Default Problem with site, not sure where to post this

For the last few days every time I try to connect to MB I get:

This webpage is not available


I tried a few different browsers and they all say the same thing as well. This is the only site I'm having problems with, and I thought it was down for everyone or something. Today I tried a web proxy and seeing as I'm posting here I can get it to load through it. Not very convenient, though.

Anyone know how to fix this?

That happened to me for about two full days last week, it was a real pain.

And then out of nowhere it fixed itself and now I've been able to load up MB as normal for several days straight.

I don't get it.

Did you try clearing your cache?

I did. I flushed dns, cleared cache, messed around with firewall and restarted many times. None of that worked. I already tried resetting the router before, but I just did it again and now I'm oddly able to get on here without the use of a web proxy. It got worse and worse and fewer pages were loading randomly all around the web and everything was timing out, but for some reason now it's so fast that everything instantly loads faster than ever before. It's crazy.

I'm not gonna question the logic of all this so long as it keeps working. Hopefully I won't run into the problem again.

It's randomly happened to me before, but it fixed itself without doing any diagnosing. Next time it happens try a different web browser.

I've had this problem on my work computer this week for the first time. I tried it on my phone as well and it wasn't working so I thought that the site was down. But later on I tried it using LTE and it worked just fine. Maybe it's a problem with the Internet connection? That's the only time I've experienced it.
Studies show that when a given norm is changed in the face of the unchanging, the remaining contradictions will parallel the truth.

I'm having an issue where even though I've "read" the last post in a thread (via the "view last post" link) sometimes they still show back up in the "New Posts" search even though the thread has not been updated. Tried clearing the cache & cookies already.

I keep on having this problem and I just don't know what to do about it. I've unplugged my router, unplugged my computer, unplugged my modem, flipped every breaker in my house, called Tore to see how he thinks I should handle it, still just getting the same error message over and over. It's unbelievable, I'm getting to the point where my frustration is taking over my soul, which at one point was like a lovely flower but is now a shit-covered fartbox.

I think we need new moderators.

The ones we have now aren't doing their job and I am being victimized by this coding error and it's so frustrating that I don't know what to do.

Don't worry: tore's new system will ensure this never happens again. He guarantees it.
