Problems with the site connection

Having problems staying connected to the site, including posting responses. It keeps saying something about the “vanilla forum”. Not knowing this technology, I don’t understand the message.

I’m having the same problem. Fails about 1/2 to 2/3 of the time.

Vanilla Forums maintenance;

Scheduled - Starting at 2PM Eastern Time on May 14th, Vanilla’s hosting environment will be in a maintenance window for 6 hours. During this time, all nodes in the environment will be rebooted at least once and as a result there will be some instance downtime which will impact customer forums. We expect the actual outage period to last for approximately 45 minutes.

Thanks.

But it’s 8 PM eastern now.

and I got an error when posting this.

Car Talk Forums have been a little more balky than usual for me here in San Jose ( been logged in May 14 from 6 pm to 8:30 pm Eastern) but overall not much trouble.

I have had some issues connecting today, as well.

@cdaquila -Don’t you ever get a day off ? Do we need to check the labor laws ?

Lucky me no issues.

I’m never very far away, Mr. V70.
