Just to convince you this isn't a late April's Fools story...

This little down time has happened three times since my initial post. I don't go looking for the issue but I do run into it repeatedly because my schedule has me on the Forum in the morning, consistently in the eight-hour, Mountain time. Here's the three most recent instances with some extra detail. All times are according to the computer as shown on the Desktop.

20 Aug: the computer sat and 'grinded' while it tried to connect to the Forum 0822 - 0827.

30 Aug: again, long time trying to connect, this time to the Songs page, 0825 - 0826.

1 Sep: grinding, "Waiting for response" shown by my browser then a page showing, "Error 524 - Host Error. Ray ID: 50f7e7985bb0bb34, 2019-09-01 14:23:53 UTC." Connection attempt was at 0822, connection made showing Forum page at 0826.

This doesn't happen at any otther time or on any other sites. The common times of the timeouts lead me to think something is going on at the Guitar Tricks site/server.

Enquiring minds want to know...
