Make sure it isnt close to a header or anything that could heat it up and make it boil.

No brakes at all? or just losing power assist. If its the latter, then its probably a vacuum leak. check the valve that connects to the power assist thing.

yeah I would say check all the vacuum lines for cracks. It is confusing to me though because, on two different occasions, the vacuum hose came off and the brakes became rock solid, then another night my booster just went out and the brakes became rock solid again. So I don't what would cause a mushy pedal.

Sounds like you need to replace the Booster its self. With the Car off and in Neutral Pump up the Brakes till pedal is Hard. Then Start Car and see how much the pedal falls while applying pressure to pedal while starting car and running. If it falls alot the booster needs replacing
