failed to extend rollback segment

I am getting this error periodically (most of the time, but sometimes it works).

ORA-01562: failed to extend rollback segment number 16
ORA-01650: unable to extend rollback segment R16 by 8 in tablespace RBS

I have turned LOGGING off on my tables and my indices, yet I still get the error.

Another thing that seems strange is the fact it is complaining about the RBS tablespace, but when I look at my tables they are in the USERS tablespace.

I'm not an Oracle expert by any means... Please help!  Let me know what information I should provide.
