It gave me the below error message when I tried to get on the site.

Could not establish database connection. Please check the username,
password and hostname in the config file, and if necessary set up the
appropriate MySQL user and privileges.

Yeah, the site went extremely slow for me at moments.
This happened today.
It just happened again for a few minutes....
It's just happened to me once again, and I'm getting lag while I type this. Weird.

Thanks for letting me know. I've sent an angry email to my host >:(

Looks like the downtime was close to 2 hours which is pretty ridiculous...

Lol i would love to see the email :P
It wasn't really that angry, though I did ask for some compensation, given that they have a 99.99% uptime guarantee.
Your host?
