    Strange issue accessing site

    Haven't been able to access the site for the last 12 hours or so. Can access pretty much every other website so it's not a connection issue.

    Turned off wifi on my phone and I can access it no problem via 4g.

    Tried accessing it on my Mac, surface pro 3 and iPhone and no luck via wifi through my home connection.

    Home connection and mobile via Telstra. Weird

    MM, we have had an issue similar ( a week or so ago up to and including today ) where access to the site was zilch.

    It turns out that the AP host was blocking our IP and we are constantly resetting the modem in order to get a new IP to be accepted again.
    Whether that is what is happening with you or not I don't know but if you don't have a static IP have a go at resetting your modem.

    if your IP is being blocked, and a modem reset (with new IP) fixes it for a while but you then go back to being blocked, you need to seriously consider if there is a device connected to your modem that is infected with malware.

    Restarting the router seemed to work. I thought that mongo had been chewing the cables on the server again. I was going to suggest you threaten him with a ban if he does it again.

    Couldn't get on yesterday, can today. I'm guessing the issue was not our end.
