Most of the day today I have not been able to connect to PBS -- just this site, I am not having a problem with any other sites... Has anyone else had this problem today?

I know the last time this happened to me, PBS had had a mention in People Magazine and PBS flooded with new people coming to the site. Is it just me or have others had troubles connecting today?

I am now able to connect, after approximately 2 hours of not being able to. No problems this morning or early afternoon. I think my page looks a little "cleaner," some of that facebook gobbledegook might have vanished...perhaps it was causing a problem?

I was browsing the forums a few hours ago when PBS suddenly cut out on me but now I'm back on with no trouble.

I had problems earlier when I tried to get on as well. Still seems kind of slow-going at the moment but at least the blue and gold is back! LOL

Whew, thought it was my computer. Wonky a bit just now when I tried getting on.

I couldn't get on for several hours yesterday, either.   I was in the middle of manually entering a non-ISBN book when the site just timed out and wouldn't load up again.
