Thanks! No, I haven't really checked any details, been so busy answering emails and questions, here and there. But, I can.
I created this discussion to see if others were experiencing similar issues. When I found out a few were, I decided not to sweat it for a while. Even since I created the discussion, mine is loading much closer to normal.
I'll check closer, and see what the status is right now.
Okay, just checked and it seems fairly normal. When I created discussion, for about 45 minutes it was really bad. I tried everything, even clearing cache.
I checked pingdom, currently loading at 6.5, last 2 checks were 4.75 and 5.44.
Let me know if I can do anything else. I didn't close the discussion, cause it seems some of our fellow NCs are having load issues. But for now, my site appears to be loading just fine. :-)
