    Not sure if it's an issue on your end but over the past several days whenever I attempt to access global affairs it often times out and I am unable to do so. This will persist for hours at a time.

    Can't speak for the admins, but I've had no problem accessing the site over the last several days.

    I haven't had any problems, and don't know of any.

    Hrmm. Maybe a problem with my ISP. I will run a traceroute once it occurs again. However Global Affairs is the only website with which this has been an issue. Google, Facebook, etc. all work fine.

    There hasn't been any issues on the server side.

    I have two other similar reports (John and Dhom), however the logs aren't showing anything that would preclude anyone getting access. I did notice in the two mentioned cases that the trace routes looked positively atrocious.

    I'm getting the same problem periodically. It's probably a bad router in the mix somewhere, or else a bottleneck caused by some spammer or something.

    Same with me, 'times out' virtually every attempt to fire up this site, the ONLY one I have trouble with. Been a problem for a bit over 3 weeks.

    My 'Networx' speed meter drops to zero as soon as I click the GA link.

    Admin has been very helpful, but can't say the same for my ISP.

    Next time any of you have issues, please send me a trace to the server. If it's a borked router in the datacenter where the server is hosted, I'll pass it along to the tech support folks there.

    Techie, what browser are you using. This isn't related to the Chrome issue, is it?

    I was thinking the same thing. Although since downloading the new version of Chrome I've only had 2 jam-ups. A big improvement over the previous problems with opening GA pages.
