Trouble accessing forum?
« on: August 12, 2014, 09:38:58 AM »
I received a message on FB from someone who is not able to access the forum.  Has anyone else had problems, or heard from anyone else having trouble?

Managed to make it in with old phone but cannot access via iPhone or computer on FireFox or IE (latter always being sketchy).

I was beginning to think I was banned.  Because I have really bad PMS, really stressed, arguing with people who like to argue.  Woe is me, I am being overly dramatic.

Sorry guys-- it was not just us, though-- it was ALL of OLI, though, so it was at the server level.

I could not get in via Firefox, via my mobile browser on my Android phone, etc.

Sorry!!

Glad everyone is back.

Sorry if I was slow with replies.  DH is on vacation, so I've been on-line less.

SL - no worries and no apologies, you need offline time as well  :smooch:

I am just having a mind racing day (and I wonder where DS2 gets it from  :hiding:).  I cried all the way to trampoline, usually stoic DS1 shed tears three times today, DS2 cried and threatened to move away (I may have made the big jump into our homeschool time a little too fast, trying to figure out what they can handle) and well Em cries if the wind catches her wrong these days.

Could not get back into thread here for a few moments (just now).

This was message I got, BTW:

This is the first time that I've had access since about 3pm Pacific, btw-- so it's been about 4h for me.

Is it possible this might be related to massive online shopping traffic nationwide?

Just thinking . . .

Or maybe has to do with the spam challenges of late?
