    What is this about?

    I was going to read a post in the WinXP Lounge and this message popped up!

    <font color=red>Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl on this server.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Apache/1.3.27 Server at www.wopr.com Port 80</font color=red>

    I also got this message when I wanted to check out who was online. Is there a glitch in the "giddy-up"?? Just curious as to what the problem might be? Could this be a "cookie problem"?

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> for your assistance.

    Re: What is this about?

    Well, I went back to recheck the two places that had been "forbidden" and now I am allowed to view the pages in question. Don't know what is happening but apparently it is a random thing for me. I haven't deleted "cookies" yet, but I may go do that for good measure.
    Has this happened to anyone else, or is it just me <img src=/S/question.gif border=0 alt=question width=15 height=15>

    It looks to me as though it's a server-overload. I'm trying to track it. I suggest you try again after some 5 minutes or so if this happens to any of you....
    Cheers, Claude.

    You'd be unique, but for me <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Had the same thing a couple of times a few hours ago, but I was having other net "issues" as well so dismissed it. Just now (5 mins ago) had the Lounge "freeze" on me and come up with the "The page cannot be displayed / Cannot find server or DNS Error" message.

    Yes, that's been happening all day here in Australia, it's a Telstra issue AFAIK, you'll find that they are "upgrading" their system once again.

    Presumably it's for our own good <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16> - at least they've set up the Internet Assistance Program to help us maximise the benefits once they're there?

    Re: What is this about?

    It just sounded so aminous........"Forbidden........You don't have permission, etc." and I hadn't had this happen before <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>
    So I am very glad it wasn't just me!!!!! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: What is this about?

    I'm seeing the same problem.

    Would not let me post when I finally did get in.

    Re: What is this about?

    I notice they don't list the Lounge in their "How did you hear about us?" survey.

    Thnaks for the info in the Internet Board along a similar line. (I just read the email notification of your reply.)
