    Not working for me since yesterday afternoon (17-Dec-07) until this morning (18-Dec-07). I wanted to look at a couple of their instruction sheets in preparation for my 2008 resolution to find a pyro-based developer to use in my Jobo.

    Anyone else able to get through to the site?

    I had a "Service Unavailable" message around 10:30AM EST.

    Now I can get in.

    I still can't at 1:34pm CST.
    FireFox 2.0.0.11 and IE7.0.5730.11

    Did all the usual things like dump cookies, history & cache, reset DNS server connection...

    For those of you who did get a connection, dump your cache and to force a reload of the page. Still gets in?

    Not an emergency for me but this is annoying...

    It's up, it's down, no wait, it's up again! 1:46pm CST

    Problem seems to be with their service provider. I think if it was a DNS server issue, I'd be getting a 404 or similar error page instead.

    I've had this problem with a number of websites, inc APUG, and it seems often to be routing problems rather than the sites themselves.

    In a previous case I raised an issue of a website not being available and David Goldfarb could access it whereas I couldn't.

    In my experience, if it is a routing problem (DNS, etc) then you usually get one of the canned messages from your browser or it shows you the HTML error code. In this instance, I got a blank page (served it seems by the the Formulary's service provider) with just "Service Unavailable" in large type. So that looks to me like a problem at the source and not in the stream.

    Anyway, it has been up now the last few attempts.

    Thanks to all who checked the page.

    It would seem to be another day of up and down. I think it may be their site server. Wait a while and try again. Repeat as needed...
