Hi kt6550, Madhatter and Don,

I finally realized what the issue was with the connection of v5.

The short version: There was a routing issue, and it's been fixed. You should be able to access the site consistently now.

The longer version for the curious:

I have two IP addresses coming into my house for webpage testing and general system testing as I work in IT. Unfortunately when requests came in for the site, they would sometimes return from the second IP instead of the first. When your computer receives a reply from a different IP than it sent the request to, it drops the response and ignores it as invalid. This was causing the issue. I have a solution that will allow me to fix this in the form of a different internet provider, however that will take a couple of weeks, so for now I have disabled on IP so traffic can only flow through one of them, which will prevent the issue from happening.
