Internet connectivity and server issues are expected, this is what we display when we can't contact the server. I'm failing to see how this is an issue.

I get that from a technical point of view, from a user point of view it just looks like we do not have a good product.  

It is basically saying that our products can't talk with each other.  

It sounds like we have to make this into a papercut.

Hey Greg, What was the fix to this?

Just sent you a slack with an example modal.
Comment 6 Greg Munn 2016-01-26 18:41:38 UTC
I changed the text to reflect hutch's example for the cases when the server is unreachable. other unexpected errors will be presented in the existing manner.
