Please, people, please read these instructions before griping on the forums! Griping might make you feel better, but it won't help make the problems go away! While I do read the forums, I don't read them religiously, so please send your reports directly to me via email. (So far, I've received a grand total of exactly *one* trouble report.)
I have been spending a lot of time on the forums during the past week, and so far I have not seen any problems that cannot be attributed to the problems described in my previously quoted message. As a result, I can only conclude that problems are network related, and that is why it is so important that I see a clean network connection to rule out network issues.
Another networking issue I failed to address previously is that of DNS. If you get an error like BugByte got, try pinging the IP address (188.8.131.52) directly. If you can ping via IP address but not by name, then you have a problem with your ISPs DNS (this is a rather common problem.)
Failing a real solution on the log thread issue, I do plan to institute a 1000 post limit on all threads. That is, any thread that reaches 500 posts will be closed for posting, and longer threads *may* be deleted from the archive entirely.
