Problems connecting to the forum
« on: December 19, 2013, 11:05:33 PM »
For three days now, half the time I try to connect to the forum I get the message:

Connection Problems

Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.

Is this something others are experiencing, or just me??
Photobucket has now re-destroyed my pictures, so the first half of my collected works thread is no longer working again. To see my website version of the campaign thread, with fully functioning pictures, please go to https://bigsmallworlds.com/

Not half the time, but it happens.
It is not enough to have no ideas of your own; you must also be incapable of expressing them.

We appear to have a host who has oversold the capacity.

If I understand the info from Bugman and Grutch.

It seems to happen regularly - you find a host, and after a year or so it starts getting clogged up and you have to find another one.
I think it is called greed - it wouldn't happen under communism  :engel:
