    Unable to connect

    Glad to finally be able to get back on. I notice some people were able to get on yesterday and this morning ,but I kept getting the IE can't connect message.I could get on other websites however. Some (probably all of you) know more about servers,networks etc. Is it possible some of the problem was network traffic,etc? Or is it something with just my computer? I assume- now that I've finally been able to get on- that the problem, at least partly, is that I'm on Satellite internet service. Any thoughts?

    Still getting major red flags from security sites. Blocked another malicious program earlier today that launched from this website.

    I had similar problems yesterday with malicious programs. I think they came from this site but not sure. Why can we not visit CF without this problem. I like this site better than rivals but cannot cope with this type of problem.

    Yeah, it was a DNS change, when you got back on depended on when your DNS provider (usually your ISP, most people dont know what a DNS provider even is) updated their lists. Some are much faster than others (those of us using google's free DNS servers never lost access i believe).

    I can assure you that our site doesn't have a virus. We have two tech teams that monitor things round the clock.

    I use OpenDNS and never lost access that I know of.
