Has PRE been down lately?
For me, three times over the last week, I have not been able to get on to PRE, each time for a day or so.
The last of the three was the entire weekend just gone.
And each time when it's been back again, there has been no comments on the site as there normally would be when it's been down.
And I can see that there have been posts made over the weekend.

I wondered if it was something at my end so I emailed another PRE'er I know in the US and he couldn't get on either.
Is it something for us ex-pats only?

We flew into Thailand on Saturday and haven't had any trouble, just had to find places with wifi.

Yep, I’m in the US & PRE has stopped working through my WIFI. Only works now when I go on via my phone & on roaming data...really weird

I have checked across three different computers & same issue with all of them

Have never had an issue until around 2 weeks ago

Yes, I still have this problem too.
PRE won't work if I use anything (PC, tablet, phone) that is connected to my main router. No other website has a problem with this router.
But I have a secondary router (connected to a totally different ISP) and that works.
And PRE works fine for me elsewhere (e.g. from my computer at work).

I don't know how all this works but I'm guessing PRE's entry in a certain domain name server is corrupted and if your ISP dictates that you go through that DNS, you'll have the problem.
