I have that issue on and off, most of the time if I go back a few minutes later it works again.

I have issues too sometimes. It will just sit trying to connect until it times out. I remember Alexandra bringing it up in a past meeting of it doing the same to her. I do get the " Service Unavailable " notification too sometimes. On the plus side the new host seems to work better with my iPhone.

My connection seems much better than before, I've had less problems recently. If I do get this error it never seems to last long, if you come back a minute later it starts again. Does anyone have really long waits before getting back on?

This forum is lightning fast on the most reliable host on Earth at Dreamhost.
I have ran every test possible and even pay a monitoring service to tell me when and if the forum is down and when it goes back up.

I use uptime robot for monitoring.

Here is the list of every outage since Sept 16 along with the up periods between them.

I certainly appreciate your efforts Stephen. Nothing's perfect but SolarChat is certainly the best forum I have ever been evolved with.
