Works fine for me. Might have been a temporary down time. If you still can't get in, clear your browser cache and try again.

Works for me too. They tend to go off for very short periods now and then while doing work on the site.

We have maintenance periods too. Thankfully, they are short and not very frequent.
Almost all sites go off-line for short periods, once in a while.

Best course of action is to wait a short time... An hour or two.
If the site doesn't come back on or, at least, post a message then there might be cause for action.

Otherwise, it will probably come back in a little while.

Twas not your imagination. Site was inaccessible for a bit this week. Back to functioning normally.

No problem. When the system says "loading" and your screen is still blank 90 seconds later you gotta wonder "Is it me or them?". :?

The problem could be anywhere. A lot of times, when the browser "hangs" it's because your computer is waiting for data to come in from the remote server.

It could be because the server that the remote website runs on is busy or overloaded and is running slow. (This happened to us a while back.)

It could be because one or more of the links in the internet "pipeline" between you and the remote site are overloaded and data isn't getting through. Think of the internet as a freeway for information. Just like on a real freeway, there are traffic jams. If your data hits a virtual traffic jam, it could take longer for your data do come through and, therefore, it could take a long time for your website to load.

It could be because of a problem in your local connection to the internet. The internet "freeway" is running fine. Your little "off ramp" to the freeway is jamming up. If the wiring in your house has gone bad your data can't get through like it should. People often call inside premises wiring the "last mile."

Your DSL/Cable modem could be malfunctioning or it could be misconfigured. Your data is getting all the way to your house but, when it gets to your cable modem, it just can't find its way to your computer.

Finally, it might be a problem with your computer. Your computer might be configured incorrectly or there might be a problem with your web browser program that's causing it.

90% of the time, freeze-ups can be solved by hitting the "BACK" button on your browser and reloading the page.
Just wait a minute for the "traffic jam" to clear and request the page again. It should come through just fine.
You might find that there are certain times of the day or evening when the internet runs faster or slower.

Several years ago, people discovered something called the "Seinfeld Effect."
Between 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM the internet used to frequently become congested. Then, suddenly, at about 8:00 PM, the congestion cleared and the internet ran fine. At about 9:00 PM, the congestion returned until 10:00 PM or 11:00 PM it slowly went away again.
What they discovered is that people came home from work and, right after dinner time, they hopped on the internet and started surfing. That's when the congestion started. Then, when the "Seinfeld Show" came on TV, people stopped surfing and went to watch TV for an hour or so. When people were done watching TV, they hopped back on the internet until bedtime, at which time, the congestion cleared again until the next day.

So, if your internet connection freezes up a lot, you might be caught up in a Seinfeld effect. Try again later when traffic slows.

"Last Mile" problems and problems in your DSL/cable modem are going to have to be solved between you and your internet service provider.

One thing that is often helpful, especially if you use Internet Explorer as your browser, is to empty your browser cache.
Here is a link to a page from Microsoft which explains how to clear your browser cache:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie6/using/howto/customizing/clearcache.mspx
It talks specifically about IE-6 but other versions are similar. You should be able to figure it out.

One thing you can check is to see if OTHER websites are running slow or if JUST ONE is. If it's just one site, you know the problem isn't in your system but in "their" system. Contact the site owner/administrator if you can. Otherwise, look to see if the problem isn't in your system, somewhere.
We haven't had problems with the Fur Den in quite a while but, if you have problems that won't go away, please give us a "holler" and let us know. We'll do what we can to fix it.

Another "glitch" that can happen occasionally with internet traffic is packet loss. If your browser is waiting for a packet of data that was lost (dropped somewhere probably by an overloaded router), it could be unable to detect that the packet was lost and just keep waiting. Usually browsers can detect that a packet was lost in the middle of a data stream and will request a re-transmission of the missing data packet. However if the lost data packet was the last of the stream of packets, it would probably just wait indefinitely for the packet to arrive.
