Although it seems to be fixed now, I still want to tell you about my side of this hiccup.
I first noticed something amiss late last night (local time ca. 23.40 hours) when I got the time out warning only trying to refresh my already existing connection wit SotT to get the latest updates on the news just before going to bed. Therefore I didn't have the time left to signal it here at that moment. Sorry about that.
This afternoon (around 17.00 hours local time) I tried to access SotT for the first time thereafter.
Now, I first got the time out warning again. I subsequently cleared my cache (Firefox) and tried again.
This time round the front page loaded albeit awfully slowly and with many errors, especially in the photographs and videos sections as well as other pictures like logos, buttons and banners. After refreshing again several times consecutively, I finally managed to get a complete front page and didn't encounter any problems after that.
Hope this helps a bit. :)
