Server problems?

Everthing OSM seems very slow at the moment, or is it just me?

Specifically, I often use OS OpenData as a WMS layer in JOSM, only it hasn’t been able to download any data for the last couple of days. I also use OSL Musical Chairs ( as a guide to finding problems with street names. At the moment it is slow to the point of being unusable. Anybody know what is happening?

Server slowdowns happen from time to time. Keep an eye on the main wiki page, there is a server stat widget that is kept reasonably uptodate by the admins.

Might explain it. Thanks.
