Me too! In my case (twice since redesigned software) a crash and a BSOD. Only twice happened before since I loaded Windows 7 - and come to think of it, those were both caused by inserting faulty memory sticks.
Also getting a black screen between pages from time to time.

This block should be temporary, due to site security reasons.

It is because you are accessing PPRuNe from a country that has been attacking the site. Sorry, this should only be temporary.

I am in China Now, just to visit some city to consider bases. But only via VPN access the website.
So maybe not only Vietnam.

China is known to ban a shitload of web pages which allow free speech and social interactions. FaceBook and Watsapp are among them as they are highly encrypted and donít allow direct control.
What makes me worry is if this is a permanent ban which is very much AGAINST companies like JetStar Pacific, VietJet and especially State-Owned and State-Mismanaged Vietnam Airlines...
Low Time Pilots will take any job they can get their hands on, high-time and experienced pilots make decisions mostly on recommendations. We know how the industry dangles the carrot; we want to know if weíll get the carrot or not, and this is one of many mediums that influence the decision making process...

PPrune blocking access in Turkey

I tried to access PPRuNe in Turkey today but got this error message:


"Error 1009
Access denied

The owner of this website (www.pprune.org) has banned the country or region your IP address is in (TR) from accessing this website."


Anyone know why PPRuNe would be blocking Turkey? Normally it's Turkey blocking websites, not the other way around...

Just read about the state of aviation in the Philippines on here and you'll see why.

The truth can be painful.

I spend several months of the year in the Philippines,mainly in a Manila suburb and regularly access PPRuNe. PLDT supplies our internet - it can be unreliable at times but you can usually get PPRuNe.

My, the conspiracy theories are flying in here!

This is due to a 3rd party security system that is temp blocking a source of extreme spam. All will be back to normal soon enough.

As you're an administrator here you must have noticed pilots appear to be a paranoid group. Just saying.

Patience

PPRuNe is a small bulletin board that nevertheless has to take their Cyber Security very seriously. For sure they cannot afford what I might call State level security systems such as Amazon or Microsoft or Google might deploy.

It appears that a security software supplier has recommended that they take these steps to ameliorate certain cyber Security risks.

My view is that I would have patience and in the interim use a VPN such as the free one included in the Opera Browser if I was in a blocked region.
