For the last 4 or 5 days I've been unable to get the Sinfest website or these forums to load on my screen. It always just times out before anything appears onscreen.

I'm actually at my work right now, in their internet cafe. Thats the only way I could find to even post this.

I've tried cleaning out my temp files and cookies and using Firefox, and nothing helps. I thought at first I had been IP banned for some reason, but if this account is still active, then surely that cant be right?

Anyone got any information or advice for a man starved of his daily Sinfest fix? Sad

I'm having the same problem at home, but not at work

I suspect google ads, sometimes when the site finally loads, the google ad will be missing.

Maybe it's just traffic?

Both the site and the forum seem to get pretty slow, to the point of unusable, for me, at about the same time at night (but not every night).

I get that as well, sometimes I can sit for 5 minutes before I get any change. It does it both at work and at home.

Also I randomly log out.

I also have this problem.
But I think it's my browser's/cookies' fault.

I don't have any of those problems. Oh, sometimes it is unbearably slow (15 sec to load? Noooo!) but no random logging out or anything like that. I am on a mac and I use Safari. I encourage all of you to do the same. Firefox and Opera are acceptable replacements for Safari.

I hate Safari.



I'm having issues on occasion at both home and work where Sinfest times out.

At home I'm also having issues with my ISP redirecting me to a search page when I try to access AllMusic.com (said page saying that such website does not now nor has it ever existed), and who knows what might be causing that one.

Slow forums for me, but that's all.

I tried Allmusic.com, just to see.
It got there for me, but it was sloooooow.
If it still doesn't work, try seeing what [url]63.214.183.117[/url] gets you.

I dont think its a problem with traffic. It doesnt matter when I try to access Sinfest, day or night, it never appears. When I get home from work I'm going to try re-installing IE and see if that helps.

If it doesnt, then I'm totally at a loss.

You picked the worst site to test with. All music gets timeouts on regular basis, I can't tell you how many times I got timeouts during a search.
I love allmusic by the way, I used to dream of memorizing the entire site.

heh. I tried to post just a moment ago and got the timeout message.

Anyway, Verizon still claims allmusic doesn't exist. I was too busy at work to try it there.

That's funny, me too. And I've just viewed the comic and posted a new thread. It only happened when I hit "Reply" on this thread, but was fine when I hit "Quote". Ironically, I was also going to reply that I'd had no problems when the reply timed out. Otherwise, though, access to Sinfest has been normal for as far back as I can recall... it may be something to do with Tat's install of phpbb (who manages that, anyway?).

Actually thought it was going to work today. The first time I clicked Sinfest in my favourites list the site loaded, but the comic was a red x. When I cleared out my temp files and hit refresh though, the page timed out per usual, and it refused to load again after that.

I'm lucky I'm working right now, or I'd be completely Sinfest free right now.

Tried going straight to the comic URL (instead of loading the rest of the page)?

Eg: http://www.sinfest.net/comikaze/comics/2008-01-17.gif

Failing that, read the comic from its thread in the forums...
