Site slow? Points not counting?

The site is running very slowly at times during testing for me. Also, it appears my points aren't being added to my totals.

Is there a site issue? Is this related to the AWS outage last night?

We're working on fixing this problem (it is related to an AWS RDS outage). If you refresh the page, it should be working again.


Thanks Luis, love to see the hands-on approach. I saw your TED talk, and I definitely agree you're onto something big here. I'm quite happy where I am or else I'd be knocking down your door trying to get on board with this. Keep it up!
