I have been encountering a huge amount of server drops, (every 20 seconds when editing some shaders) not simply with the attached, but with all my files, really.
I used to think that it was due to using more complicated meshes, but you can see with the attached that this may not be the case.
The attached is a file that when adjusting noise elements should allow you to duplicate the drop. Actually, the server will also drop when editing meshes, uvs, scrubbing the timeline.
Please take a look, run it through some paces. It is a very basic shader from what I can tell.
Thank you for your help,
