Greg,

I think it's a DNS server related problem. It seems to happen once in awhile and has something to do with the Free website servers.

I sent them an email about an hour ago because i couldn't even get to the site. Hopefully they will get it fixed (and keep it fixed) soon.

I can't get in via Netscape 9... It brings up a "My Free Web Site" page yet the address bar is correct.

I thought maybe the web address registration didn't get renewed, and somebody grabbed/ hijacked it. As I saw some of the ECN graphics at the "fake" site, and it looked like someone grabbed those graphics from ECN and planted them on the fake web page. But it looks like it's corrected now.

This has happened before. it's got something to do with the free website offering (for Members) arrangement that we have with Community Architect.

My understanding is that to make that work all traffic must go to their servers first and then traffic meant for ECN gets forwarded to the ECN server. The last time this happened they said there were duplicate DNS records or something like that, which would sometimes get you here, or not, depending on which record was followed.

Anyway, I've emailed them about 10 times and tried to call them (mailbox full) and no response yet.
