Whatever it is, its getting worse. At least we have a couple of the old sites here still up.

LBF! Yeppie, it's so slow and sometimes I can't even get on there. Rekon we orta just move over here anyhoo? This is so much easier to navigate than the other one. Guess the old sayin is still true-you can't learn old dogs new tricks! old hoot gibson. Matt.24:44

Did they let anyone know this would happen? I get forbidden access when I try to get in. Whats up with that?

-- suz (, December 03, 2003.

The site crashed from what I heard . And to think , just about two years ago we were told this site was on it's way out .

Well , here we are ,2 years latter .

-- Steve (, December 03, 2003.

I have a lot of trouble even getting on the site. This comes up easily for me with my abyssmal connection. I hope everyone is well, and to all of those who know they are extremely special (all, huh?!) MISS YA!

-- D'reen (, December 09, 2003.

I am getting an access denied message too, and I really need the site right now. My goat is having a problem. I'll try goat world. Hope it comes up soon. Miss ya, love ya. Sancraft

I'm getting 'access denied messages, too. Hopefully it won't last long. Robin

-- Robin Pundzak (, January 23, 2004.

Yeah, I'm gettin the 'forbidden' thingy too. I needed to post on the barter board about my 90 year old mothers dolls she's afix'n to sell. She has a collection of over 30 years shes wantin to sell.

Wish they would fix the new site. Very difficult to get online there most of the time. old hoot. Matt.24:44

Access denied! I thought I upset someone! WaterSoluble

-- Kathleen Koch (, January 24, 2004.

I am also having problems with site.forbidden access. I paid the fee to access the site and now have no-way to get in. Can anyone get to chuck to see if problem can be fixed? lexi

-- lexi Green (, January 24, 2004.

LOL,, its a "paysite" now??

-- Stan (, January 24, 2004.

Same problem here -- wazzupwiddat, HT?

-- little mouse on the prairie (, January 24, 2004.

I was on for about 2 minutes this morning. There was a message on the admin board saying the board would be shut down for a couple of hours tonight. Then I was kicked out, and said access denied. I think we gotta be patient!

-- Nan (, January 24, 2004.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one with the Forbidden Access problem. I couldn't get in last night, but was on this morning for a while. NOw its back to forbidden access.

-- Jodi Miller (, January 24, 2004.

A day without HT is like a day without sunshine. I hope the site is back up and running soon.I miss all the good info and great topics. God Bless and stay warm.

-- Arnold (, January 24, 2004.

Thought I was kicked out! Any new word when it will be back up? Haven't been there for two days!

-- countrybumpkinlisa (, January 24, 2004.

Same thing with me. I am glad to hear I am not alone with the access denied. I hope it clears up.


-- Irene Burt (, January 25, 2004.

We are getting the forbidden message too. Any way to correct this? We sure do miss the old Countryside forum. Any chance of reviving it the way it was 2 years ago?

-- Hank (, January 26, 2004.

I've never been unable to get on for this long! I miss you guys :(. If any of our moderators see this, and know what's going on, will you let us know? I heard Gail in KY was a moderator on another forum. Anyone know what it's called?

-- MelissaW (, January 26, 2004.

I'm getting the "Forbidden" message, too. Does anyone know when it will be back up?

-- Jean Harrah (, January 26, 2004.

I just sent an email to Chuck via his personal web site, asking what's up with the board. I'm sure he's swamped so don't know when he'll get to answering, but when he does I'll post it here.

-- Nan (, January 26, 2004.

I haven't been able to get on since Friday, my DH and DS can't get on either. We've tried from 4 different computers. If you need emergency info you can try I know for sure you can get goat help thereand they have a Homesteading forum.

-- LaMom (, January 26, 2004.

I haven't been able to get there in a week... keep us posted.

-- comfortably numb (, January 26, 2004.

I am in Kabul this week and have been checking in (or trying to) a couple of times a day, lets hope Chuck gets those ducks in a row again soon. Not that I am complaining, I really enjoy the site and do not actually contribute much myself!

-- john hill (, January 26, 2004.

Is there anywhere else we can go? I thought my new cybersitter program was filtering the site out..............but apparently not :_(

-- Andrea L. Smitt (, January 28, 2004.

When I tried to check the status of the site yesterday I got a "info page" with a run down of what had happened. Their provider booted them it said and they are working at getting everything back up on another provider and redirected and all that good stuff. Poor folks didn't even get a warning before getting the boot. Safest bet to just keep checking back.



-- Honeybee (, January 28, 2004.

Forgot to say.... Tried to get back to that page today and it's right back to the forbidden page. Even the info page is gone.

-- Honeybee (, January 28, 2004.

I sure hope they can get back soon.

-- farm boy (, January 29, 2004.

When tryin to access the homestedin page the forbidden page come us. Minimize and click on another site. Hit the back button and you should be able to get on homesteadin today site. I can't seem to post anything and the posts on there are o ld but at least nobody stole the site! Har Har!! I read somewhere that Melissa sais they're in the process of movin to a new site but are havin some toubles.

Oh well--its snowy outside and I've still got pump troubles. Fix'n to work on it again today and try to figger out what's wrong. I'm beginnin to think I'm as dumb as a box of rocks!! old hoot. Matt.24:44

-- oldhootgibson (, January 29, 2004.

This is awful! Maybe we could start an e-mail version of a phone tree, or pick one alternative forum so that we can keep each other informed, or at least stay connected. Any ideas? We would have to use our HT screen names so that we recognize each other, like some of us have done here. I'm snowed in here, and I need my HT therapy to overcome this cabin fever! I checked out the other two forums suggested, but I didn't recognize any names, and I feel a little funny butting in on them. Who will take the HT orphans in?

-- MelissaW (, January 29, 2004.

Why not use this site for a temporary [or permnant] meetin place? I think I'll kinda use it even more than I did before. How bout it folks? old hoot. Matt.24:44

-- oldhootgibson (, January 29, 2004.

While I'm waiting for HT to get back up and running, I thought I would check out Barkerhill and TH.....I couldn't access them, how's that for feeling rejected ~ ROFLMAO!!!!!

When you only have a few minutes to spend on the computer and you NEED a HT fix ~ it's awful, just plain and simple awful. No one to yak at, scream at, laugh at, make fun of, nothing.....silence is not always golden!

I hope MeanDean and Chuck are knocking their heads together to get us back together.....are we all wandering lost in the woods!!!

Cheers everyone, it won't be long ~ MsPioneerGal

-- MsPioneerGal (, January 29, 2004.

I know this is an old thread, but it's happening again. I'm getting a message that says there is nothing configured at that site.

-- Jean (, April 27, 2004.

I haven't been able to access it tonight either. Seems there's a problem. I was just getting really into it and now it's gone! Boo Hoo! -BlueRidgeBabe

-- BlueRidgeBabe (, April 27, 2004.

Every time I try to access it something called Shopnav takes over as if it is doing a search for Homesteading Today. Very strange.

-- Terry - NW Ohio (, April 28, 2004.

I can't access HT either. Tried last night and again tonight. Last night another site would pop up and say Ht wasn't in their system. Tonight I get access denied.
