    As far as I understand, these are the issues:

    1) TF.n made a DNS change for boards.theforce.net last night (according to Scott).

    2) Anyone using any sort of ISA (Internet Security Accelerator) -- which includes most ISPs and most corporate proxy servers -- will be unable to reach the destination until sometime much later today or tonight.

    I'm using my company's BACKUP proxy server which caches nothing at the moment, so that's where I'm coming from in how to get here vs. getting a 404 (which my company's main proxy gives me).

    I wondered why I was the only one in JCC for over a half an hour this morning.

    Then I couldn't get in for a while.

    Interesting, I was getting a 404 error for about an hour this morning, but it seems to be fine now. Thanks for the update! :)

    Oh no, poor paul :p well, keep posting, maybe it will go away!

    I was actually starting to worry about my computer last night, I was trying to delete chached stuff, histories, etc. Glad to see it's nothing on my end :p

    Whew! Once I found out that this wasn't on my end, I felt relieved. I tried everything I knew how to do and nothing worked.

    I still get them occasionally... it works fine for a little while, and then the error messages comes again. :(

    I haven't had the problem that you all are seeming to have. Why is that?

    For some, running ipconfig /flushdns from a command line will fix the problem. (Didn't help for me since my ISP's DNS server obviously doesn't have the new info).

    I had luck adding the following line into my \Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file:

    216.35.19.131 boards.theforce.net

    I wouldn't leave it there permanently, but it will hopefully work until the DNS changes have propogated through the Internet (usually about 48 hours).

    Your mileage may vary.
