Anyone else having trouble accessing Prune?

I am using a Mac and only about half the forums are accessible, the others and the Private Messages all produce "Network Error (tcp_error)" on the screen. There seems to be no common feature between those forums that work and those that don't - it appears to be totally random.

When I was in Dubai, i had problems accessing Rumors and News, Jetblast, the Middle East forum and Private Messages.... the rest worked

Guess that it's a local restriction.

From Dubai & Abu Dhabi no problems with individual forums but sometimes a general failure. No pattern that I can discern. Usually connecting via a VPN. Windows XP and Mozilla Firefox. I don't think it's a UAE filtering issue - - - but what do I know.

Have noticed same for a few weeks now. Not limited to the ME forum. Sometimes only one or two forums, sometimes the whole lot are inaccessible with the usual failure message. I don't use a VPN and have had issues both in & out of the UAE. Maybe the servers are just getting a little overloaded.

I'm having an odd problem. Am in the ME. From my hotel's WiFi network I can access PPRuNe without any problem (just slow, like everything else). When I try to access it on my office WiFi, using the same laptop, I get a message saying : "Error message ..... resource moved to here", and the here is a link, and when I click on the link it just sits for about 5 minutes and then says : "Page failed to load". Anything else I want to access is fine, except of course the usual state-blocked websites.
