I've never used meta before but my understanding is that questions about the site go here?

Normally when I log into Askubuntu it uses http, but today when I logged in it used https, and it's unbearably slow. I can access the site both ways after logging in, and http is instantaneous at loading pages while https takes maybe 20 seconds to load a page if at all. Is anyone else having this problem? I would assume I'm supposed to be using https to secure my account.

Earlier, Stack Exchange was moving all operations from New York to Oregon, which caused slowness in all HTTPS connections. This can be seen in the twitter account:
