I haven't had problems in the mornings, but three times this past week I've had problems in the evening - between 9 - 10:30PM EST.  Not able to access the site for over an hour.  Error message:

Connectivity problems for the last 2 hours here as well.  Really makes me antsy when I can't get my fix  ;D

Posted at 1:58 am but what time zone?  There are backups that are scheduled in the wee hours of the mornings that can definitely slow down the site...that's why they are scheduled during the hours of least activity online.

The site was down for me today (Australian Eastern Standard Time) between 2 and 3pm (approximately).

That's between midnight and 1am New York time, if that helps.

It went out last night around 9:30pm Central (USA) - I gave up and went to bed early - then read something else for a little while (Feist & Wurtz - Servant of the Empire - for those who want to know).
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I say more?

Same here.. central timezone.

Also, people have been posting on the facebook page when it does go down. It shows a bit of a pattern as to when.

The board has started being down in the mornings again for me. At about 7am GMT+1. Only for about 30-60 minutes - then it's back up again.

I've been having issues at about 1 to 2 pm Eastern daylight time the last week or so.  It never seems to be down long, though.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.

Anyone besides me having a sense of deja vu, because it seems to be happening again. It started for me about a week ago - taking either a long time to load pages, or the page won't load and I get this error:

Temporarily Unavailable
Due to high stress on the server the forum is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

It's happening at the same time for me as it was the last time - it starts roughly about 8:15am US Eastern Time.

I haven't had the board be totally unavailable, but it does slow down quite badly around the sort of time you're talking. It doesn't usually last long, though

I don't get the sentence about high stress and it happens about 7:15 central daylight time - I guess that would be the same time.
