Weird. I hope it was a PBTKAS error and not the server. ;) At least you're both okay now. If it happens again, let me know.

Ok, so I tried again tonight and from home I can reach this site only when I'm logged into my work VPN.
When I log out of VPN, I get a "this page can't be displayed" message, and the button to "fix connection problems".

Based on those error messages, it sounds like you are using Internet Explorer. The site is working since you have no problem accessing it via VPN, and it sounds like your internet connection is working, at least partly. My bet is that it's something to do with your browser or operating system (OS), though I'd still like to check your IP and user agent to make sure neither of them are being blocked. You can get both your IP and your user agent from whatismyuseragent.com.

First, see if you can access other web sites to see if it's something particular to CCC.

Second, try a different browser. If you have no trouble accessing the site with another browser, you know it's the browser. If another browser doesn't solve the issue--though the messages may be different with another browser--then it may be something with your OS.

If it looks like a problem with just IE, I'd start with the suggestions in this post.

Keep me posted on what you find.

Hi Jays,

UserAgent shows: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko
IP: 63.192.50.92

I just tried visiting CCC using Firefox and got a similar message! Ugg...

Hmm... we've been doing a lot of video conferences with Japan lately. I wonder if some setting got changed as part of that.
I'll dig around a bit more on my end.

Thanks!

That user agent isn't blocked, and neither is your IP address, so we've eliminated those two things. It sounds like you're having problems with both IE and Firefox? Does it happen on other sites as well as the CCC forum? How about the main CCC site?
