Wasabi - this is a little "thing" we had loaded into the DC program so those living in the beautiful state of Hawaii had something to bring them down to reality!

You know I'm kidding, I think MJ was just joking when he told me that!

It has happened to me too recently. Andy R is doing everything he can to make things run smoother.

Wasabi....it MUST be our Apples. I am haunting DC as I am on the computer a lot right now. I punch reload when my other pages are loading and get the exact same safari error as you.

It happens a lot, at least twice daily.....but then resolves quickly. I usually find if it persists I can lip in through clicking the link on an email alert to a new posting.

I blame the Mac for anything that goes wrong, lol.

I'd been getting the database error message occasionally. Early this morning I was getting it constantly and discovered I could access the site at http://www.discusscooking.com/forums/ even though http://www.discusscooking.com/ consistently resulted in the error.

Database problem

Skilletlicker posted the same "fix" I just stumbled across. Of note, the database problem occurs on another of Andy R's sites I frequent (airstreamforums) at the same time it happens here.

While I doubt there is a conspiracy, I thought I would mention it.

I have a correctly sized jpeg of the screen I see, but the database does not appear to be in the mood to upload it.

The words seen on the jpeg are, "There seems to have been a problem with the Discuss Cooking database.
Please try again by clicking the Refresh button in your web browser.

An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, whom you can also contact if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience."
