    I'm getting a different message, but same ultimate result. Could be related to site problems with spam or other thing like that. I know other forums have been hit hard with spam recently that wasn't easy to resolve.

    Here is what I see when I try:


    This site is temporarily unavailable.




    Hosted by Network Solutions.

    Obviously the site is down. I get 'The site is Temporarily Unavailable'. Maybe they are doing maintenance?


    What is it with Anchorage websites? Speedway has been down for months....

    Speedway has been working fine for months...at least two.

    akspokes ran out of bandwidth and their host shut them down. I read they are correcting this issue and should be back online by this weekend.

    perhaps...

    ...more people should have become "Gold Members"...I don't think hosting a domain(?) is free...

    Jordy's right. It's a bandwidth issue. It has to do with a security patch not getting updated in time, and the bandwidth issue shot up overnight, so the host shut down the site.

    This is being fixed by the people who know how to do such things, and akspokes will likely be up sometime tomorrow.

    That's funny - I have been trying to log on to an old url for months!! Wonder why no redirect for Speedway? Thanks for the link. New site looks good!

    I have been always surprised to see that some of the most prolific posters are not gold members. Maybe they contributed in other ways? Glad it is there - AKSpokes was a long time coming.

    I just figured...

    ...$25 was the least could do to help support a local, non-corporate, mostly non-commercial forum where we get to come together and see half-nekked men enjoying each-other's company in the confines of an Alaskan porta-potty...my eyes are still bleeding...

    I was almost going to ask for a refund after that pic. I don't think it was the first time it was posted either!

    I got two or three messages saying the same thing over the last hour but I still get the site is temporarily unavailable message and domain not valid??

    Did they change that address too?

    Based on what was posted above, it had something to do with not installing a security patch right away leading to something that the security patch would have prevented happening to flood the site using up the allotted bandwidth. This is speculation, so maybe someone else can elaborate if they know details.

    Seems pretty secure against page views or posts.
