    To the mods,.... for me personally, it works out best & I like coming in to Plowsite around midnight my time (Alaska Standard Time, 4 AM, Eastern Time). But for the last couple weeks, more times than not,... I have trouble trying to post, or read up on things posted during the day, at this time of night, (never at any other time),... because I get the "server too busy" message,... sometimes for about half an hour or so,... yet I know that the site is less busy then that at any other time of day. Why is that? Are you guys doing daily maintenance on the site during this time? (the moderators are almost never signed in at that time). Just wondering if there is a daily schedule happening at night, or something else going on,... so I can adjust my viewing time, and not sit here trying trying to post or read & being stuck,.... and maybe I can change the time when I come on. If there is a time during the night when things are temporarily "out of order" for a few minutes or so, it might help the other few night owls if we all knew,.. so we could avoid it,.... thanks! :waving:

    I emailed MJD about this about a week ago. I chalked it up as routine maintenance. Very annoying though. It seems as though we went through the same thing about this time last year.
