Does anyone get this error message in IE or Firefox when trying to go to the forums?

There seems to have been a slight problem with the database.
Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

An E-Mail has been dispatched to our Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

It seems to happen like every 5 minutes. As Kurt eloquently put it, "The ESF SQL server goes down more than sean_'s mother."

-looks down- im not small...

Anyways, is there any way to fix this, or is it purely on the server until they resolve it?

Of course you're not ;)

I saw someone else post about this, but a mod closed it before anyone else could reply to it.

That's why I didn't ask. I get this all the time and it pisses me off. I'm like... "pfft fine, i'll just go play some Counter Strike" or something. Will this ever get fixed?

ESF has always been hosted by Greg (Oktagone Publishing), I doubt they would ever switch hosts as he's considered part of the dev. team and friendly with the team/administration.
