    Have you tried another browser? I've never had a problem with loading the site myself, and I've almost always used Chrome on my visits.

    Yeah I've tried both IE and Firefox, both have the same issue.? Still not resolved unfortunately.? I tried 3/4 times to access the site while it was down, and got the error message. Then when the site went back up my PC has had trouble loading it.? I was thinking it might be some kind of bottleneck with routing the data packets, but I use the same router for my laptop too and it works fine.

    Here's another one that might do something. But it's a long shot.

    Windows key + R

    Type CMD

    Press Enter

    You'll get into the command prompt.

    Type ipconfig /renew

    Press Enter

    Wait a couple of minutes

    Exit command prompt

    I'll give it a go when I switch on my PC, cheers Dick.

    Unfortunately it didn't work :ohdear:

    I hate computers.

    I'm going to check my firewall when I get the chance, make sure it hasn't changed settings or something.? Fingers crossed.

    Maybe its been activated by Skynet. Careful, it might mistake you're attempts to fix it as you trying to kill it...

    If Skynet was real it would at least unite humanity for a change? :)

    Now there's a thought. Skynet:Bringing people closer by being terrifying and oppressive since 1996.

    lol We joke about Skynet but I'm somewhat wary of it. It just seems like something our overly eager scientist would create without thinking of the consequences should we ever get a hold of that kind of technology.

    Also, I'm assuming Google Drive is like their answer to Windows SkyDrive?

    Yeah, but they do all kinds of smart things to your files to make them searchable. Even if you put a Jpeg file in there, they recognize the written text in that file.

    drive.google.com

    Dropbox, but done the Google way. It's pretty awesome and they give you 5GB for free. I use it to sync my documents between my desktop and laptop.
