    Working fine here. Try switching to another browser to see if you're getting the same error. Could also be a glitch with your ISP.

    I received that a few days ago, but it loaded fine from my bookmark, so I didn't think twice about it.

    The home page loads fine again this morning - I have made no changes to browsers or anything else, but when I try to go to this thread directly from the link in the notification email, I now get the Error 404 -Page can't be found, again.

    That worked fine yesterday.

    I’ve posted elsewhere that Error 404 occurs with every email link to a thread. Been that way for about 4 hours prior to this post noted as 4.05pm. GMT.

    Jake. When you get an email notification from this post...can you please let me know if the link works now...or if you're still getting the error?

    Thanks,

    Nick, you might have fixed it.

    I just got an email about this thread and the link worked. They were not working earlier. I discovered that a few minutes ago when I tried to follow a link.
