Anyone else getting this message? It's intermittent but often.

I was going to leave a comment that "No it must be your end", when I got that message, for the first time ever! Is it something naughty on the site, perhaps?

I'm no expert but I reckon that the server may be busy.

I may be wrong, but to me, this looks like the host is attempting to cap the bandwidth by running a program that automatically limits the bandwidth by sending resets to the gateway if the instantaneous bandwidth exceeds a given amount. Either that, or the DP server has, somehow, accidentally been put into a category that calls for traffic shaping, which does the same thing to people who download torrents.

I'm glad it not only me, I was thinking of reporting Vauge to the EU for crimes against humanity.
I got a strange notice talking about Twitter yesterday:confused:

Well I've found some small issues and corrected them.

However, 'something' is causing the system software to stop everything every now and then. Unsure, but I think it is hardware related as I cannot find any evidence something is wrong.

We have several top server guys looking at it right now. Sorry no answers, but more hurry and wait. :(

It seems like every time after I attempt to make a post I get the server busy message now.

Thank goodness I found this thread. I was beginning to worry that this might be the norm around here. :(
