Sometimes if many people are using Ellie - we can lag a bit. These happen less often since we upgraded our server on 5/19/20. You can run the
$ping command to see if it's us or you.
If the ping is between 0 - 200 that's typical. Sometimes there are random spikes that go up to 1000ms+, if that happens make sure you run the ping command again.
You can also check our status to see how we're doing at https://status.elliebot.xyz.
