For the last 2 days, at least, the forum has been very slow. Anyone know why?

The server responds with alacrity, but the pages render slowly, especially on long pages. There's a lot of jumping and jerking up and down and back and forth before posts can be read.
And I've got a theory: I just looked at the source for this page, and the CSS has an awful lot of font property declarations, most of them for the same fonts. It's my suspicion that these declarations are slowing things down, at least for me, because I have a huge number of fonts installed, and if the browser is looking for a font file for each of these declarations, it's going to slow it down; even if the font is cached.
Interesting theory. However, nothing has changed in the CSS files, and these are the files provided by Vbulletin, so I'm not sure it's the cause of delay.
Still having trouble getting into the arcade.
This is the error message I got when I just tried it a minute ago.
