Sorry if this is posted to the wrong forum.

For several days I have been unable to reach I get 'server not found'. (Using both FIREFOX and INTERNET EXPLORER) At first I thought the problem was with that site, but a Google search did not show any problems from anyone else being reported. I checked my HOST file entries, but it is not blocked there. So I asked a friend who like me is in AUCKLAND, and also on SLINGSHOT BROADBAND, and she too had the same result. Next I asked my sister in Sydney to try, and she was successful!!

Can someone please try to access the site and let me know what ISP you are using, and your city, so I can try to narrow down where the problem is. If it is just Slingshot users, then I will lodge a fault with them.

Send private message or You use one in the subject and another in the message...

One comes as a spam website with porn links, the other is a stock photography site. Which means both resolve for me on TelstraClear.

That's interesting - for days it hasn't worked, and now, just 20 mins after I posted it as a problem here at Geekzone, it is now working! Is that coincidence or what?? Anyway - it's working now :)
