The little hamster that powers our servers by running for its life in a hamster wheel was pulled under said wheel and crushed to death last night. While we mourned Nappy's untimely death we replaced him with a new hamster but unfortunately this one is a fat, lazy drunkard so the site will be slow until we can find another one. This is what happens when you order a hamster on a last-minute basis.

Can you inject said hampster with steroids? This might solve the HTTP issue.

For a short amount of time...but then the hamster will begin to run to fast and break the wheel, causing a huge fire and burning said hamster to death. Causing him to haunt the forum.
