Maybe it's just the way I browse (I hold shift and click on new topics in my "view new posts" page), but the first one i clicked on (The announcement about unclenorbert) brought up the following error:

Ian, you probably tried to connect during a database server reboot or cleanup or something. This looks like a simple connectivity problem between servers.
Like or not, no one has come up with the 100% uptime server yet.

John, as a suggestion, it might be an idea to replace the error messages above with a "user-friendly" version. Something like "The server is temporarily down for maintenance, please try again in a few minutes".
