    The site keeps on going to "page cannot be displayed" or something like that.

    I keep on having to close the window or refresh, or something like that.

    Looks like the disruption was caused by maintenance on the servers. It looks like there was a small issue with the maintenance which caused there to be a couple of times where the site was unavailable for several minutes. These problems were unexpected and so we were unable to warn you about them before hand.

    There are now plans in place to avoid the problems that happened should we need to do a similar bit of maintenance on the servers again.

    Solr timed out. It's likely busy. Please try again later.

    Solr powers the search function... what were you trying to do? It's not an uncommon error.

    I was getting it (at the time I posted) whenever I tried to view all of someone's posts (including my own). Didn't do any more extensive tests. Seems fine now.

    Don't worry about it, I'm sure I'd give myself permission to stalk me if I knew about it.

    Whoa...that seriously starting to look like a pattern - noticed the times?

    I think this really needs to be looked in to.

    Please do keep reporting if/when you have any more slowness, even at about 2:15-2:30am.

    Guys, we've noticed some site backups which might have been the cause of the slowness you were experiencing around 2:30am on several days recently. These backups have been adjusted and we didn't see any of you reporting problems last night, which might mean the problems are fixed.

    Please do let us know if you experience any further slowness on the site, especially if it's around 2:15am-2:30am.
