Over the last few days i have been having problems accessing this forum. More often than not the page times-out during access, it's as though you are suffering a DOS attack.

Is anybody else having this problem?

Both terms are valid, maybe you could say DoS, but anyway...

@abelenki,

Thanks for answering the question. I assume you are not having the same trouble i am, who knows. However, i am glad that you find my post so amusing.It must be tough being so tech savvy, or maybe not .

The forum's worked fine for me the last 2 weeks - perhaps your ISP's having some difficulty with the changed DNS?

I have had problems too, but only on certain pages. Is the MESS homepage link for message board correct?

it is a different link than if I go to status page first then go to message board, which has a different link for message board. fortunately I usually check status page before the blabber page smile

Thanks R.Belmont,

The problem comes and goes, it appears to be alright now. Your probably right, it could be a glitch with my ISP.

had problems too, sometimes very slow, sometimes completely down
it was not a DDoS, just slow server
