Anyone having issues viewing pictures today?

I'm having a really hard time opening images that are hosted here today. I feel like I'm back in the 90s with my 56K modem but it only appears to be happening on this site.

Firefox on a PC. I haven't cleared my cache today but will see if that helps. The site seems to be acting pretty normal for me, except when I open an image, and then the image slowly comes in like back in the day.

Clearing the cache did help a little, but it's still running slow for me. For example, THIS image took over 45 seconds to load before I cleared the cache and restarted firefox. After restarting firefox it still took close to 15 seconds to load but I'm coming in at 89Mbps download speeds right now.

Yeah I've noticed that on a few occasions and thought it was my home wifi lol guess it's not just me having this issue

I found the issue and it was my wireless adapter. I work from home so my office PC is plugged into my company network, but I use a wireless adapter so I can hit things on my local network, too. I was just looking at the network monitor while I was having issues and the wireless adapter kept repeatedly disconnecting and then reconnecting. I disable that adapter and now this site is working fine. It's really weird that I wasn't having issues with other sites, though.
