I had no trouble with the site until shortly before Christmas. Details here: http://www.secularhomeschool.com/technical-issues/15278-my-isp-banned.html

I have also emailed Topsy, but forgot to mention that I don't even get a response when I ping from command line.

I have been posting from Tor since 12/14/14 or I would genuinely believe that the site no longer existed.

HTH and I am so sorry you're having to deal with all of this

No go with Win7 or an android phone either.

I had a problem with a site like that a few years ago. For my situation, I had to go into my router settings and change from OpenDNS IP addresses (208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220) to Google's (8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4).

I hope you can find a solution. I know how aggravating it is.

Have you heard anything back from Topsy? If not, I will check back with her.

Nah, not a word.

Now I'm getting captchas when I try to log on with tor, which I really don't have enough eyesight left to deal with, so I'm absolutely not flouncing or anything, just messing around with my router and/or using my adult kid's data plan for serious homeschooling questions.

Take care, all.

Here's the official advice I got from our tech support when I mentioned your issue..
Considering it works with tor and not normal browsers - as well as the fact that its on multiple machines it could be the dns provider has bad info. Since she's running ubuntu OS she should be able to do a 'nslookup secularhomeschool.com (http://secularhomeschool.com/)' from her command line. That should give her 104.24.119.99 and 104.24.118.99.


​Hope that helps!

Thanks, Topsy. I've been too busy with octogenarian parent stuff to do anything about the situation other than type nslookup into a terminal window and cry, so I have no idea whether you guys fixed it for me or my ISP fixed it for me, but I do owe somebody an acknowledgement of my appreciation. :) :) :)

Thanks, Topsy. Love you, girl, and thanks for the awesome site.

The first thing I did was check it out on some lightweight, dial-up friendly browsers and do a happy dance for my bandwidth-challenged sisters. :) :) :)
