Housebound and can't get my most important site

  joseph K 22:20 07 Oct 2004

At the moment I am unfortunately housebound, consequently I am doing my shopping at

Suddenly I find that I can get any website except (this has been happening for the past 36 hours or, so).

Has anyone got any ideas please, as I am at a complete loss. Even more so because I am able to get Tesco's Irish site which is almost exactly the same. This seems to rule out any likelihood that any of my settings may be wrong - a long shot anyway as I am able to get anything else.

I use neotrace and have found that the signal goes into the Bristol Channel (approximately Lundy) and then stops.

Could anyone have messed this up from outside. I'm thinking that perhaps a friend is having a 'laugh'.

I'm certainly not being flippant here, but how about Sainsury online? or Asda? are theya aviilable in your area?

I have 'webroot washer pro' set to wash just about everything Stallion. As for the other supermarkets Ange(the fellow hippy), I am a bit out in the sticks on the Gower Peninsula, so I am only able to shop from Roll on being able to get out again!

I remember going to Lundy Island many years ago when I lived in Bideford, it was on the Oldenberg Ferry I think. Can't think of anything there that would stop the signal (rather bleak as I recall). Sounds like a problem at's end.

I'm getting the 'Page cannot be displayed etc. etc.' page no matter which way I try it.Thanks for the link, but the same result unfortunatly. Having given me that, I presume you have no difficulty Smegs

Here's the grocery log in page for an alternative shot at it.

I could try sending you the home page as an e-mail attachment for another attempt if you wish.

Same again I'm afraid. Thanks for the offer of the e-mail, I would really appreciate it. How can I let you know what it is without broadcasting it?
