    Anyone having trouble accessing the forum from their computer? I haven't been able to get on in three days. I've tried using Safari, IE, and Firefox. I'm posting this from my iPhone.

    There seems to be an undetermined failure that broadly blocks some people for some arcane reason.

    Yep. I thought I had annoyed the "Powers That Be" one too many times and had been banned. I couldn't get to the site through AOL, but I got here by using Internet Explorer...:X

    I had not been able to access the forum myself.

    I could get on in the break room at work and post, but couldn't access it from home. It was weird.

    Had the same issue. According to Grapeshot, the site had a routing issue that has since been resolved.

    I haven't been able to get on with a computer or blackberry since monday. Even now, the site loads about 50% of the time for me.

    Twice in the past week I have been able to access the site, but have been unable to post, reply or PM.

    Ah. That would explain why some people could get to it from some locations and others could not.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    I had one time when I couldn't post this past week, and then a day or two this past week I could not access the site at all.

    I have been bad sick though so haven't tried as often as I would normally would.

    I could open the hot topics page but not the forum groups page, and subsequently the Virginia page.

    But it's working now, that's all that matters. Hope fully we won't have that issue again.

    Its been so long since I had to "sign on" that I had forgotten my password. I was asked to sign in to respond to posts tonight. I guess my cookies got cleaned out and this was one of them. I suppose I didn't even leave any crumbs. I'll remember the PW next time.
