Sorry, that's one of the automatic subnet blocks that only Terry can do anything about. He may accidentally have entered something that the system didn't like or someone on his network may have misbehaved.

It'll clear up in a few hours if Terry doesn't get to it first. (Terry, recent IP from just a few mins ago is logged on his account)

I just checked my messages and saw this note from RJ.

"I am blocked from the site and only Terry can unblock me.

My guess is I'm blocked because my cat stood on my keyboard after I signed on and left the room for a cup of coffee. When I came back into the room and removed the cat from the keyboard, I noticed my name was on the board for TvT and I was locked out with Error 403 displayed. The rapid scrolling caused by the cat on the keyboard apparently triggered an automatic blocking of my IP address. I found an anonymous proxy that would allow me to sign on and tell someone of my plight.

Please help."

Don't panic Dave, he's probably sitting on his porch having a few brews and mellowing out whilst the problem gets sorted.
Whilst you sound in need of some yoga. Close your eyes, imagine yourself on RJ's porch, breathe calmly and deeply through your nose out through your mouth.
Now imagine a beer in your fist.

You're not giving Terry enough time between your comments. No matter how anxious someone is to get to this site, it still takes time. I'm guessing Terry's not at his computer, on FunTrivia, 24/7

RJ, I told our team. Help is on the way! I remember TVC. We've helped our own in the past! No matter what! I love you, RJ! You're a good guy!

For heavens sake, someone please throw a bucket of cold water over cubswin before he hyperventilates himself into a dead faint.

On second thoughts... don't bother. wink

No, the yoga isn't cutting it.
I think we might need a strait jacket and a shot. Your distress rockets and flares have been noted, now you just have to wait. Screaming will just give you a sore throat.

That's MY guy! He's locked out, and the team needs him. It might be seen as "too dramatic", but that's my guy, Flopsy! It just is! When you're on my team, I'll go to the end of the Earth for you! I'll go that way for my old TVC-ers, too! I know them. They are in my charge!

He's got chores you know, can't be on trivia with his mates all the time.
It's probably a Sign that he needed to go and rope something or ride something instead of being glued to his seat.
Do you make corndollies in Nebraska? It is a very relaxing craft.

Cubswin, the chances of my being on the same team as you are less than zero so I'll never know what you might do for me. The very idea is almost enough to turn me to religion.

Patience! smile

Still plenty of time in the day for RJ to come back on and post a high to mid-range score in TvT. wink

Play nicely, people.

He has cats and dogs and horses, he should be grateful that it wasn't a random polo pony standing on the keyboard. That would have been harder to fix.

Terry will get to RJ in due course. I was locked out for almost 20 hours one
day last year. In the interim, here's a story about a dog eating a passport:

Cardiff Blues: Jason Tovey's puppy eats his passport
11 January 2013

A Welsh rugby star has had to pull out of an important match in France after his puppy chewed up his passport. Jason Tovey, 23, was all packed and ready to go to the airport to fly to Toulon to play for Cardiff Blues when he found his ruined passport.

He said he was dreading telling his coach that he could not play in the Heineken Cup game on Saturday. "It's a bit like the old schoolboy excuse that the dog ate my homework," he added. The outside half's Labrador puppy Buster had even left his teeth marks on the passport, which now has gaping holes in it. "Buster is always chewing things but usually it's my sock and shoes," said Tovey. "As soon as I saw the passport I thought I'd never get through airport security with it. "I was dreading telling my team coach, I didn't think anyone would believe."

He was due to face England star Jonny Wilkinson's Toulon team but will instead have to watch the game on the television. Tovey will also have to pay £103 for a new passport ready for his team's next match abroad. He added: "I'll be keeping it on my top shelf - well out of the way of Buster's sharp teeth." A Cardiff Blues spokesman said: "Jason rang to say what happened - he's in the doghouse."
