Loads fine on IE8 as well. I have used it on many machines? Are you behind any kind of firewall or web filtering through work, etc? Try flushing your DNS cache? ipcponfig /flushdns froma command prompt.

I was wondering this too, but I don't think it is. It doesn't look like a forum that profits from anything like spam postings. I read the Site Rules and the Forums are free.....

One thing that could be blocking it as well that no one has mentioned is the hosts file. if you navigate to Windows/System/Drivers/etc/hosts

Check this file and see if anything is in there. you might be using a custom hosts files as well (as some people do this to block ads and spam)

Good looking Forum too....

type in "ipconfig /flushdns" all on one line.

You can also type in "nslookup www.eng-tips.com" and see if it comes back with an address. If it does, then DNS is not the problem... (Address should be 216.45.19.36)
