... when I try to access this site today. And sometimes its just for an icon or two, other times the whole page gives me a DNS error. This site only. Is there an issue and is anybody else experiencing this?

I had issues today in some of the threads, pieces were missing here and there. Like where someone's avatar should have been I could see the background... or at the bottom of the page where the currently viewing piece is the white was missing and the black background was present.

This is all very odd. I moved DNS hosting to the Amazon cloud, so it should be one of the most reliable DNS services.

I sure hope they aren't facing any DDoS attacks.

Let me know if this continues for another day.

WTF is a DNS error?
Domain Name Services. Loosely speaking, it's the bit that translates human-readable names like forums.canadiancontent.net into addresses the computers understand. When it gets things wrong, your browser won't be able to find pages, or bits of pages, or follow links correctly.

Thank you.
