I just had a very strange problem, and it was repeated several times (still happening). If I try to go to I get a 'The connection was refused when attempting to contact' message. I got to the forum by googling for javaranch and clicking on a link to the forum.

It seems I can move around the forum just fine, but if I try to go the the javaranch home page, either by typing in the address or clicking the link at the bottom, I get the connection refused message.

Ok, of course now that I posted it starts working, it happened over a dozen times, still a strange problem though.
