I'm getting a funny error message.

I have to problems when I open a thread that I've opened in the past.

When I attempt to open any thread that I have not ever opened, I get this:

503 Service Unavailable

The server is temporarily busy, try again later! Powered By LiteSpeed Web Server (http://www.litespeedtech.com/)

All other functions seem to be fine. Any ideas? Anyone?

I've been getting it too, what's really weird is that I get when using our desktop, but I don't get ever when using our wireless laptop or my crackberry.

Ok - on the laptop now, and no issues. Hmmmmmm...

Any of you brilliant computer-literate folks have suggestions?

Still going on. Laptop good. Desktop balky.

No suggestions?

They'll tell you how to fix the problem. Basically it means that not all of your services are operational.

an HTTP response with a status code of 503 SERVICE UNAVAILABLE means, according to the HTTP standard:
10.5.4 503 Service Unavailable

The server is currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay. If known, the length of the delay MAY be indicated in a Retry-After header. If no Retry-After is given, the client SHOULD handle the response as it would for a 500 response.

Note: The existence of the 503 status code does not imply that a server must use it when becoming overloaded. Some servers may wish to simply refuse the connection.Fundamentally, it means that the web server to which your request was addressed (www.woodenboat.com) is busy or otherwise occupied.

The problem is not in your set -- your web browser -- although there is very slim chance that your web browser is somehow issuing a malformed request that causes the WBF server to choke unexpectedly.
