For the past several days (it seems like about a week) I've been having an exceedingly difficult time reaching this website. I sit waiting for the page to "open" and often after waiting literally several minutes I am met with a db error msg. I encounter some type of connection issue at about the rate of maybe 3 of 5 times. Most of the time I give up and try again later.

Yesterday, as you know, a problem occurred preventing us from opening threads, but something similar must be happening when trying to reach the site too. Other users must be experiencing this because its happening to me on three different pc's in three places in the U.S on three different internet ramps.

Ok, I just got into the site and it took 6 minutes 33 seconds. No error message though.

Is anyone else experiencing this, or is it really just me?
