connection timed out
« on: October 22, 2007, 12:04:29 PM »
i was in the middle of making my CSS bid when the site connection timed out. (as a result, i had to make a late CSS bid.)

why did my connection time out? is there a way to fix this?

It's either your internet connection or the site (although I believe it's the internet connection, because I didn't have this problem when I submitted my CSS bids and didn't hear from anyone else who had a similar problem).  ALL internet connections do this sometime.  Nothing you can do about it.

I get random time outs every now and then on different sites.  I don't think it's the site.  I think it's just a random occurrence.

Does this happen to you here on a regular basis?  'Cause if it doesn't, that's an extremely weak and illogical argument.

...that doesn't even appear to be an answer to the right question.

well, like i said, i just started posting 5 days ago. i have never expericenced the timing out of a connection, likely because i dont visit many sites.

Then as far as I can tell, you have no reasonable basis to assume that any particular thing was the cause of the error.
