These issues sound more like packet loss and routing issues rather than a performance issue with the server.

I'll run it by our host's support department, see if there's a problem with the network somewhere.
My ping times are pretty good to UM from Central New York State. I'm averaging around 29ms pings.

I am definitely getting ping timeouts though. Usually within the first 20 pings.

And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"

Same here. I mentioned it last night on my status and was going to mention it to Saru but I couldn't get a new topic loaded.

It's been working fine so far. Apart from one point in the morning at 8.34am on the dot.There are other times when it dosn't work but usually that's later about night- time.But it's got nothing to do with the connection here because all my other websites have been knocked off.It's telling me to re- boot the Safari browser so I go to settings and knock on and off both the " airplane" and " Wi- Fi" modes.I even get a reminder in the form of a box that's totally independent of whatever happens here.I also get that ping but I pay it no mind.Tbh I thought it was just telling me about an incoming E- Mail.

Just happened to me again when I went from a short-ish thread I'd been reading, back to the main list of forums.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

It's been happening to me for the last week or so also.

In fact, I just clicked for page 2 to write this, and it hung for like 30 sec, then said "Cannot Display Web Page)

Oddly enough, everytime this has been happening, the F5 button pops me back in immediately, to the correct page !

No problems at all with any other sites such as CNN or Foxnews.

Weird.

Ok so I've been talking to our host's technical support department and they've had a look at the server, there's doesn't appear to be anything wrong on this end at all - both the site and the server are in good shape with no load, performance or network issues.

What I think is happening is that there's a network/routing issue with a server/node somewhere else that is generating packet loss for some users when they try to access the site here, we've seen this happen before on occasion and unfortunately it's completely out of our control - network problems happen a lot and these can affect different sites for different people at different times.

yes, it does go off briefly round about 8:30 a.m. (UK Time) each morning, I suppose while they unplug one server & plug the other one in or something. Though it did, before they Improved it, go off for a good 10-15 mins every morning, that could get tiresome.

I think it does that if you click the 'Quote' button twice, it can easily be done, I quite often do it.
