Cloudfare regularly taking over. Normal?

I've noticed that Cloudfare replaces the forum quite regularly, about once every 1-2 days.

Is that normal? Is the forum really down then?

I've noticed the same problem. Happened yesterday and today for periods of 15 minutes.

Happened for me most of yesterday as well didn't seem to be that useful a service for a forum though as it just told me it had no cache for each link I did try.

Seems to be fine at the minute though and back to normal for myself anyway.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Happened to me too yesterday and today as well. I cleared my cache to make it disappear yesterday and restarted firefox to make it go away today.

Kinda annoying.

Happened to me most of yesterday... I think the forum might actually be down for a purpose not accidental...

Arn tweaked some things this morning, this should be happening less frequently.
