Default Is it my computer...SLOW to check

I'm enjoying very much trying to solve some cryptograms. When I get lucky, it is disappointing that I'm not able to get it checked very quickly. Today I have been also stopped with a message that I'm not on the website. Does this happen to anyone else or is it just my computer? Thank you for any responses.

i occasionally get a delay of a few (or more) seconds after completing a cryptogram, but i don't think that adds to my solve time--concerned about that, a few years ago i timed several of my "solves" to see if the delays showed up in my time shown on the results page: they did not!

i don't know about the message you're getting--it doesn't sound familiar.

I've had a few similar problems in the past week or so. I'd lose the server for several minutes at a time. A server error or "bad gateway" is on the program's side. Your computer is probably fine. We rarely encounter malware on this site.
