It just goes down every once in a while. If Wildhoney gives a damn about this site he is doing a great job hiding it so I doubt it will be resolved any time soon. Hell, he hasn't logged in for well over a month and hasn't posted in about three months.
Wildhoney, is busy at the moment, that's why he hasn't been online. But no worries, The Moderators are working very hard to keep, Everything running as smooth as possible.
I'm sure he is, but I'm loosing faith that he is going to come back at some time and start getting this site off the ground. I appreciate the staff's efforts but having been staff on an abandoned forum (talkfreelance.com) myself I know that can only do so much. I've been here myself, Salathe and I were basically alone in running talkfreelance until it was bought within an inch of crashing down. To this day I think we did a great job, but we could only do so much since it was not our site. All that kept Sal and I going was knowing that the site was going to be sold and the new owner would take initiative. What is the hopeful future for talkPHP (that was not rhetorical, I'm actually asking)?

Don't talk to me as if I don't know know anything about hosting by telling me how things work in the "real world." I've had better uptime on server I've paid $3 a month for. This site routinely goes down for hours, often for days (a week is the most I remember). Whoever we are hosted on clearly does not have a grip on uptime and we should switch.
ps. Use MS word for your posts, whatever you type your messages in causes unnecessary line breaks.
But no worries, the moderators are working very hard to keep everything,

Not all of us.
I check in on the site on average twice daily (except over the holidays), and generally leave disappointed after a quick perusal of the "new posts" listing, if there are any new posts made. As far as moderation is concerned very, very little happens… in the region of one or two spam bots per month or so to tidy up after. The moderators, at least myself, have nothing whatsoever to do with the upkeep of the server(s), services, or the site at all.
We are trying to get everything in order but as you said it's hard
when we are not in full control of everything but we at the talkphp staff
are still here we are trying are best to get some stability to this site.
Also i apologise if i in anyway offended you with my comment about "in the real world".
