    Site check

    Been trying to get on to the Netflix DVD rental site for a while now but without success. Just get kicked off IE.
    Can anyone try it from your location? Also tried pinging the site but got time outs.

    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!

    I mis-spoke. I was able to access the sites in IE and Opera, but not able to log in to my account. I was, however, able to log in to my account using Firefox.

    I used both IE 7 Beta 2 and Firefox without any trouble! I'm on Roadrunner! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    ps: I don't have an account. I only surfed the pages I could get to but didn't have any problems doing it.

    I too could surf around the site with the non-FF browsers. The logging in was the problem.

    Thanks to Skitterbug & mbarron for trying that site for me.

    I SEEM to have it cleared up by visiting my favorite ISP ( starts with V ) who couldn't understand why this was happening. No block here said they.
    I put the Netflix site on their whitelist and logged of and tried again to get to Netflix.

    WOULD YOU BELIEVE, it suddenly started to work OK!!!!! <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>
    "wasn't V though" they avowed?

    Now I'll have to try the other site that wouldn't work. A book club called A Common Reader.

    Common reader won't work for me in any browser (I tried Opera, Firefox and IE6).

    I didn't have any luck with the common reader site. I get an "unable to connect" when I click on your link. I did a trace and got this response: traceroute: unknown host http://www.commonreader.com/ Good luck with this one! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> I think it may be hopeless - for now!

    Viking, if this Wikipedia reference is to the same site you are looking for, you may be Sadly Out of Luck: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Common_Reader

    John,

    That sure appears to be the answer. Another good company gone "belly up".
    It's too bad. It was a good source of sensibly priced books.

    To Ian & Skitterbug:

    Thanks for trying. This time it wasn't the big V's fault.
