Is anybody else getting this error?


Or have I got some work to do on my computer?

Thats a server side error -- if it keeps happening, report it in the bugs section of the forums, otherwise just wait a bit -- should be back to normal shortly.

I'm not, neither last night when you posted, nor this morning. However, you didn't provide a URL to try to reproduce the error.

It was random. got it on about half of the new questions.
Ah, ha. That's a great clue!

With the Answers section, much more than elsewhere, I have noticed that I'bles servers are very poorly syncronized. I can do a hard refresh of the "recent" page and not infrequently the latest, or even a couple of the latest, question will simply disappear. A couple more refreshes and it comes right back.

Here's a possible theory: With all of the cross-referencing, dynamic linking, and whatnot buried in the pages, you might be hitting a situation where the page is displayed by one server, but when you fetch a question is comes from a different server that doesn't yet know it exists.

Yes! I'm getting the same message.
