I'm seeing lots of problems trying to connect to the forum in the past day or two. At times, I give up, and come back a hour or two later, and get in. It is not a problem on my end; I have normal access and internet speeds for other sites.

Is this a known problem?

I have the same problem. Hopefully the site owner can figure this one out.

The site works for me.

Check the web site http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/ and it is up.

Update or clear (erase) your cookies, cache and browser history for a clean attempt to access any website.

Might be regional or your server ISP is jammed with game stuff or other stuff.

I`m having the same problem here.
I get into the site and look at a few
things and then it quits.

yup, this is revisiting an issue I had a long time ago that got 100% better and has now returned.

Sometimes I can fly right through a few threads and other times it just sticks on "waiting...."

No other sites I visit do this and in fact, trying to click on this thread to see what the issue was (guessing it was this) it happened again.

Well, at least I'm not imagining it. Hopefully, the site administrators are aware of it also.

It also happens to me as well. In fact, quite frequently in the past week.

It happened to me, too.

It occurs to me that an automatic install of a Windows update was just made last week, so I was wondering if that could have had something to do with it?

The problem did not occur on any other websites. No matter, it seems as though the problem is resolved today.

I had an automatic update of Windows recently also, but as I'm not having trouble with any other websites, I don't think that's the problem here.

So, for now, I'm off to see if I can leave a couple of posts in other sections now, before it happens again.

I'm also have periodic difficulties. Sometimes I can get access other times no and sometimes I can read a couple of forums and then I'm unable to continue. Strange. Something is amiss.

Don

PS I also had the Windows update, but no similar trouble elsewhere.

I've been checking periodically since yesterday and haven't had a page take more than .4 seconds. Will look into it though.

seems to be off and on Bobby. I've only popped in here a few times this afternoon and it's been fine but had some serious delays earlier today.

Unlike the last time I had this problem, it doesn't time out. it just never loads

About 15 minutes after Mike33's post, I tried to read this thread, and the page would not load. None of the pages on the forum would load. Tried off and on for about 10 minutes, and then gave up.

I back now an hour or so later, and things are better. But for how long? Something is wrong.

I am still suggesting erasing the cookie for the site.

Perhaps also ads cookies etc. Ah, just erase them all. They do reload with the neweer current ones.


Try also using XTRL-F5 to reload a page and get the new cookie or history record of the site. That may work also.

Still OK here sipping coconut juice, dreaming.

I had the same problem, of not being able to get on within a 15 minute period or so. This was this morning for me, but would've been beginning about 1:05pm Eastern Time.

I have not done any kind of Windows update, for what it's worth.

I could not get in for about two hours, but it just seemed to clear up. I too had a Windows update, but all other websites seemed to behave OK!
