This morning, when I go to read a specific thread, I've often beed greeted by a 430 Forbidden error on index.php; reloading gives me the actual page, so it's not a serious problem. It's not happened yet with forum pages; just with individual threads.

Is anyone else seeing anything similar?

interesting, what thread was it, and is it working now?
i think the forum server is just iffy.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

It was multiple threads; pretty much anything I tried, and it seems to be working a lot better now.

I've run into it before at heavy traffic times.  It always straightens out.  Fortunately I have enough things to keep me busy, that I don't get too upset at having to wait for 1/2 an hour or so.

I get the same thing as Russell — periods of ~10-20 minutes where the forums are unavailable. Seems like Steve upgrades the server(s), everything's running fine, then we get more people and everything breaks in about the same way again.

I Twitter. I also occasionally blog on the Escape Pod blog, which if you're here you shouldn't have much trouble finding.
