      This post - for the last 5 minutes prior to this post I was getting "server not found" errors. I check this site multiple times a day and this error comes up frequently. It is not a problem for hours like before, but I do get the error every day.
      During those times are you able to ping the site?

      Yes, but no response. I'll try multiple times then I just leave the window with the error open and use another window to go elsewhere. After a few minutes, I'll ping the site by using the refresh on my browser or the "try again" button on the error page. Usually after some time, I'm able to bring the site up again doing this.

      Thanks for posting.

      DHoffman was online prior to that and ImaginaryDay2 was online after that time. I'm not sure if either were on during since there are not any posts marked with that time. @Romanos what do you think is happening?

      It's probably just server hiccups.

      It's not.

      Every single time I am away from this site for a while, I get a DNS error for the first 10 minutes or so when trying to view it again. After, there is no problem.

      I have run ping tests on this website and others. While others show packets being received - even while I can view this website the ping from their server shows it is offline.

      It's almost as if Admin is blocking access to certain users until they are online to watch? Or are we not really public?

      Am I wrong? Why the deception?

      Romanos doesn't own the server.

      I'm not sure if that is relevant. It makes no sense that ping and traceroutes from two different services will pull up other websites fine, but all packets are lost on this website(ping) or no response/timeout (traceroute) - showing it is down according to them, while at the same time I'm viewing it. Does it make sense to you?

      I used to be able to ping the site and now I cannot. So apparently the host has disabled the requests to deny pings.
