sorry for few posts - it is busy at work and LJ is almost unusable in the evenings :)
I guess that's the price for the service getting popular. It is OK first thing but about lunch time (when you damn Americans wake up ;) ) it slows to a crawl and in the evening it wont let me access my friends page. do you think they are trying to encourage me to have a paid account?

blessed be
