of course, explaining to them that FSB is an electronics DIY site, and NOT the "movie downloading (dmca)" site they assumed it was may have helped.

Thanks for complaining to them! I didn't know what was going on... thought maybe they pulled the plug on the whole site finally.

Well after voting "No" I thought about it and there were a few days in Dec where I couldn't access FSB, but I thought it was just down.

FSB was never down. my friends with other isp's could access it.

it was fucking att, the cum-guzzlin' gutter sluts.

they need to have their heads pulled outta their collective twats, then get "punched in the vagina".

+1 on the gay midget cross dressing interacial porn. ;)

I'm not with AT&T, we don't have them in the UK, but the site was definitely down a couple of weeks ago for a few days. The error I saw was related to a server-side database problem IIRC, not a connection problem. I cannot comment on previous connection issues, I haven't experienced any, but the site itself was definitely out of action recently.

have you told them? and suggested that perhaps they'd rather you used an alt ISP if they aren't going to facilitate access to legit websites like this place? money talks.. if enough of you threaten to leave they should be receptive to getting their shit together.

yah, last time i called 'em, suddenly everyone could get in again, at least if this thread is accurate.
i've been balls to the walls with some family crisises (including my band's studio burning to the ground, and my brothers losing everything that was in it...thousands of dollars alone just in vintage mics, never mind the b3, leslie, custom tama kit and 8 other drum kits, amps, guitars, digital mixing consoles etc etc etc as well as the touring pa and truck and shit)

if it persists thru the weekend, i will call them ass hats monday and read 'em the riot act. all of us being dicked with need to do this, cuz it's fucked up.

i asked on aron's about if anyone else was having issues, but it's only peeps with att as an isp. even aron seemed sympathetic (i've been kind of a dick about the hatchet being buried between the forums for the good of the community).

it's definitely something to do with domain name servers or something.

i bet some of the losers making tube screamers and burying them in goo are complaining or something cuz fsb illuminates the community about their baloney.

i don't like tube screamers, myself. lol

so... monday... as soon as i get up moday afternoon, i will call att/uverse and BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
