    you should be able to figure it out...
    I haven't found it down at all lately. Sometimes it's a little slow, like all of the forums, but I haven't had any trouble reading new posts and responding to them.

    Maybe something on your end???

    Mike, I haven't noticed FujiXspot being down. Are you accessing it via computer or ? I go on via my MacBook Pro, my iPad and my iPhone at different times and it always seems to be fine.

    Perhaps if you can tell us more, someone can be helpful?

    well it's the only site I have problems with, so while I can't discount problems at my end it doesn't look likely :(

    I have found this for a couple of months or more.

    Very odd

    It is very odd. I know that in the past at least one member here had problems with this site due to the Internet browser he was using. What's yours?

    yes from my imac. it just hangs and once in a blue moon it loads up and works.

    well if other folk aren't having a problem that is very puzzling as, as I say, I'm not having this problem with any other site :( Most odd

    sorry I should also clarify - it lets me get to the main page but when I try to get to the forum - that's when it hangs.

    I wonder if Pentax/Ricoh has hacked your browser to prevent you from straying...

    It was Opera that pdh/Paul used to always have problems with. Here's hoping a good night's sleep will help!

    I'm on my mac, using Safari. No issues. all working fine. I wonder if you have some weird extension stopping things. Thats usually the problem when I find a site that wont load.

    Not sure what it's doing for you or why, but I haven't had any problems lately. Best of luck to you. (Also....I have forwarded this up the food chain to those smarter than I)

    Not really, I use Opera for everything and have very few problems these days. I see far more complaints around the 'net about IE and Chrome.
