First the error report :
Now his reply:
Description: Woke up to the alarm at 6:30 am. Got my son out of his crib, handed him to my wife. OJ + medication + forgot to take my multivitamin. Checked my email, Twitter, etc. Did a couple posts. Showered but didn't shave. Took care of my son while my wife went to the gym. He played on the floor a bit, we laughed and giggled together a lot. Good times. Then he got hungry so I fed him while watching Honey I Shrunk the Kids on cable. When my wife got home around 10am, I put him down for a nap, packed up my bag, and left for work. N train to Canal then a 5 minute walk to the office. Worked on some PHP for a couple of hours, making less progress than I would have liked. Caught a baby mouse in a drinking glass at the office. Went to get lunch with the gang. First and second choices no good, but ended up at an Italian bakery/deli on Mott. Turkey and provolone on a roll with mayo and lettuce, Pepsi, and potato chips (sour cream and onion). Gave leftover sandwich to the baby mouse, AKA "Feedy". Sat back down at my desk. Selected "iToner" from bookmarks list and waited. Error number NSURLErrorDomain:-1005.
Now that's called some detail error reporting, hope it helps apple to fix the bug :-)

G.ho.st provides every person in the world with a free Virtual Computer (VC). Like a Windows PC, or Mac, the VC is a personal computing environment which includes your desktop, your personal settings, your data and your choice of software applications. But unlike a PC, your VC is not installed on one physical computer - instead it is stored in a highly professional data center across the Internet, and it may be accessed from any Internet browser in the world. From any browser you can open G.ho.st, enter your username and password, and continue using your VC from exactly the state you had left it in.
Here are some key ways in which your G.ho.st VC is different to a PC :
- Available from any browser in the world instead of being installed on one machine .
- The operating system and the first 3GB of data storage are free .
- Software (namely Web-based software) can be run without installation .
- The computer is always up-to-date, secure and backed up with no action or cost on your part .
- Because it is online, the G.ho.st VC provides new possibilities for fun and collaboration, beyond what is available on a PC.

- Manage from your G.ho.st desktop or directly from Windows!
