I'll chime in and join the crowd. Me too, a reload fixes it. With Chrome I get the website unavailable error, Firefox, just a blank page. Maybe its the new monkey admin swinging from the server cables

Looks like we've identified the problem. Might be a very brief period of downtime tonght as it's fixed.

We run a bit of a non-standard web server. Litespeed instead of Apache. A recent update seemed to introduce a bug that served some 503 errors and blank pages. The latest update (which we're now running) is suppose to have fixed it. If not, we'll roll back to a stable release. Please let me know if there continue to be any blank pages, or 503 (server too busy) errors.

I still haven't had any... and I'm on GTG a lot! (Though admittedly I volunteered for 8 hours today at the Farmers' Market, so I haven't been on very recently.)

I'm on usually 14 hours a day if not more.
I'm logged in always unless rebooting my system or switching over to Windows 7 for the day.

The 503 errors have gone missing from the logs. I think I'll wait to see if others report any issues before deciding whether to revert.

I haven't gotten any blank pages recently, but I've had something else weird happening in the past 2 weeks or so. When browsing from my phone, it will suddenly throw an error about the page I'm requesting being large for the device, yet I can go right back to same page and it will load with no problem. This did not use to happen.

That's what she... nm. :)

It seems there are still some issues with the latest builds of Litespeed. I'll have the server admin revert back to a known stable release when he gets a chance.
