    A first for me, I had got a 503 when trying to log back in today at 13:34 EDT. Literally on login page. The site must be very popular today!

    Login page? Why would you ever log out!

    Yes, as it happens, I do not log out either.

    :D Indeed. But...

    1. To get some work done when the work requires full attention or both hands plus a bunch of machinery aside from a laptop.

    2. To avoid getting banned for saying exactly what I think in dock workers' terms.

    3. Repair of inadvertent logout: after getting annoyed over reading something in some newspaper I sometimes accidentally quit my browser instead of just closing a tab. I intentionally do clear everything when quitting, so I can catch myself out that way and it happens more often the past few years. I may have to rethink how I do my settings. :)

    Yet another "503 Error" flashed up at me around half an hour ago as I was composing a post in the "What is for Dinner?" thread in the Community Section.

    :D Doubtless because it's one of the most fun and busiest threads. :D

    Yes, it is a terrific thread, agreed. Great fun and very interesting, too.

    Another '503 Error' has just greeted me in the 'espresso enthusiasts' thread.

    Seeing "503 Errors" while composing posts and editing posts, let alone trawling threads.

    Yeah, I've been getting them as well. This morning it caused me to double post then it cut me off (for a short time) for spam control.

    Tripped over yet another last night (in the wines and beers thread), and noticed that the site is slow enough to load today.

    A '503' Error showed its pretty face just now in the 'espresso enthusiasts' thread.
