I hate that server. I wish someone would go kick it.
One is NOT a Happy plat in the slightest, specially seeing as there is hardly anyone turning up here either. Even Wolfie's site is dead. Bloody AMC is where all my friends are and it ain't workin

Plat, I know how you feel. At least I can go to work and get on for a few minutes there. But I always feel so guilty when I do look at it there, although I shouldn't. I do a lot there, more really than I need to, and there truly are times when there is nothing for me to do. I could just sit around and knit, like the other interpreter does when she's there. I also do medical assisting, which she doesn't, but still there are times when I have nothing literally to do for the office and it's perfectly okay for me to go on the site. But as I said, I still feel guilty.

Wanna hear something cute? One of the techies at the server site is an Anne McCaffery fan!

Welllll,

it was up when I came in this morning, but connection died again at 0915 my time (1015 EST or 1515 GMT)

I don't think it's the server that's having problems since so many others are still getting through--but it's probably a router between me and the servers hosting the site

I got on once this morning, but when I tried the second time, no luck (answering the emails on posts). Also tried from Google, still no luck. I live in Southern California, I wonder if that matters.

John over at PF said that there was a router out somewhere in the States Ryuu, but that wouldn't explain why UK people and even Attraio in South Africa are having problems. It is the server, but also possibly the router as well.

Thank you. Thank you. I've been looking for so long to find somewhere mentioning what was going on with the NKT. I admit I didn't remember all the groups but I finally found my way here I'm glad to know I'm not alone. I thought for a second some strange virus had blocked the site I go to the most lol.

Ok now to add this place to favorites so I'll remember to stop by from time to time

I found this reference to similar problems at the server that hosts the AMcCF site:

http://www.lunarforums.com/forum/ind...?topic=31046.0

These folks had the same IP address for their site as John said he traced out to our site. Even some of the symptoms were the same--some could get in, others couldn't.

I still can't except by the anonymous proxy servers John found.
