    I have a temporary copy up at http://www.troublefreepool.com/calc.html. If they restore their copy I will take this one down.

    I can access the site from my phone, but not from my pc. This would indicate a routing or dns problem (as opposed to the site being truely down.)

    that clearly points to a DNS/Router having issues/
    We need to figure out which isp is having the issues...
    my isp is TWC

    also haveing the actual ip address of the pool calc would help people bypass the DNS call.

    Re: pool calculator not working?

    The server is working just fine, but the content directory has been locked. I suspect that their hosting company did this after their site was hacked, though there are other possibilities. The big question is when will someone get around to fixing it.

    Some people are still accessing old copies that have been cached somewhere. For example my browser keeps loading an old copy from the cache, but when I reload the page I get the error again.

    I am with ATT Uverse. It works on both my Mac and my son's pc.

    My son has never visited the site before.

    Re: pool calculator not working?

    There might also be caching at the isp level. The poolcalculator is a static page and would be a prime candidate for caching.

    Looks like someone is trying to jack the dns

    Re: pool calculator not working?

    Yep... I could get at the pool calculator from work; however, from home I'm still getting the 403.
    Need to start listing who can get in and who can't and their ISP.
    Work: Frontier - no problems
    Home: TWC - 403
