Bill,
Doug Wells was saying to me earlier this evening about not being able to get into ECN here.
I checked this out and when I tried to log in myself, I was hit by a barrage of Pop-up ads and a site that called itself Electrical-Contractor.net, offering free sites.
I also note that the page I'm looking at now has no pictures on it.
If however this is a malicious attempt to bring the ECN server down, I would like to see that those responsible were punished accordingly!. [Linked Image]

Another thing, was that both Doug and I got a 404 Error and we were told that the site couldn't be found.
I've just got back in here now and personally, I'm peeved!. [Linked Image]

I'm having pop ups too, and the chat room is not all right.

Things are working fine now.
Doug,
Thanks for the "heads-up", and you too Bob!. [Linked Image]
I can't say that I've seen this happen before and I'm here more often than not!.
If this gets worse it's going to be a problem.

For some weird reason the Chat-room doesn't load either.

All goes well from here now, I'm in the chat room, but I must say, if it is really free, we have nothing to complain of.

Mike,

This has to do with the FREE website services. I thought it would be good to offer this to Members, but the downside is that to make it work all traffic to Electrical-Contractor.net must go to someone elses server first and then re-directed to ours. This happens in a fraction of a second and no one is even aware of it.

The problem I'm told is that there was a duplicate entry in their DNS Server that was causing problems. They say it's fixed now.(knocking Wood here)
