Maybe it's just me, but I often can't access the site. I find I have to refresh the homepage several times before it loads. Same with this forum quite often. Does anyone else have this problem? If so, I'd be really grateful if you'd post the time/date when you had trouble connecting. Then I'll contact our webhost with a list of failed connections and see what they do about it. Thanks.

I have this problem all the time, yes. Exactly as you describe, multiple refreshes before it loads...

I've never been able to get the auto-refresh to work, but I have only not been able to access the site once, and that's when the servers were down. I just manually refresh the page and it always has worked for me.

I've also been having this problem lately, especially on my iPhone.

I've now contacted our host and asked them to allow more bandwidth/connections.

Once again, I'm having problems connecting. Anybody else? I'm getting really sick of this. I heard so many good things about KnownHost, but their service has been poor to say the least.

I never have issues accessing the site from work, but I repeatedly have to refresh from home to get it to load. This would indicate there is something wrong with the DNS settings, I reckon, since it only appears to affect people on certain ISPs, hence some people encountering the problem and some not at all? It’s probably something that can be rectified server side, I’ll do a bit of research.

I've been having a lot of problems accessing this site lately. I think it's time to change hosts. :(

I am sometimes having problems, but it seems very intermittent and, in some cases, device specific. I found the other day I couldn't access it from my smartphone or my netbook, but the PC worked fine. I'm assuming that it was a bandwidth issue, but they were all tried within minutes of each other, and after one worked I tried the others but they still did not. Even cleared the local caches but wasn't until the next day that they suddenly sparked into life.
All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer.

I think it is a bandwidth whenever I am downloading large files and try to access the site, it's nearly impossible. However, most heavy sites are hard to load in that case.

The forum hasn't been working for me for around two months (I'm accessing it through a VPN service). It worked like a charm back in Brazil but here in Finland ...
