We are on a temporary port, there have been some more hardware failures and our host is working with comcast to get it fixed. Don't expect full service until Monday at the earliest.

For those still having issues I found a workaround that seems to be working great. Go to opendns.com and set up an account. they will give you 2 opendns server IP addresses to add to your computer or router settings which will redirect you through a better functioning dns server.

JoJo called me, yesterday, and said he still couldn't get on the server. I tried and work at home, yesterday morning, and it worked. However, when I went home that evening, from my home, it didn't.

Seems to work, now.

It still seems hit and miss here, so I am using openDNS to gain access.

As of 9:45pm here in Washington I can only access it by using the opendns servers not Comcast. I can also access it using my T-Mobile service.

Just tried accessing the forum from home using Comcast and am getting errors again. Tried my opendns which worked before and it is also not working. Using the Web on my T mobile phone doesn't work unless I switch it to incognito, and then it looks plain text and no pics.

I was trying to edit the FsN friendly list last night & the site wouldn't load. It wouldn't load this morning either. AFAIC, it's been down ~24hrs.

I think the hamsters just caught the flu.

The strange just got stranger. Using my home network again but using safari on my iPad I had no problem going to or logging in. Could this be a Firefox or IE stop gap? I'm somewhat tech savvy but not understanding this one.
