Forums dropping out.

by MarkFlax Forum moderator / December 5, 2010 7:57 PM PST

From 11:30 GMT onwards access to any forum seems to be dropping out regularly.

"Connecting to" times out with a generic browser "Problem loading xxxx " page.

Intermittent but regular.

Mark and anyone who encounters this.

Please do me a favor, next time this happens please get me a screen shot and a URL, and the exact time it occurred, so that I can have the engineers look into what's causing it

Thanks a bunch!

Yep, I will do that next time.

But this time I fixed it. Well, OK, I didn't fix it myself exactly, it just sort of worked! Happy

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
