So that you can retry after a couple of minutes :)
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

I don't know why it was down, and I'd say there's a good chance that nobody does. It may not have even been down for everybody. Stuff happens. But I do have to say that a couple of the responses here gave me a chuckle.

it happens - - I'm often hitting that 'securi server' issue, on many occasions.

so, I've just check that the Forum is still UP & the main Site is also UP
& thus put the issue down to my ISP or my MBB connection.

I got a "Firewall" error from the server. "Firewall may be blocked from the server. / Server may be offline" It wasn't a google error.
