Anyone else can't log on to FR today?

Posted on 02/20/2009 2:47:20 PM PST by paulycy

Periodically, and both Wednesday and today I could not log on, basically all day until just now. But I checked and the FR site was up.

I think the problem is simply that FR is busy and I, on dial-up, just can't get through before the connection times out. I get this error:

But I want to make sure there is not something else going on, such as being blocked or something for some reason.

Any comments you might have about access problems to FR, especially on dial-up, are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

No blocking on FR that I know of. Looks like it’s on your end.

It’s a “your end” problem.

Does this happen often? It happens to me approx once a week or more. Are you on dial-up?

Long running FR joke.

Get ready for some good-natured ribbing.

I am sorry. I was being sarcastic there. But every week many times I get timed out, blank pages, pages that are hours old, gobble gook symbols, all manner of things. It is quit frustrating to be sure. I am on a wireless system. We live out in the middle of no where, and there a couple of T1 lines that we can buy a connection with. The speed is just shy of being cable speed.

“There is nothing wrong with your computer. Do not attempt to adjust the picture.

We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity.

For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat, there is nothing wrong with your computer. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to… The Outer Limits.”
