    Freesound website doesn´t load


    Help!!! For a couple of weeks I´m not able to load the freesound website from my computer at home.
    The error message is s.th. like "running timeout".

    I tried a couple of things, but no chance.

    Has anybody had the same problem this year? Up to the end of last year everything worked fine.

    :cry: I need help!

    P.s.: At home I use Windows XP and a DSL connection. The provider hasne´t answered yet and all other websites work.

    hmm this is very strange, indeed... have you tried using a proxy-server yet? Or if you are using a proxy-server, have you tried to surf through direct connection (if possible)? Have you tried accessing the site with another browser?

    Well, I tried different browsers and they all don´t work. I wonder, if it has to do with the ending of the webaddress, because all the other sites seem to work.

    Did anybody else had this problem?

    inchadney,

    Try with a different computer on the same physical line (ask someone with a laptop do drop by). If that doesn't work it's a problem at your ISP.

    If it works (i.e. other computer, same line, works), then maybe there's something severily with your host file. Do a google for "windows hostfile" or "mac hostfile", then clean out your host file.

    If that doesn't solve it... Dunno... Reinstall your system or get a professional's help.
    I'm 100% sure it's not freesound's problem.

    grin grin grin yes, yes, yes! The strange world of computers. Yesterday I had a information mail from freesound about the end of the competition with the link to the side....and :lol: it worked! Puh, I´m glad to be back and wonder what the reason was...maybe my provider?! Anyway time to post a few tracks and time to see hwat has happenend in the last few month (a lot by the look of things!)

    Thanks for the advice!

    What browser were you using when you encountered the problems?


    I am the thing that goes bump in the night...
