Jeffrey Smith: you are missed!

Wow, this is sad to read.

I notice other regular forum members who are absent; perhaps having similar issues?  I was just chatting with another absent member who is having the same problem. :-[

A question for admin's: are these issues being worked on?

Thanks.

Edit: just saw the other thread (missing members).  Some of this was answered there.

A long hiatus is beneficial! Trust me! 
That being said I also find the current server issue frustrating. Today has been a good connectivity day so I hope the trend continues. I can definitely see how the inability to connect to the forum can cause this kind of issue. I wonder if it is related to one's OS and overall setup? SO the connectivity varies between members? I was under the impression that the server was down or unable to respond to all?

Hmm, as soon as I tried to post the above I was unable to connect. Go figure!!!   Well, the solution is to turn off one's computer and listen to a good recording or go and frolick outside!   8)

I'm surprised to hear there are still issues. I haven't had any troubles at all, even for a moment, and I live in Taiwan.  I use Chrome as my browser. Could that be related?
It's all good...

No. I use Chrome as well. It is a DNS issue. I was plagued (severely) until I changed it....
