Just slows down to a crawl for me...like a few BPS.  May be on my end though I can access some other .wiki sites.

No, the wiki is clearly not working at the moment.

There are some server problems, and a few services have been shutdown to avoid new writes to the filesystem. It could be a few days.

Same problem.
Maybe wiki platform is under update process now, the other reason is flooding - some spam attacks, idk, but, it's lagging since yesterday

marcov already wrote what the reason is. Though quite some pages work without problems (though we've switched the Wiki to readonly for now).

You can access old snapshots from https://web.archive.org/web/*/wiki.freepascal.org. It may be slow and incomplete, however, and it is certainly not up to date.
function GetRandomNumber: integer; // xkcd.com
begin
  GetRandomNumber := 4; // chosen by fair dice roll. Guaranteed to be random.
end;
