The plaintiffs have all been denied boarding due to their placement on the list, they argue, despite never having been charged with a terrorism-related offense.”
Slashdot used to be superfast
No matter where I happened to be - be it in America, in Asia, in Europe, in Africa or in Australia, - Slashdot loads up fast
No matter if the device is a smartphone or a desktop PC, you could almost always count on Slashdot to load fast
But no more
Now Slashdot takes something like 10+ seconds to load, and sometimes it took more than half a minute to load
Has Dice shrunk the pipe to the Slashdot server?
