Cool TOTV not available ????

Over the past few weeks, there have been times, usually in the morning, where I am not able to get to TOTV. I just get the screen saying the website is not available. Happened this morning from about 6:30 until around 9:00.

Is anyone else having this problem? I am able to get to all other websites and I have used 2 different browsers, with the same results... Seems it's only TOTV I have problems accessing.

Thanks.....

Default Me too!

The only way I could get here this morning was to go back to my "history" browser. (on my MAC) Today has been my first experience with this. I thought it might be a server glitch....

From time to time, there are problems with the server. Sometimes it's an overload that causes our Central Processing Unit to crash. We go into panic mode working with our server provider when that happens. We work as hard and fast as possible to get it back up for you.

We are faced with the possibility of having to move up to a much larger server because of the traffic that TOTV gets. The cost is something that we are really concerned about. It's a very expensive jump to the size that we probably need. We're trying to figure out how to do that without breaking the bank.

I had trouble tonight Friday March 4 and couldn't launch TOTV. There was about an hour of emptiness until I connected somewere around 6:30. Sounds like a larger server might be in needed. I know of the price difference and as most business try to survive, nobody wants to increase operating expenses. I can't offer a solution.
