I ran into the same complete block for the first time ever last night. Have
had plenty of times when it's been painfully slow during the evening but
last night it just would not play ball at all. Didn't appear to be any
specific aspect, just every component seemed to be less than responsive. I
gave up at around 11:30pm GMT having I guess started at around 10:00pm
