Was this site down this morning 5/10?

I had trouble logging on to this site this morning. It gave me a database error message. Just wanted to know if it was the site or my computer. Did others have this problem?

I experienced the same problem yesterday.
Iím not much on seizing the day. I just kind of poke it with a stick.

I had problems this morning too, using the app. It said something like "Oops... network error!"

I just do something else. How much am I paying to use this site?

I had the database error the morning of Saturday May 10th when I tried to access from 11-11:15am EDT. I gave up for a while. I ended up restarting my browser for other issues a while later and then remembered to retry At this point it was working again.

Not sure if the solution was wait for a while, restart browser, or both.

my 2 cents

That database error thing has been going on for several days now. It doesn't seem to last longer than about 15 - 20 minutes, but that's only after I land here and discover it.

I got the database error yesterday (May 9th) and again this morning. I waited about an hour yesterday and five minutes today, tried again, and the problem had resolved itself. I was a little worried there was something wrong with my computer, given all the recent viruses and hacks and security issues in the news - I'm relieved it is the site and not my computer!

If you're not sure, try this.... - Is Early-retirement Down Right Now?

Use it for any site when there's a question.

Learn something everyday! I had no idea that site existed. Thanks.
If it is after 5:00 when I post I reserve the right to disavow anything I posted.
