Last 3 days I have been receiving an SQL error when trying to load the site -- it only seems to be happening in the period of 2pm - 2.30pm my time (starting approximately 50 minutes ago at time of posting). The message says to inform site of the above code except there is no code. In my stupidity I forgot to screen capture but will do so if it reoccurs again.

I've also seen this - it normally seems to only last 10-15 minutes at a time.

Ick.. what time zone are you? I have a lot of once a day processes running in the early wee hours of the morning (which really only applies to the U.S. though)

UTC/GMT +10

Which would be your early morning in US

@Michael

Noticed you pop on so started logging on and off during this period at random times

At 2.24pm my time started noticing a slowdown in switching to different threads. Logged off. Hit the SQL error trying to log in at 2.27pm was finally able to get in just after 2.40pm.

I'm also at +10:00gmt. If this can't be avoided, is there any way of at least giving a friendlier error message? As-is it just looks like a crash rather than something intentional.

I get this error pretty consistently too, around 10:30ish pm (MDT; UTC−06:00).

I was getting this last night. Got it when I was trying to load up 3 files links at once and thought I broke the site! Anyway, it was late PM early AM in eastern time.

Just an update: I'm getting this very consistently, every night at around 10:30pm (MDT; UTC−06:00). I don't know what concerns me more: the fact that GameDev goes down every night with this error at the same time, or that I've finally realized I habitually check this site, and I usually check it within the minute of 10:30pm...
