When Radio3 starts up, if there's a failure to connect with the server, rather than present a confusing display with no posts in the history table, we show a simple message saying there was a failure to connect with the server, and ask that the user reload the page.

This can happen when you have a bad Internet connection or when the server crashes. Which happens sometimes. It's usually a matter of a few seconds before it reboots. (Like Radio3 the server is new software, and hasn't been fully burned-in yet.)

Here's what the screen looks like.

Thanks to Michael Lopez for great help tracking down this issue.
