    It happened yesterday... I went in to check the forum and BAMMO! HTF is a blocked site! [​IMG]

    They've also blocked Yahoo-mail and Hotmail!


    So, my visits here will probably become few and far between. I have to use a laptop plugged into an analog fax line and dial into my ISP just to get here!

    At least I got my HT mostly done before they cut me off.

    At least you have internet access at work. Starting next month, only managers will have internet web/e-mail access at my office.

    Ah, it's just a decimal long word of the HTF IP address, 207.153.159.182. In hex that's CF.AD.9F.ED, and in decimal CFAD9FED is 3484262381.

    Does your browser need some specific setting for those numerical addresses to work? Of course typing in the Ip address works, but in my IE 6.0, http://1077562467 does not work at all.

    Entering the number doesn't work for me either. I'm using IE6 as well. Stupid Microsoft!

    They probably blocked that in ie6, which sucks, imho. Back it up to 5 or 5.5 if you can. The above is a good explanation. Good formula, too! I remember seeing it in an article in 2600; a student found it to surf 2600.com in school, which was blocked.

    Thanks for the info, guys. I'll probably still use the dial-up... I ran a splitter and a phone line to my desk to plug in the laptop. No one will see it.

    I have no problem converting hexadecimals... I do that all day anyway.. but how do you find a site's IP?

    You convert hexadecimals all day but you've never pinged before?
