In the past week, the statistics of this site changed dramatically. Although we are continuing to accrue new registrants at the rate of about 5-8 per day, the number of page views on the site dropped by about 30% last week. The number of visitors likewise dropped by 30% from close to 900 per day at the end of August to about 600 per day. The number of registered visitors fell from about 400 per day to 300 per day. The response time of the site also appears to be down. Usually, the site responds within 200 msec but it has doubled to 400-500 msec; I don't think that the site itself is slow but the internet response time has been slow.
