The consistency may improve throughout the day. I ran the curl test 20x directly on the server:
Time Total: 0.449 
Time Total: 0.395 
Time Total: 0.378 
Time Total: 0.310 
Time Total: 0.320

Time Total: 0.340 
Time Total: 0.333 
Time Total: 0.351 
Time Total: 0.336

And here's the same test run from my laptop over the public network:
Time Total: 6.233837 
Time Total: 1.909841 
Time Total: 9.867858 
Time Total: 0.445195 
Time Total: 1.664795

Time Total: 6.623081 
Time Total: 3.040478 
Time Total: 0.468526

Time Total: 1.791784 
Time Total: 5.339140 
Time Total: 0.703051

Time Total: 2.541436
There's a few big outliers in the above set (9.8, 7.0, 6.6, 5.3). The data center with the outliers wasn't always the same, suggesting [again] that it's an unpredictable delay in the network hops between "here" and the HB server. While that's sometimes annoying, it's much better than the last two days. I'll go with the programmer's suggestion I mentioned earlier. :lol:

The site has been lightning fast all day for me. Much faster then I can remember it being in the past few years.

All still seems well for me.

At least for me, this site has always been fast :D, but in trying to diagnose this problem, I eliminated some script loading until later in the page, so in theory that could explain the performance boost you noticed.

I've seen regular slowdowns for ages. Nothing like the last few days but still pretty irritating. Hopefully the site will stay "fast" on my end.

Hmm-m, that's news to me. I've tracked performance for a long time; you can check yourself anytime with Google Page Speed Insights. If you click "Show Origin Summary", it show the overall stats for all pages. For example, I just captured this one for the desktop:



The mobile only scores a 90; that's still good! From a user's viewpoint, the LCP is probably the most noticeable -- that's when the page is visualized enough that the user knows it's responding.

And I wasn't blaming you, just pointing out that the Speed Insights test doesn't show the issues we had.
