No problems on this end browsing from a Windows 10 laptop (using wireless connection to router) on Chrome.  The site is noticeably faster than before for me.

I'm sorry to hear that the server change has caused problems for some, though.

71 dB is reporting good access > 90 %
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

Veit Bach-a baker who found his greatest pleasure in a little cittern which he took with him even into the mill and played while the grinding was going on. In this way he had a chance to have the rhythm drilled into him. And this was the beginning of a musical inclination in his descendants. JS Bach

Also noted this morning when I checked this that I am now getting full screen Forum on my phone instead of the non-compliant jammed-up screen. Not sure when that happened because I don't forum on my phone much anyway, and especially when it was so difficult to read.

I'm getting excellent connectivity on both my devices since the move (it's making me feel a bit guilty actually knowing that some of the other members are having problems). :-[

Devices:

Laptop with Windows 8 using Chrome as default browser.
iPad using Chrome as default browser.

All good here. And the slight delay after posting has gone.

Yeah, same short period of being unable to connect - but preceded by a cached version with older messages and a few avatars I haven't seen in a while.

That message indicates you connected to the server but the server was having trouble reading its data. I.e., maybe the database server crashed and the database of posts was inaccessible.
