4. If that's the case, why did I have it yesterday but not today.

I didn't change anything.

5. DU has to partially shut down to prevent crashing

They put a governor on the site to reduce server strain when traffic gets heavy. When it REALLY gets bad, like on election day, almost everything will disappear except the basic format.

But they have done such a great job updating servers and software over the years I am betting there will be no crashes this time around.
