Factory slowness 8/30/2020 (internet routing issues)


In case others are seeing this on their end, I'm having a very slow connection/response with the POI Factory site this morning but not with other sites.

If others see this too, it may be maintenance to the site, server issues on its end, or something else. I suppose it also could be ISP or DNS issues on my end.

Having the same same.

Slow to respond and unable to load site intermittently.
