Q: If I can't connect, how often can I retry?

A: While the internet is considered to be reliable and stable, there can be a number of technical problems that will make any web page be unavailable for some period of time. If you have a problem getting connected to My Alembic, and you are not receiving some specific error message, then the problem may be temporary and you will be able to connect to the site again fairly soon. There is no issue as to how often you retry, and you will not create a problem in your system, or "tie up" anything with the Internet or your service provider. Just keep retrying as often as you wish. Keep in mind that if yours is a temporary problem, it could be caused by the remote server, an Internet connection, your internet service provider (ISP), a bad phone line, etc. Everyone experiences these occasionally, but it should not be the norm for you.
