I am getting a few ERR_TIMED_OUT messages asying site can't be reached  army.ca took too long to respond. It might be due to my VPN slowing things down.

Website unable to connect notification or timing out. iPhone, safari, wi-fi & LTE.
(This login went smoothly, the last unsuccessful login attempt was approximately 1530 EST)

It won’t keep me logged in on a IPhone. I have to re-log in each time I visit.

Hmm....a pinball site I frequent just had those same problems.   It was a DNS attack from China
IF YOU REALLY ENJOY THIS SITE AND WISH TO CONTINUE,THEN PLEASE WIGGLE UP TO THE BAR AND BUY A SUBSCRIPTION OR SOME SWAG FROM THE MILNET.CA STORE OR IF YOU WISH TO ADVERTISE PLEASE SEND MIKE SOME DETAILS.

Everybody has a game plan until they get punched in the mouth.

Been hard to get on this site... seems that the site gets less reliable as the upgrades go on (although other posts indicate a coincidental DNS attack).  Hiding it being a cloud DNS service (like CloudFlare) might assist with this.  If it is slow I am going to try and kick my DNS over to 1.1.1.1 and see what happens.

I use 8.8.8.8 for DNS (Google) and have no problems.

When at work, I can't select my own DNS, and occasionally have access issues to multiple sites, not just army.ca.

Lots of "site can't be reached" errors today on Chrome and win 10.
Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats

I had problems trying to access army.ca this afternoon. At first I got a box saying about not being able to access system and that it was a "Database Error."

Closed my browser (Firefox) and tried again. Got a white field saying "Connection timed out" and a message at the bottom saying "Performing a TLS handshake with army.ca" then "Timed out."

Waited a minute or so and tried again and everything loaded no problems.
Years ago, fairy tales all began with, "Once upon a time." Now we know they all began with, "If I'm elected."

I was getting "database error" for quite the while. I used another browser and accessed the site without logging in and I could view the posts. I came back to the logged in browser and it gave me "database error" again.

There are still some issues with the site, related to the upgrade. The web service crashes and hangs on a pretty regular basis. It's set to automatically restart but still causes a couple minutes of downtime at each crash.

I may have to rebuild the server from scratch at some point.   :-\
