I've had this six times in the past 5 minutes. What does it mean?
it's all going a bit pear shaped this evening.
I've got it too.
The Web server (running the TES Web site) is currently unable to handle the HTTP request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay.
I suspect that there is some minor maintenance taking place on the TES site, but not enough to shut it down.
I refresh the page and it disappears
If I can offer my engineering experience to those for whom it may concern, there's probably a key that occasionally needs to be wound up to keep the site going like clocks do.
When I was a kid my parents acquired a wind-up gramophone which I loved to listen to as the mechanism slowed down and the voices got deeper.
I'd have loved it more if my efforts to wind it up at speed had resulted in the singists sounding like chipmonks, but sadly that never happens on a wind-up gramophone and my life in engineering has been able to know me why.
@Duke of York close. It's the gerbils that missed their feeding time - we're working on ensuring that all the gerbils are fed on time. One ran away and you know how it goes; everything just goes a bit pair shaped.
Some issues on one or two threads where contentious pictures were placed? (I didn't report, but as I was typing, got these moderator notes)....
I usually switch any IT equipment off and then back on again if things are not working and that works for me. However, I did wonder why my SBM got so annoyed recently when I switched the server off
I try to log in, type in my details - correctly - and it takes me back to Log In. Today there was only one window of opportunity.
Do you mean that another one went with it and the pair of them eloped?
I love homophones.
Never trust a gerbil
Pretty pear-shaped all the time, frankly.
Are we talking tamagotchi here?
