Hi,only just registered here and looking through the forum I've seen people receiving feedback on their site, and I thought that it was really good of people to do so.

So anyway, I thought I'd ask if you would tell me what you thought of my site: click here

please excuse some of the actual quality of work, I know some of it is really bad! I just want comments on usuability, look and feel, etc.

I host this site using a good FREE site: click here

10MG space.FTP. no pop-ups. only a TINY text link at the bottom of every page. its hardly noticable.

anyway, any feedback is gratefully received.

Clicked on the link and got

Forbidden
You were denied access because:
Access denied by access control list.

Same here on both links!

Good looking, nicely laid out site. Well done!

  GroupFC 22:06 07 Oct 2003

Same here as slowhand and anchor!

Strange -- just tried them again, OK!

So why is this?

OooErr!

I don`t know how Mango Grummit did it, but I still get:

Forbidden
You were denied access because:
Access denied by access control list.

Perhaps he is on the access control list.

i dont know what is going on here! Server faults i assume.

serves me right for being cheap and not buying one i suppose!

thanks to you all for relpying.

I tried again ..

first Click Here -- straight in to tomleady's site.

second click here -- no go, same as you now.

So I tried again using IE, Avant & Opera = all forbidden.

With my own browser once again -- tomleady's site is OK but second Click Here -- no go.

'tis strange! If FE picks up on this thread doubtless he will provide the explanation.

Just a suggestion...

It may be that you can only have so many visits/ so much bandwidth per day or month or something. As you've posted the link on the 'best' computer help forum you've had zillions of people looking at it which has blocked things out.

I was able to get on it shortly after you posted the link but haven't been able to do so since.

May be worth checking the T&C of the company you are using.

You may want to look at One&One for other hosting options which are cheapish (click here)
