  1. Has anyone tried to order from ExpressPCB lately? They seem to have
    disappeared from the radar.

    Has anyone tried to order from ExpressPCB lately?

    Yeah, I had three boards made up and delivered in mid-February without
    a problem.
    Whose radar?

  4. I just tried again...nothing. Won't connect. I can't even get their
    website to come up, even if I type their URL directly. Everything else on
    the Internet works fine for me. I tried last Thursday and Friday, then
    again Monday and today. Beats me.

  5. I read in sci.electronics.design that Don A. Gilmore
    I just tried, and found the web site OK, at:

    Hello Don,
    I just tried and it works. It could be a problem with the DNS server of
    your provider. Maybe maintenance or something is down for another
    reason. We had this a lot in the first year or so of broadband but now
    it happens only once or twice a month. Only for a few hours, if that.

    Sometimes a search for the company in Google followed by a click on the
    link helps.

    Regards, Joerg
     
  7. Try this, (bypassing DNS lookup):
    http://207.153.228.176/

    If that fails, you might want to talk to your ISP.
    They may have a router misconfigured. I've seen
    it happen that an address reachable from many
    points is unreachable from one. The main way to
    get that result is improper forwarding rules in a
    router. If that's the case, send them a tracert
    output. On Win{NT,2K,XP}, that would be:
    tracert www.expresspcb.com

    BTW, the site works fine for me too.

    Hello Don,

    Just one more hint: If your DNS server is indeed down and you absolutely
    have to get to the site for a quote or something you could try entering
    their IP address instead of the web address:

    207.153.228.176

    Regards, Joerg
     

  9. I tried the IP you gave and it does work, though the URL still doesn't. I
    guess I'll have to talk to IT. Thanks everyone for the help!

    Hello Don,
    IT might not be able to fix that unless you are working for a huge
    company that has their own DNS server. But they could talk to the ISP.

    We had TI disappear here for about three months last year. Nobody
    could understand it. Then it just started working again.

    If your DNS server is indeed down...try entering their IP address
    Any time you have such problems, use the IP Whois line here:
