I was wondering if people are experiencing problems loading the Magento connect manager and checking for upgrades. Mine seems to stall for ever. In Firefox it times out and in Internet Explorer only displays possible upgrades after about 5 minutes.
Two days ago everyting was fine. Is it something on the Magento connect server or my own? I’m on a semi-dedicated server running 1.1.6.
