I wonder if anyone else is having this problem.  When I try to access the Clackamas Advocates site, more often then not I get a DNS error message - site not available.  I would say that nine out of ten tries results in this message.  I'm using Internet Explorer 7, and I have no problem accessing other sites that I use frequently.  I don't understand why this occurs with the Advocates site.  Does anyone have any ideas?  Thanks!!

I agree with you. It's irrirating.

It's kinda Third World, but, here's the deal -- it's free.

Rob might have a solution.

I haven't found a solution other than hitting "reload" a couple of times, and failing that, waiting a little while, and then it works.  I've never been able to figure out exactly what the problem is, but I only have so much control over things here.

Free is a very good price.....

Thanks for the replies.  At least I know that I'm not the only one with this problem.  I'll just keep plugging along.  Whatever its faults, I do appreciate this website and all the information that's available on it.  Thanks, Donovan and Rob, and whoever else might have a hand in this, for making this website and this forum possible.

If anyone is still seeing these kinds of errors, please let me know.  We have moved the site to a new server, and it should hopefully be more reliable.  These kinds of errors are to be expected occasionally, but it was frequent before.  We shouldn't be seeing them.

The loading problem seems to be resolved. Thanks for all your efforts on this site.

Thanks for the feedback.  Glad things are working better now.

The effort is a labor of love, just like trail maintenance is.....
