Ed - Maybe go to your local public library to gain access, or see if they can?

I'm in Atlanta, and it's after 9:30 am here. Apparently servers are still down. I can get to messages from my phone, but the page can't be found on IE.

Hello everyone!

I am in Ontario and it is working now, good to see my messages again. It would be nice if we are aware of any longterm Technical situation via email in order for us to stay calm. (This is my openion)

I can't get in either and I am sure I don't have a virus. I think there are server problems somewhere in the system

There have been massive east coast telecom outages due to hot weather and black outs.... pof I think is based in EU.... when weather breaks you will see possible better performance.... IMO

I think it is either a bandwidth issue or server issue with POF. for a couple of days I was having problems with POF timing out when accessing the web page. In my experience as a network admin for DoD; this usually happens when a either a server is becoming overloaded or, the bandwidth is too small to accompany the traffic load. its like trying to pour a gallon jug of water into an empty milk jug with a funnel. in order to allow the flow rate of water to flow into the empty jug without over flowing, you must get a funnel (bandwidth) with a larger hole to allow for the appropriate amount of water to flow through at a constant rate. otherwise, the water will over flow out of the funnel (timeout on the internet). It essentially leaves you standing at the entrance of the gate while everyone else is trying to rush through the gate entrance.
I probably confused you even more??

Also, you have to realize that we have had major power outages and telcom problems spread across 7 states due to storms and tornadoes this month. If the primary server is out of power, its not going to be online and has to re-route itself to one of its backup servers in which it has to find a path to get there which takes more time to do that. This could also be causing the timing out issue.
