Camaro5.com problems

Okay, this happens almost 50% of the time I try and get on Camaro5.com. I put Camaro5.com into the URL but it keeps saying "Internet connection, blah blah blah, you cant get on" kinda stuff.

Happens to me, but only at my friends house. I have no problem getting to it at my house with my internet. I use my laptop at both houses, and it drives me nuts when it doesn't work. I cant figure out why it doesn't work at his house only...

I always switch it up between "www.camaro5.com" and "camaro5.com" and it always has worked when the other seems not to?

Send a message via AIM to Mr. Wyndham
I've got it bookmarked...so I can't say I encounter these problems.

But maybe what you need is a more direct address, instead of just "Camaro5.com". Here's a trick that'll work in Internet Explorer (all) and Mozilla;

type in "Camaro5", then hit Ctrl+Enter. It will automatically add the "http://www." and the ".com." to the beginning and the end. Try that for a while, and let me know if it helps!

It's only happened a couple of times over the past two years and I don't know if it was my internet connection or something else. But, I couldn't even tell you what the problem could be.

Normally, this is a DNS Caching problem with your ISP. In most cases it goes away completely or almost completely.

If not, there isn't much you can do except complain to your ISP. FWIW.

Since we have everyone's attention I've been having weird posting issues lately that are new. Sometimes it redirects me to the "wait 15 seconds before posting again" splash like I double-posted. I almost exclusively use the Quick Reply box but lately instead of just reloading the screen I've been getting the intermediate splash screen explaining that my post is entered.

This happens at work and at home on FF and IE. So it seems universal, and it's been a recent thing that's been happening.

It's happening to all of us that I know of.

I think its part of the increased security Tran and Mark put in place after that last SPAM war we had.
