Dear friends,

I'm going nuts. I can't get on to YouTube and get my CSI fix and I can't even see any Youtube videos here.

Anybody know anything about this. Can you guys in other countries see this?

Thanks Desperate Jenny :-5

Hi Marie,

It's been off since I logged on this morning which was about 10.00 am my time here in Ireland. We now have 14.26.

I can't even access the website at all. :(

Here, I will try it, I am over here in the south east, I am on eircom broadband always on, so if it doesn't work for me then there might be an issue about it. :thinking:

Sounds like your Antivirus or your internet provider is blocking it.. Did you do any updating of security software??? Sometimes that will cause problems big time.

Thanks for the replies guys, I haven't anything running differently to yesterday and it worked then. Our service provider is Ballincollig community broadband and they are always up and down but all other sites seem to be working. :-5

Have you tried the "sneakin up on it approach", by going to Googlevideo, and linking to Youtube....:thinking:

Oh thanks Dubs, I'll try that. Nope won't work.

Could my service provider be blocking it for some reason. Any way to find out??

Doubt it, Jen.

When's the last time you checked for spyware and adware and other computer nasties?

I used to go on it, do sometimes to look up funny animal clips, I love those. Prefer XTube though, much more fun. ;) Apologies and grammar I think you meant. ;)

I just saw an item on tv saying they have invented a new table game called "Mind Ball" One person sits at each end of the table and puts a headband on. It has a wire from the headband to under the table. By using mindpower alone, you force the ball towards your opponents end. Game costs $13,000. I think if one had a weak enough mind to pay that much they would lose every game. Heeeeeeee.
