Can't get onto a site I use all the time. It's not down. What's wrong?

Tried linking from google, from favourites, from an email link, typing it direct into the address bar.

LJ was subject to an attack this week, same as FB, Twitter and something else. I have noticed it being slow and not always loading properly and taking ages to loads.

It does seem to be working for me at the moment though. I'm guessing you can get on other websites with no problems?

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 13:57:39

All other websites fine. Nobody else having problems getting onto lj. Just me.

Sorry I can't be of any help.

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 14:18:11


Don't worry.

Sitting here in tears. There's some info on there I really need.

MamaPyjama Sat 08-Aug-09 14:21:14

It's not just you - I can't get onto LJ either. sad

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 14:29:56

Oh there's two of us.

What have we done to offend lj then? Everybody else in the known universe seems fine.

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 15:37:16

Anybody? Please?

have you tried deleting your cookies?

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 16:04:33

Yes. To no avail. sad

Even downloaded an updated version of IE to see if it helps.

Where has lj gone???

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 16:12:05

There has been a subtle change caused by the upgrade I must admit. Instead of saying 'this page cannot be displayed' it says 'Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage'. Brilliant.

lou031205 Sat 08-Aug-09 16:18:20

Hmm, tis odd. I googled and found it straight away. Is there something specific you need? I'd happily email it to you?

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 16:32:26

Thank you but it's in my inbox on there and I suspect I've run out of time now.

It just will not load it. Two bars and then error message.

lou031205 Sat 08-Aug-09 16:36:34

Oh I'm sorry. Could you go to a friend/relative/library & use another PC to access it?

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 16:37:57

Tried DH's PC. Same thing.

Live in the middle of nowhere. Don't drive. Library 9 miles away.

Lost cause. sad

Thought oh it's only a website, cheer up, have a cuppa. Milk's gone off.

whomovedmychocolate Sat 08-Aug-09 17:12:45

Okay, the problem is that service to your ISP has been suspended. There is a way round this - use an anonymiser service which bounces your request through another server. Hang on I'll post a link.

whomovedmychocolate Sat 08-Aug-09 17:14:11

You can get a free trial here

NB you are technically a terrorist if you do this due to the intricacies of computer crime laws here.

Shall I send you a pair of shoes to cheer you up? smile

Or a small boy wielding a KLM aeroplane?

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 17:19:45

Do I admit now or later that I'm married to a copper?

And I once signed the official secrets act and swore blind that I wasn't a terrorist.

Ho hum. Take my thrills where I can get 'em.

Size 5 TMAM my love. wink

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 17:22:04

Oh send the boy, do. He's adorable. I won't be here. Am downloading terrorist fodder as I type. He can come and see his future MIL being carted off by his future FIL. It's something to tell the grandchildren after all.

WMMC, after this 7 day trial of illegal software, will I be kicked off the site again?

And why did it happen in the first place??

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 17:32:28


Downloaded illegal anonywhatsit. Tried to run, enter details, click next says 'your trial has expired' and sends me back to the beginning. I haven't started my trial unless my free trial was a 3 second tease. And it forced me to change my screen resolution before it would download so everything's fecking squashed.

Where are my damn shoes TMAM. I'm getting tetchy.

RedDeadFail Sat 08-Aug-09 17:35:58


The option to change back to my original screen resolution has gone. I can have stretched or more stretched. And I'm on a netbook so can't see half the bloody page.

What the hell is happening today?

It knows you are married to The Law.

Bummer. I have just opened an account as it looks quite interesting.....

What about if you break your connection with your ISP? Reboot your router sort of thing? I'm no expert, I'm sure WMMC will have a better idea.
