What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I'm getting timeouts currently. Is anyone else seeing poor performance? Meta works fine currently. chat.meta seems slow.

Could just be my PC.

From Gibraltar to New York via Korea. It's going around the world the long way. The timeouts occur roughly at the Pacific ocean, not otherwise unusual. –  Uphill Luge May 1 '11 at 18:08
    
@Hans Passant Anyway to force it to take the same route as meta? –  Wes May 1 '11 at 18:21
    
No. You'll have to get support from your ISP. –  Uphill Luge May 1 '11 at 18:29

For some reason, your DNS seems to be accessing the wrong IP. 64.34.119.12 is SO's IP address. I suggest you flush your DNS cache.
