Yes, got that too with my usual bookmark, but when I entered "www.qi.com" in the browser, and clicked on "Talk" - no problems.

Whu?!

It usually means that the hosting company is rebooting the database server. It happens occasionally and is completely outwith our control. However, it rarely lasts for long and you can always try again after a few minutes.

OK thanks. I thought as much, and you're right, it didn't last very long.

That explains it. Could it also occur if the database server has hung.

Yep, it basically means there's a problem with the database in some way.

You'll get the same error message if the database server encounters wormhole produced by the LHC and accidentally slips forward in time by a few minutes.

In my experience, these tend to be brief and fleeting. Much like life, really. Be philosophical about it. This too shall pass.

This isn't an error as such, but sometimes when I post the thread is still marked in orange for "unread". I go into the thread and then click the link for the index, and it's still orange. Nothing major, but quite irritating at times. Has this happened to anyone else?

If this is the same problem as I've seen, the way to fix it is to log out, remove any qi.com related cookies from your browser, and then log in again.

Thanks, I'll try that when it becomes too much.
