I noted tech's apology for a temporary interruption last night and then later I had explored postings this morning. Suddenly there was a note (503) saying that the server was temporarily out of order. When I tried to access Gransnet again a short while ago, I got a sign (403) saying FORBIDDEN You have no right to access this site. (There was something ungrammatical in the construction of the sentence but I can't remember what. I tried to access the site several times and have, at last succeeded. Who know for how long? Have we been hacked? shock

My message said 'The website declined to show this page'! confused

Hi sorry about that. I messed something up in my midnight meddling, and had to fix it just now. That's why things were down for a little while. Sorry it was telling you you were forbidden. Of course you're in fact very very welcome.....

Nope JessM not with RBS, Nat West et al. Fully paid up to BT. Anyway, could access Mumsnet and other sits okay. Very odd. hmm

Phewww thanks Tech

Anagram You're message was at least polite and more or less accurate. Forbidden was quite nasty and a bit of shock.

Tech Thanks for the explanation. Please don't do that again. smile

Yes, I was just thinking that, absent - mine was almost old-fashioned in its politeness! grin

503 Service Temporarily Unavailable keeps popping up and throwing me off the site, or I can't get in for ten minutes at a time. Anyone else having this problem?

I didn't get to see the other postings above, as when I clicked on the title, it kept throwing me out! Sorry for the repetition smile

It should all be back to normal now but any more problems do let us know

So tech does exist and is not just figment ofGNs imagination!
