    I've had a moderate amount of trouble with the site recently, but I suspect that it's entirely due to my being in China, where the amount of control exercised over what one can access is absurd.

    I couldnt access it yesterday for about half-hour. Other sites were working.

    Yes, yesterday early morning for somewhere around one hour, I could not get in.

    Yes, it was definitely down for an hour, I checked APUG where we usually announce this, but I didn't bother, and neither did anyone else, did they?

    Nope. Maybe folks finally have come to the realization that they can live without one online forum for a while. Or are they just lazy?

    I did pretty much the same thing. Last post was in 2013 - so I wondered if it was just me. Then I re-checked and was reading something else until I saw it back on again about an hour later.

    I suppose the next time, I'll just drop a note anyways.

    The system backup process sometimes extends into early business hours, depending on which time zone you happen to be in, so the forum may be virtually unavailable, even though it is still "up".

    Aha. Yes, that makes sense - the software might decide not to service any requests.
