You have probably seen "phpBB Critical error: could not connect to database" on this site. Well, for me, at least, this happens very often.

I am wondering if there is a reason, or is it just me? Is there anything I can do to stop this?

No, it's not you. For some reason, the server is experiencing higher than normal load (similar to that we had when Tiger was released) and that is causing MySQL connection errors. They appear to have gone away but we'll continue to try and figure out the source of the problem.

Right now we're working on load balancing the server so that requests can be handled without error, but if you see the error, just try to refresh the page and it should go through. If there's a time that's particularly bad, send me an e-mail at mattf@dashboardwidgets.com and the time that it was occurring (we process over 100 million queries a day, a timeframe is mildly helpful in finding a bad patch of queries), and it will help me resolve problems faster.
