"Failed to connect, retrying"
It's your internet or your Repl's data that causes the server to overload. Hope you can mark it as answered!
@UltimatePython thank you for your feedback. I reported this as a bug and was informed that many users were experiencing the same problem.
As to your answer, my daughter also uses the internet and was experiencing no problems. I don't have enough data on Repl's server to cause an overload. I'm still on day 3 of my training course so very little on my Repl account.
Appreciate your response.
