Exactly the same here Orbmiser, Sunday 17th was the worst, it took me an hour to make one post, but yesterday and today are pretty poor as well. It was reported to Clem on Sunday and after that it got much better, but seems to be getting worse since then.
Edit. Since I posted that comment it seems to be alright again
