Thanks for the heads up! Checking on this right now.
From Lithium: "We are currently investigating reports of latency issues while posting for customers hosted in our San Jose data center. Lithium engineering is investigating the behavior further."
Should be resolved now. Please let me know if you encounter any other slowness.
Thanks for the heads up, Philip. I had just noticed this also and have reported it to Lithium. Hopefully they'll resolve the issue soon!
