LJ trickle

Have you noticed LJ has been kinda sluggish the past couple days--especially today. I've had it timeout trying to load pages several times today.

Many users will experience site slowdowns or difficulty loading pages today. We know what the problem is, and we're working on fixing it. Thank you for your patience!

Here's my theory:
Summer is in full swing and all the school-aged kids, who statistically comprise the majority of LJ users, have plenty of opportunity to just bang on the poor LJ servers all day long and they're just plum overloaded.
