Keep getting "Unable to Connect"

Post by Nantes » December 9th, 2012, 8:25 am

Hi all,

When trying to load any game, I get a "Unable to Connect: Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.classicdosgames.com" error. This has been happening for the past two days. Then I tried loading a game on Internet Explorer to see if it was Firefox's fault, and voila, it worked! So I disabled Adblock Plus in Firefox and it started working there too!

However it's not consistent. I enabled it again and games would still load for a while; then they stopped doing so. I enabled ABP it again but it didn't make the pages load again... So now I have my doubts if it's truly an Adblock incompatibility problem or it was just an incredible coincidence.

A lot of people have had difficulty connecting due to the massive number of visitors, and my webhost assuming that it was an attack and trying to block the traffic. It may get better, but if there's a permanent increase in traffic, I'll have to buy more substantial hosting. It could just be that.
Today entirely the maniac there is no excuse with the article.
