Re: Spam:****, Re: alternativephotography.com and cyanotype

Well, I guess we mean different things by accessibility. I'm not talking about "not found" errors; I never got a "not found" error, but I couldn't see anything on the site; it wasn't accessible to my browser in the sense that the information wasn't available to me, even though I could arrive at the site without any problem. This is why I write my own site with the most primitive html, so that anyone, with the most ancient browser or hardware, will always be able to access the information that's there.

Don's right. Browsers have absolutely nothing to do with whether you can
access a page. At the very most extreme, different browsers will display
pages differently, nothing more. "Not found" errors are browser
independent; they are usually caused, as Don mentioned, by configuration
problems somewhere down the line (computer's firewall, wireless router,
internet provider, etc.).

Well, I hate to disagree with such confident certainty, but the fact
is that before I changed computers and browser, I could not access
that site with the browser that was on my computer, and if there was
something I really wanted to see on the site, I had to start up a
browser I didn't like and didn't care to use as a rule, (it was very
slow and took forever to open and close and download things, in
comparison to the older browser I ordinarily used) in order to access
the site. This was inconvenient at best and exasperating at less than
best.  With the computer I have now and the browser I have now, the
site is easily accessible.  So it doesn't make sense to me to say
that the hardware or software doesn't have anything to do with it.
Besides, if software didn't matter, why would you get those messages
one sometimes gets that say "this site is best viewed with Microsoft
Explorer v. xyz" or whatever the site is optimized for.

FWIW, I can get there with any browser I use, Opera, IE, or Mozilla.

Assuming that two users on the same wireless LAN can't surf to a

There maybe security settings that are blocking that URL, either on

But what ever the problem is, it certainly isn't due to the site

long as it is up.)

You can go to this web page which may help resolve your problem.


Perhaps this will help.
