Default What's up with the boards?? (Oct.20 & 21)

I'm having a very hard time reading and posting - I keep getting the message "server is too busy, try again later". I had to refresh over and over just to get here. Is this a temporary problem, or are they always bogged down like this now? (and yeah, I know this is the wrong section, but it's the only one I could get to)

It is very unusual. I have had the same problem accessing by cell phone. Switching to laptop worked but that could have been a coincidence.

It's a temporary problem. The site is normally very reliable and accessible.

I haven't had any problems myself, but that's really weird about the abnormally high "guest" activity.

On my Opera browser just now:

Secure connection: fatal error (40) from server.

https://forum.lowcarber.org/index.php?

Failed to connect to server. The reason may be that the encryption methods supported by the server are not enabled in the security preferences.

WhaaaaaaT? That's just crazy, there's no way it's real people.
Are they trying to crash the site? Is that what happened a couple of weeks ago when it went offline for a full day?
