Default Wattflyer Server Connection Problems

Has anyone else been seeing Wattflyer.com come and go?? To me it seems like the server is down. I just get a connection problem message from IExplorer. It's happened at both home and work for about a week. It's usually back in a couple of hours, but gone for at least a 1/2 hour. When this is happening I can get to any other web site I want to. It happened again tonight around 7:30 PM EDT.

The next time it happens I'll try to ping it and do a couple of quick connection tests.

We've been having server problems for a few days now. Marc's been trying to sort things out for us.

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

I'm on satellite so not connecting is not unusual for me, but when I can't get in even with my WebTV then I know something is wrong. It's been down a couple of times within the last week or so.

Yes for some reason the site goes offline. I have to restart the server to bring it back. We will be moving to new hardware soon so it should solve this
