The New Site
« on: August 31, 2010, 08:52:38 AM »
Gents,

I cant access the new site from home, I've cleared the cache, deleted cookies, tried with different browser and even deleted and reinstalled firefox. Any ideas?

I have had the same problem for a couple of weeks. I assume my IP Address has been banned, probably by some automatic process.

Peter Withe, you could additionally try and flush your dns cache. From the command line:
ipconfig /flushdns

Yes, smaller font and typeface, I take it you can adjust in profile but I've not tried yet.

Yup I've tried this flush but still the same message 'taking too long to respond', I am also with Virgin and can only access the site via a proxy, is it something Virgin will be able to help with? any other suggestions?

I am with Virgin Media as well, so the evidence is mounting. It would be worth contacting them.
