Working for me...could be that the web hosting page is in your cache - try Ctrl-F5 to clear it. Or it could be that the site is up-and-down

It's working for me too.

Sometimes out on the world wide web there can be a router go down and it can take a few minutes to a few hours for the web to route around it.  During that time a site can appear down to people who get routed through the bad router.  It can have nothing to do with your ISP or the site's hosting provider.  Just one of many "hops" as the connection gets passed through the web.

No matter what I am unable to access the frybrid web site and all I get is uk2,net so amounts to the same thing he is somehow blocking me and will not ship my order or even answer my e mail requests so it's still theft to me. Jerry

It's technically possible if both computers are using the same connection (IP address) - but I don't think that's likely as it wouldn't be a straightforward thing to do. I suspect HTR has it right

No matter what I am unable to access the frybrid web site and all I get is uk2,net so amounts to the same thing he is somehow blocking me and will not ship my order or even answer my e mail requests so it's still theft to me. Jerry

Interestingly UK2.net is a British hosting company; nothing to stop an American company hosting in the UK, but it's not a smart thing to do as it would hurt their search engine ranking quite badly.

If it's any help or consolation (probably not), Frybrid say the following on their site:

Todd our Office guy recently took ill and was diagnosed with near complete liver failure and has been unable to work, as a result I have been working 12 hour days trying to understand his filing system and get the orders shipped. Please send email if you have any questions regarding your order as I have little time for the phone right now. Hopefully I will get all this sorted out in the next week or so

I just tried it and it worked OK.

Maybe you have the site checked as do not trust in your Internet Options? Just a wild guess.

Why don't you call him? Sometimes emails get dumped in the spam folder.

Both www.frybrid.com and www.frybrid.net are working for me.  The fact that another person had a problem with the .com version further supports the odds of it being an Internet router somewhere alone the way.  If both of your computers are connecting through the same connection or from separate connections via the same ISP from the same physical location, it is likely they would both get routed the same way.

Another possibility if both of your computers are using the same Internet connection through a modem/router (i.e. Comcast or similar cable provider) the routing table in your own router can get acting strange.  Unplug the power from the router for 30 seconds and then plug it back in and wait for the front panel lights to settle down.  Then try again.

That happened to me recently on the BCM site. Non of our site would come up in my browser.  I thought the site was down and called Phil.  He checked and there was no problem there.  So I power cycled my router and sure enough, everything was fine.

.com takes me to the UK thing over and over but .net works just fine

And another possibility is that they are changing web hosts.  It can take 1 to 24 hours for the new routing information to update in all web routers.
