I have noticed intermittent outages. None that I noticed has lasted more than an hour or two. I assume it's just glitches at the service provider.
I am not a Facebook fan, but Mr. Simmons's (perceived) shift to Facebook is one reason why I started to actually log in to it. Although the participation level on this forum seems to have dwindled [again, maybe just my perception], I prefer it to Facebook as it seems like a nice place for readers to interact.
1. I always feel as if I am intruding in Mr. Simmons's personal space when I post on his Facebook page.
2. Finding and conducting discussions on Facebook seems difficult to me.
I don't see much activity on Reddit's "r/DanSimmons" or "r/Hyperion".
