Oh no! There was a communication problem.

The system can't check my code. Everytime I press the button Check Work, I see this alert on the screen. Tried different browsers, restarted them, restarted my computer, tried almost everything.

Oh no! There was a communication problem.

If you continue experiencing problems, please contact support at help@teamtreehouse.com.

Got really tired of it. I happened before, but today I just got stuck with it and can't go on.

This has happened to me as well in the past using Chrome, I switched to Firefox and haven't had any problems. I'm not sure what causes it but the problem could be a slow internet connection or ad blocking extensions installed on your browser. I suggest making sure that any ad blocking extensions are disabled for the Treehouse site (aka whitelist) if you have them installed and maybe try out a different browser as well.
