I've been ranting about this for a few weeks via PMs and email to a few other members I know personally... It has been spotty. I'm on a four and a half meg cable line and was frequently getting connection messages when trying to open pages or post, no problems anywhere else- just this site. Yet while I was having problems, others who were on slower connections seemed to be having none. Kinda odd.
