Melanie Wong Feb 22, 2014 09:08 AM

A new error message as I try to access the boards this morning.

    It lasted about a minute or so for me. No biggie.

      It's continuing for me. 1 out of 2 times I try to open a page this morning or try to post a reply.

        Right after I wrote that, it disappeared again for a minute or so. I'm going outside now to do some gardening while the goings good, but maybe elsewhere the weather has everyone else inside, on the computer?

      Not many posts have been loading for a typical Saturday morning. I'm sure the techie nirds are aware that Houston has a problem.

        Maybe something to do with the giant interactive movie screen that is suddenly appearing on the top half of the website?

          Thanks all for the reports. We're working on figuring out these issues, and hopefully will have solutions soon,

            Just a quick note that I took down a couple of long sub-threads of chat here. We try not to moderate much on Site Talk unless discussions get ugly, but when people are reporting site problems, overwhelming the thread with chat makes it harder for us to gather information about the problems or let people know when they're resolved.

              Just got the message again: "This website is under heavy load

              We're sorry, too many people are accessing this website at the same time. We're working on this problem. Please try again later."

                As did I, Ruth. But hitting F5 to refresh, I got my log-in page and was able to log in without a problem.
