Is anyone else experiencing performance issues, slow page loading etc. on the main site, or is it just me?

    What about the set images? Are they appearing OK? They aren't for me, but I think it might be my end.

    Me too - images are fine, as is access speed.

    Turns out it was my end, and it's quite interesting why.

    I've just bought a new PC and while setting it up I thought I'd download all the images from the FTP server as a new baseline copy. I also have a relatively new router, for BT total broadband.

    What seems to have happened is that while the FTP client was downloading 10 images at a time, the router detected this and thought it suspicious and blocked all further access to the remote site from all devices in the house. I found this out when examining its log which had a cryptic message in it.

    Rebooting it cleared the problem and Brickset sprung into life. If I try to download again I'll do it one image at a time, overnight.
