Anyone else noticing that clicking links on forums.mozillazine.org to pages on forums.mozillazine.org, as well as clicking the post Preview button, sometimes results in just spinning "Connecting"? Almost as if forums.mozillazine.org just goes down for 15-seconds or so every so often...

Haven't hit this with typing forums.mozillazine.org URL in the address bar (yet?).


EDIT Earlier the status bar said "Connecting to forums.mozillazine.org...", when this happened, now it's saying "Waiting for forums.mozillazine.org"...

EDIT2 When it finally finishes, the page does load...

Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

I had not previously seen this happening here... but then again, perhaps it's because I haven't been here all that long really...

:biggrin: I did not know that.
I used to know some tuba players who would think this is very cool.

(And yes it does take a lot of talent and lungs to play a tuba. I knew one tuba player who used to actually black out while playing tuba, because the breathing was so difficult for him.)

Twice today already (hadn't seem it much before today--once or twice maybe) -- preview, submit, whatever.

Hey, Mozilla... are you sure you wish to do this? (bug 1121291)
