this pos computer, and every one on my home network, comes up clean every time... no viruses, no spyware...
i just don't get it.
my ip still comes up even with the damn proxy..
i think google and att are in kahoots or something nefarious..
seems more and more here in the USA we have less and less control of our own goddamn machines!!

i can only get in thru proxy.. but only some, cuz fsb's anti spam crap blocks most of the free proxys that are out there as spammers.
i use elite proxy switcher, it's an add-on for firefox, but ya have to change proxy servers frequently.
real pain in the ass.
gonna try it in tor, but if memory serves, without a proxy, i can't connect even with that... fucked up!!! :shock: :evil:

I have been experiencing this as well for the last month or so. I just thought the site was down until a few days ago when I tried accessing it at work. I was able to get in with a proxy at home or while at work, but AT&T definitely has it blocked at my house.

It's taken them two week, but it seems to got into contact with AT&T themselves to sort it out.
Waiting for a report back...

Now I'll be interested to see the influence on daily statistics -- to actually see how many people the were blocking off the website...

I am not sure it will start again, but this will depend on the reasons of the blockage... If we got infected because the server we were hosted on last year, it may be over.

In case any problems occur, don't hesistate to let me know by mail (admin@)

Hey Guys, I spoke with AT&T about this issue last week. I was on the phone with them for a while sorting this out and they sent me this email.

Freestompboxes.org resolves to the IP address 195.74.38.18.
195.74.38.18 is being blocked by our NOC. The owner of the IP address, Aleborg, will need to contact them at noc@att.net for block removal instructions.

Even though I'm with Telstra Australia rather than AT&T, let's hope it stays that way...... :thumbsup
