We have noticed that it is taking longer to build our applications today.
Some of the builds are failing while downloaded dependent packages. Operation is timing out.
I was wondering if anybody else is seeing this.

    Some notes how to deal with intermittent issues.

    Use build cache for NuGet packages

    To avoid downloading packages from on every build you can use build cache

    If packages folder is in the root of your repo add this to appveyor.yml:

    - packages -> **\packages.config

    That means "preserve packages folder contents between builds unless any of packages.config changes".

    Enable detailed logging

    If you experience nuget restore issues enable detailed logging with -verbosity detailed command line option, for example:

    nuget restore -verbosity detailed

    This will help to better understand the root cause of the issue.

    My problems went away so it may have been nuget issue.
    I appreciate your suggestions and I will incorporate them.
