I don't know if this is my computer or not, but after viewing a few threads whenever coming to PF, I get a "There seems to ba a problem with the Physics Forums database" error. Is everyone getting this?

I ain't "everyone," but, yeah, I've been getting it --- going on what? Six months or so --- however long it's been that Greg and Warren have been trying to get things to behave. It's almost as if there're timers on the connection, and counters on navigation steps --- n navigation steps, and your connection gets trashed --- clear your cookies and offline content, log back in, and it hasn't dumped the whole site, just you --- I've been wondering whether I should take it personally.

Yes, the database error and timing out problem have been very frequent for me too. While most of the time they last for a very short time, they occur frequent enough to be rather annoying.

I couldn't even drink my coffee this morning until PF came up.

It appears that the PF clock is lagging even further behind than before.

Data for them as can use it --- from 10 minutes ago to whatever the time stamp on this message, "database error." Could go anywhere else on the net --- looks like the site was up.

Is there a cookie problem?

Okay, this time "the bug" wiped out everyone but 23-4 users --- and, let me stay on --- trying to delete duplicates it created of a post --- but, at least it let me stay on. Had to log in for every navigation step in the post deletion process --- part of what has me thinking it's the Keebler Elves or Cookie Monster throwing rancid shredded coconut into the cookies.

We're aware of the problems and working on finding a solution.
