i won't take any credit for it, but found it insanely interesting that the minute i called to bitch suddenly service was restored.

of course, explaining to them that FSB is an electronics DIY site, and NOT the "movie downloading (dmca)" site they assumed it was may have helped.

I'd be interested to see if they were actually blocking traffic, or just redirecting DNS.. if it's just DNS, then just change your DNS server to use googles ( 8.8.8.8 )

That could be a line from Pawel/Sinner/Max Headroom (can't remember his new FSB name).

Glad you're back on line Jim, hope any others get sorted soon.

The site has timed out every time I tried to login for the past few weeks. I figured the FSB service provider had yanked the site down over some IP issue again. No problem today.

I am also with AT&T and wasn't able to visit until today.
Thanks for complaining to them! I didn't know what was going on... thought maybe they pulled the plug on the whole site finally.

Yeah, it's not like this is FREE. I'm PAYING them to be able to go to whatever site I damn well please.

Forgot to say I am on AT&T, but I also tried it with my backup connection through my Hughesnet service. No connection with either one.

That's interesting cause I'm with a different ISP, Telstra, and I've had login issues too, but I seem to be able to login okay now..... :thumbsup

i think it's cuz the net neutrality thing won today.

a lot of the bigger isps that are twats were all signing up to block content from what they consider "file sharing" sites or some such ridiculous bullshit.

i explained to them stupid ass suckers that FSB is a DIY hobby site for electric guitar freaks sharing effect related stuff, not a fuckin' "movie site".

i am glad to be back, but i'm still pissed off at them wankers. only reason i'm with 'em is they're the cheapest alternative i have where i live.

ay yi yi yi yi... stupid fuckin' people. thanks again for the help, and glad if me bitching at them helped somebody else too.

they were like, "well, maybe you should delete a couple cookies maybe or something"...and i'm like, i've been doing this for long enough to run a reasonably tite ship, and i ain't some teenager with their first iphone.

dumb fuck corporate douchebag ass pucker suckin' greedy fascist bastards... :shock:
