Resolved: Degradation experienced a degradation in service from 12:55 to 1:15 PM today, August 29. The slowness in response was caused due to an influx of traffic on the server.

During that period users may have experienced a timing-out of connections that rely on the server. As of 1:15 PM, and all services dependent on it were restored to full functionality.
