Searching for TRF on Google and clicking on the link to the forum seems to work as well. At least it does for me. :)

I had issues before but it seems fine, for now anyway.

Well that explains, I haven't been able to connect the whole morning/afternoon. Only just now managed to.

Edit. It seems that I have some problems yet with links in the forum and safari browser. I don't know if is this related.

I will see this a bit later if works well already.

External links don,t work for me:confused:

So is this what was stopping me from looking at the forum last night? For about an hour, no matter what page I tried to open, I'd get the "server not found" error.

Glad the problem's been solved because I have no idea what you're talking about in the OP :o

I... didn't notice it. Btw, I'm sure 2010 - 2011 are the years with more DDOS attacks of the history.
