    Default Is it just my connection or do these forums keep bouncing?

    I've noticed that quite frequently I find it completely impossible to get onto these forums.

    While I'm at my desk I have three possible routes to the internets and trying each one separately causes the same response:

    1) Connection.
    2) Freeze - almost like the webserver is picking up the requests and then timing out on the (presumably mysql?) backend server?

    This happens at least every other day to me and sometimes each consecutive day at roughly the same times. I'm just wondering if anyone else notes this behaviour?

    They must be having router/internet access issues... they seem to be going down with a high frequency lately.

    Getting the same problem (and as often) connecting to this forum. Usually get the 'this page cannot be displayed' message

    yeah, since I've started coming here this site has experienced a lot of downtime. Recently, I would say in the last 2 months, the downtime has been longer and more frequent. Sometimes an entire day goes by and I cannot connect to the site.
