Site Can't Be Reached

Recommended Posts

The last few days I've been having difficulty getting the site to come up. I intermittently get this message:

Anybody else having this problem? I'm using Windows 7 and Google Chrome.

I've been getting something similar to that the last two days also. I have to hit the retry button once or twice before I can get on.

I got it last night, but interestingly enough my phone would work but my computer wouldn't. I tried Chrome and Firefox. Today my phone wouldn't work.

I just got kicked off on my computer at home right after I posted this and cannot access the site from my computer. My phone is working fine right now though.

What is really weird is that my desktop will access the site with Chrome right now but my laptop will not. My phone wouldn’t access earlier, but now it will. ????

Thanks everybody, misery and company etc. "Can't be reached" has been happening all day today on my laptop. Sometimes a refresh worked, others I had to back out and reload Edge again.  I was afraid I'd been hacked by the '68 Coronet Revolutionary Brigade or something.

Same here, but I find that when that happens if I just go in to my browser history and click on one of the links from a previous visit, I can reach the site no problem.

Remember, technology makes our lives easier . . . . . . 😉

I just had this happen on the old PC. Got in by doing Google search for modelcarsmag.com. Clicked on the forum button and it put me thru. My saved link won't work.

First time it's worked all day - would our mods care to chime in? Running Chrome on XP (Yeah, I know, I'm a dinosaur).

This forum has had more crashes today than one of John Connor's Russian dashcam videos...

It works on the android phone, but keeps skipping out on the PC. It's running XP, also. First time for this kind of problem. All my other saved links are working. I just checked the newer PC and the forum is working on it. That computer is running Windows 10.

Just literally had this happen on Firefox a moment ago. Switched to my Brave browser and the site came right up.This happened once before on Firefox and didn't occur on Brave so it looks like Brave will be my default browser to use from here on out.

Been happening to me randomly on Brave.  Wait a few and try again and it usually comes up.

Yup............just happened to me there too. :angry: 

Still can't get on with Firefox though no matter how many times I reload the page.

This is going to be annoying today for sure. I want to post a quick update with the '55 Ford I'm working on, but if this is going to be intermittent when I'm trying to post...........I'm not going to bother. It's enough trouble to compose a WIP post without going through site difficulties to boot.
