    Anyone else having problems with the site? It will come up and I can read a thread or two and then I get a browser connect error. If I wait awhile and try again it will work for a bit and then start the cycle all over. All other websites are working fine on my end.

    EDIT: Well, according to Down or just me? (Beta) it's up when I can't connect. So I guess it's something on my end, just seems odd as this is the only site I am having problems connecting to.

    I've been having the same issue yesterday and today.

    Other sites are working fine, it is also occurring whether I'm getting on at home or at work (different city and provider).

    Me too. Yesterday and today sometimes all I get is a connection has timed out message.

    I haven't been able to open any topics. At least, I can access the main forum this morning,

    Glad to know its not just me. Thanks for the link bootlegger, I didn't see that post (probably because I was looking under site announcements and not off-topic) and I am sure that is related to the issues we are having as this is the type of behavior a site would experience with a dos attack.

    Guys, we are still currently under attack. We are doing our best to fight it, but it is inconsistent at best right now.

    Didn't get any response at all to my last post about this on another topic. This is still am issue here in Edmonton neither Kevin or I can open the site off and on for the last 2 days. Today not at all. Any help I'm that, since it seems quit a few do not have any issues at all.

    Today is the absolute worst. I haven't been able to get into the site all day, and even when I did it lacked the black background and I couldn't go anywhere else. Here's hoping whatever is happening is resolved without losing the site.

    That'd be the dual DDOS attacks we were subjected to today.

    Whoever is working to keep this place up and running during all this nonsense deserves a medal.

    That would primarily be Phil, our server admin. I know it is very frustrating for us, and we just want Phil to "fix it" but he is working incredibly hard on this... even worked on the first attack while he was on vacation, just to get us up and going.

    There are individuals who are using DDOS attacks on this site. That is the reason it keeps going down. Check out the Facebook page for updates.

    Yep, also noticed that the RPF has been unreachable for a while. Now everything seems fine. Mods and technicians are doing a good job! Just wanted to let you know that all the hard work of you guys is very appreciated!!!
