Please Admins and IT Folks fix this site. The way it is operating now is tantamount to a DOS Attack.

Some fresh paint and Febreeze wouldn’t hurt, either.

Has anyone else heard the OnStar ad where the guy on his first date locks his keys in his truck? The guy asks him if he's at a number where he can be reached, and he says his cell phone is locked in the truck.

WHAT IS HE CALLING FROM, THEN?!??

Try rebooting. I find that helps in many cases.

JimRob should be RICH because of the success on this site- instead they go begging every quarter.

I am all for maintaining your integrity and not selling out, but it is NOT automatic that you HAVE TO sell out if you go commercial

That’s CAPITALISM at its finest (and we like that kind of thing here, dont we?)

This site is too important to be so poorly protected from downtime.

That happened to me recently. I locked my purse with my cellphone and my keys in my car. I called from a phone in a nearby building.

I've been on FR since 1998, and mostly it's been up and fine 24/7 all those years.

It's technology, and it's going to "burp" every once in a while...I'm sure they are working on it as hard as they can go.

Patience is a virtue.

Okay, here’s the deal, if ya’ll promise to vote for Sarah in 2012 I will cease my “broadcast storm” against the FreeRepublic. If you fail to make the promise, I will post “I’d hit it” on every thread, even if it doesn’t make sense within the context. /sarc

This morning I did notice it running very slow, felt like a DDOS attack to me, probably the new web neutrality being test out /not sarc

This site is too important to be so poorly protected from downtime.

Considering that it is a DONATION SUPPORTED WEBSITE, it has been down a very small percentage since it's inception. There are now TWO different ALTERNATE WEBSITES for FR, just in case it is down. Jim Rob and staff should be commended for the uptime percentage they have achieved, and the speed with which they address problems. Name another website (donation supported) that has done as well.

Just because we are all like junkies without a fix is not to be laid at the feet of the WEBSITES STAFF.

Patience is a virtue.

Too bad I don't have much either.

It may be on your end. Mine is working great.

Try a reboot.

Try rebooting.

That would mean logging off.

You might as well ask Freepers to quit breathing.

FreeRepublic is having problem with one of their servers. They reside at IP addresses:

209.157.64.201 (Having Problems)
209.157.64.200

If your DNS decodes to the .201, it will probably be problematic. You can enter the hardcoded IP address as a temporary fix. This is not advised since they could change their hardware IP addresses and it also eliminates cross hunting.

As stated earlier (but not explained) you should try flushing your DNS cache as shown below:

Enter the Command Prompt: (Start/Program/Accessories/Command Prompt).

Enter: ipconfig /flushdns (Enter)

Close window and enter “www.freerepublic.com” and it should resolve. If that does not work, you can temporarily use the hard coded IP address (.200) until the problems are resolved.

Incredible as it may seem, his girlfriend might just have had a cell phone he could use to call OnStar.

That’s my point: the OnStar dispatcher asks him for a number where he can be reached, and he says that his cell phone is locked in his truck. While speaking on a telephone.

Maybe I'm confused...I thought part of the point of the OnStar service was that you can speak to someone by pushing the OnStar button in your car. They can remotely unlock the car. How do you know he was calling from a telephone?

I was having the same problem 3 weeks ago. I could not get on Free Republic or Breitbart but everything else was okay. Slow but okay.

I had to reset my wireless router. Something had burped and the router was blocking those sites.

I have since replaced that router with a new 802.11N router.

It does sound like it is on your end as I am having no problems.
