    Both Safari and Firefox could not find server for a few tries. Something to do with Olys traffic, maybe? Cleared cache, etc.

    Olys traffic combined with old board, I'd say. I had trouble there for a bit at the end of the ladies' SPs.

    It brought back memories of all the times the board would crash during big comps and the admins would all be gnashing their teeth over the dreaded vars_misc_file error :lol:.

    Thought that might be it. Thanking you! :)

    Still having issues getting the site to load. Working with a Nexus 7, and sometimes I get "Chrome could not find..." and a few times I got taken to Amazon saying "page does not exist." Also have been redirected to Yahoo with the same message. Seems like all of my other bookmarked sites load. I've cleared caches and histories and the other remedies. Any ideas? Should mention my iMac desktop running Safari and Firefox also have problems. I thought it might be my ISP (Fairpoint), but why would it only affect a site or two? (Mrs. Reuven has had trouble loading Yahoo on the Mac.) I'm puzzled.

    Have you had problems today or was this a couple of days ago? We seem to be having periodic issues with the database, but the last time was Wednesday, as far as I know.

    By the sounds of it, it is something on your end. I've been able to connect quite well.

    Prancer: it’s been going on for a while.
    Server Guy: I’d thought I’d check again with you. I’m just not sure why my ISP would be picking on FSU. Although it loaded just fine this morning on the Mac. So I’ll just be :huh: for a while until I figure this thang out.

    I had trouble loading fsu yesterday on my computer (I got an error message) and it loaded very slowly for me this morning on my phone.

    Hmmm, I haven't been able to reproduce any connection issues. I'll keep an eye on the server today and see if I spot anything problematic.

    I have them occasionally, too, but they never last long and I haven't experienced slow loads for a long time. But there are days when I have connection issues that last about a minute or two off and on all day.

    I am still having problems, and I’ve spent some time with a IPS tech, going through all sorts of ideas, but everything checks out on their end. FSU is the only site having this issue. Is there a way to ping FSU to check? (If I can figure out how.)
    ETA: I figured it out and 10 pings, 10 returns, 0% packet loss. I’m stumped.
