thanks bros...

yah, it's been a trying period lately... a lot of heavy shit has been going down.

this shit is just icing on the cake.

if you guys wanna help, one of the kindest things ya'll could do would be buy a copy of my brother's cd, from http://avalanche.us.com

it was barry and mark's studio; i was also a member of the easton brothers band.
i was lucky... all i lost was all the songs i had in the can.

most i had backed up, and the rest i can always re-do someday if need be... but man... barry in particular is devastated. he lost his whole life there pretty much.

the good thing is no one was hurt too badly... cousin kenny tried to fight it with an extinguisher, but the soundproofing in the walls may as well have been napalm. the whole building was pretty much gone by the time the fire trucks got there.

it was so hot, it melted the headlights in my brother's truck, a good 100 yards from the fire.. melted all the siding off the house, man...all that's left is cinders and speaker baskets.

i hope it never happens to anyone else.. it's too much to go thru, losing everything like that when your in your 50's.

insurance is a good thing... these people specialize in music gear: www.clarionins.com

not spamming for 'em, but just in case... i am seriously considering insuring all my gear after this.

sorry for the ot mates... rock on!

is it being blocked at a DNS level or what? if it's just DNS, change your server to google (8.8.8.8 ).. should sort the issue...

AT&T appears to be blocking my access to the site at home. I called them, and got a voice message reply, where they suggested that if the site was blocked by them the owner of the domain freestompboxes.org needs to contact noc@att.net.

This is very annoying. Is there anything else I can do? I got a good response from them by post to the AT&T Facebook page.

This is such a hassle It's making me want to change my ISP, but it's difficult where I live since there isn't much choice in service.

i called, they claimed they aren't blocking it.
i reccomend repeated stabs at the zero button while spewing enough filth at the dirty asstards to get them to understand how bad they suck.
fucking wankers.
i have to use a proxy, or i could use tor, but i don't really wanna be dealing with this bullshit.

Called AT&T and the representative indicated that the administrator of this site must send an e-mail to netsec@att.net to get it unblocked.
There seems to be some sort of phishing coming from the hosting ISP or this domain.

AT&T is blocking me. I can't access the site at home. Here's what they emailed me:

The IP 195.74.38.18 has been blocked into the AT&T network, due to its role in a DDOS attack.
Please have the hosting company that owns this site contact us for instructions on how to resolve this.

Thanks,
