    Hi Lex,

    The GOS Site is very much active. Due to massive attacks on our server originating from Russia and parts of Eastern Europe, we had to block certain ISP ranges. You may be in one of those blocks. If you email me, I can see if we can provide you access.

    Don\'t take it personally, you\'re not actually blocked. The problems is that our server was under massive attack from certail areas. If you send me your IP my service provider can easily allow access for the whole range of your area. If you email me I can get your mail server IP and will have this taken care of immediately.

    Maybe it was a Bush Babie or a conspiring sample developer [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Gary, you\'re not alone there! I host a server in L.A. and we have been experiencing the same problems for a few months now. My server admin calls them \"denial of service attacks\" whereby a hacker (or hackers) attempts to \"flood\" a network, thereby preventing legitimate network traffic coming through. I heard that this technique was once used to make microsoft.com fall over in a heap.

    Regards, Scott.
