OP Hi Folks
A lot of us over this side of the Pond - definitely mav, Jo and I - have been unable to access AWAD, or rather wordsmith.org, for the last week . Especially, it seems, when our web connections aren't happening via a proxy server.
Yet to establish, but this may not just be a UK problem - could be Europe too. If any non-UK Europeans are getting through OK, please post something on this thread. Thanks.
Clearly it would be nice to know if anyone knows anything about this - I suspect "improved" security on a US-based link server (one at qwest.net, possibly). But why should this only seemingly affect transatlantic connections? Oh, and why is only wordsmith.org/AWAD affected?
Jo has attempted to contact Anu, but he's in Hawaii
Desperate times indeed!
P.S. My current connection is via a proxy server, as I'm at work
STOP PRESS - WE SEEM TO BE BACK!
Thanks for the support, folks.
My condolences, and deepest sympathies.

I've sent an email requesting assistance.
You-all might try a back door: tsuwm's site,
http://members.aol.com/tsuwm/ has a link to
A Word A Day. If you can get there, there's a link
at the bottom of the screen to AWADTalk.
Hi to those who are still around,
Being also in the favo(u)rite position to use our firms proxy server, I have not had any problems recently.

Thanks Jackie. Hope Anu has a deputy, if he's still in Hawaii. Or a laptop!
Much as I hate to intrude on anyone's holiday.
I suspect the "back door" will also be locked, as it still requires a link to the wordsmith.org server (in other words, we've tried getting to AWAD in general rather than AWADtalk in particular). But anything's worth a try, so I'll give it a blast when I get home.
I don't know exactly what a proxi server is, or if I am using it ( I suspect yes);
but in any case I had no problems in the last weeks - unless, maybe, something slower than before?
Hi - only 213 posts to read before I can write anything sensible (oh well, at least try to write anything sensible)- good to be back. I've only managed to get through to the site twice in the last week. Thanks for trying to help!
She's back. Can Mav make it too?
Oooh! what have I been missing?
I think I'll sell my brand new pile of electronics and go back to a hand-held adding machine.
I have been looking in occasionally over the past week or so, but haven't had time to post. Now it seems as though I might not have been able to anyway.
I feel a sort of disembodied frustration that I was here and able to share the real frustration that you all seem to have been experiencing.
