Something is broken, every action is taking like ten seconds if it comes back at all.

Yeah. Experienced this earlier today. Thought it was my smartphone. Turns out that it was just AT.

Off and on for the last several days has felt like the dial up days with how SLOW the site gets. o_O

I've received no time out error messages like in the past, but it seems to take forever for things to load.

Yeah, been bad again today. I've noticed a couple problems with other sites getting hung up on DNS servers.

That is normal. Even trying to trace google will give you that. Some ISP routers, servers, and gateways are configured to not respond back to ICMP or traceroute messages/requests. This is an intended safety measure.

CloudFront CDN is owned by Amazon. And yes, the forum crawls now and then, and it happened 1 or 2 days ago again, showing the same error message above.

In all seriousness, the issue seems to resolve itself by the time anyone looks into it.
It seems when it's a longer issue, (days), will our overlords come out to fix it.

I have had it where a few hours of dragging goes on and suddenly it's fixed.

How do we report main site issues? Its been weeks and I'm consistently getting Error: The request could not be satisfied. 504 with a cloudfront error.
This error has been pretty consistent lately.
