Not sure what’s going on, but it appears my webhost is having a spot of trouble with the mySQL database today. Every so often ExpressionEngine is unable to connect to the database and gives an error saying so, but hitting refresh once or twice usually sorts it out. Earlier today one of the tables related to security checks done when leaving a comment became corrupted which halted all commenting until I got around to repairing it. I’ll check with my hosting provider to see if they’re aware of the problem. So bear with us for a little while.
