Hmmm. I just tried that Richard and now I can’t log back in:-

Database Error :
Cannot open database “sotadata_db” requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user ‘sotadata_data’.

Perhaps Andy is working on it?

There have been some short outages recently. This appears to be at the hosting company. You may find that you’re in the middle of something and the database takes an age to respond, or you can’t get the page to display at all. Within a short period everything starts working perfectly. I finally managed to be in the right place at the right time and got some further info which can be given to the hosts to help narrow down the problem.

If you have problems, search the reflector archives first as you should find an explanation or workaround for all of the common problems in there. If you can’t find a fix or are still having problems then mail me at mm0fmf_sota AT intermoose.com and put the word DATABASE in the subject. Include what you were doing, what happened and most importantly the time and date this happened. If you mail me then all the problems get collected in one place and I don’t have to hunt about the reflector for problem reports. I’m less likely to miss anything this way.
