    Yeah. I'm guessing it's due to excessive connections but I'm not sure why that would happen. Nothing much big going on AFAIK.

    It's been in trouble for a while now. Not a day goes by that it - or these forums - goes down after getting flakier for a while.

    Some serious maintenance is in order....

    I almost never visit the main site www.macrumors.com but instead, the forums: forums.macrumors.com

    So I guess that explains why I've been getting away with it more than you guys. :D

    All right done.

    Actually I got this message before:


    Warning: mysql_connect(): Host '192.168.1.4' is blocked because of many connection errors. Unblock with 'mysqladmin flush-hosts' in /home/macrumor/public_html/csspvt/cssdbinit.inc on line 8
    Unable to connect to database

    No Bandwitch I guess????
