While it has worked for me at various times today, I have had issues connecting a few times.

Looks like the server is a lil overloaded today (or FT's ISP has some routing issues)

Was working fine for me this morning up until 0900 when I went to bed.

Using TPG is pretty bad, although having done some tests, does appear to be a networking issue somewhere between TPG and flyertalk. Can trace from TPG -> OPTUS -> SINGTEL -> QWEST -> VIAWEST, then it seems to die.

FT is working just fine now. (for me)

Maybe just a coincidence but possibly a little faster than it has for quite a while. :D :D

I have not had any problems over the last weekend using Telstra ADSL. Just a little slow at times, but not any worse than it has been over the last few months.

I've managed to get a few threads to show this morning (Monday), but mostly they are timing out.

No, I didn't have any problems whatsoever.

Possibly the issue with the OP is that they were using TPG ADSL, which gets little praise on the WHirlpool forums, and is generally regarded as one of the worst for broadband.
