When attempting to answer this question this morning, I am getting timeouts. It took me several minutes to compose the answer - is there a time limit on that maybe? FireFox 9.0.1 (I'm on Win7) gives me the classic "Connection Reset" error, while Chrome 16.0.912.77 m gives me:
Error 7 (net::ERR_TIMED_OUT): The operation timed out.
I have cleared caches, logged out of GIS.se, restarted both browsers, nothing works. Hell, I even tried IE9 (which shows true desperation), and got a timeout there as well. When I go back to the post, I always see part of my original answer in the composition box:
But again, that is only part of the answer that I was trying to submit.
This has occurred before, but I shrugged it off as a glitch. It seems like no matter what I try, I will not be able to post the answer.
Also, found this post on meta.so that looks like the same issue from Sept 2011.
I was able to post the answer from a different machine, at home to be precise, so a different network as well.
