Unable to Connect

Yesterday evening into late night (~6PM-3AM PST) I was unable to connect to the forum at all. I got "couldn't find the server" response from my web browser (I tried firefox and chrome). There didn't seem to be a problem with any other sites (including the main blog). Anyway, not sure what was going on, but thought I'd give you a heads up in case it was on your end.

I also experienced this over the weekend for several hours and this morning for an hour or so. I assumed it was also associated with the large uptick in traffic on Goko -- people also ending up here.

Doesn't have anything to do with Goko; has everything to do with our database crashing a lot recently.  I'm at a loss to explain why.  Thanks for the heads up.

Database Error
Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.

So here I am reporting it.

Yeah :(

I made some changes that maybe fixed it.  I think the site is getting DDoS'd for some reason?

I meant the uptick in traffic could be related, if the connection problems are due to too much traffic. People see video review, become interested in Dominion, flock to both Goko and f.ds. I did not mean to suggest that the servers are related.

But if there hasn't been an increase in traffic, then.... I don't know.

Aww, you just spoiled theory's April Fool's joke for this year!  Now he has to come up with something else to troll us with!
