Can't access site

Postby Marty R. » Fri Feb 14, 2014 11:02 pm

I haven't been able to access the forum all day on my Windows 7 desktop, but got here on an old XP netbook.

My son was able get here on his Android phone, but not his W7 desktop either.

We had an IP address change this morning. The machines that aren't working probably cached the old IP address and won't work until the cache expires or you flush the cache. Re-booting the machine generally flushes the cache. There are easier ways to do so, but they vary with different versions of the OS.

Thanks Jason. Rebooting did the trick.
