    Whether I click the link from my bookmarks, type gbatemp.net in my address bar, or google gbatemp and click the link, my laptop takes me to a gbatemp error page that says "the requested page could not be found". It still has the links for forums, chatroom, downloads, etc. so I can get around (though clicking "home" just takes me back to the error page). My desktop and netbook all display the home page correctly so.... I've probably just done something stupid, but anyone know what's going on and how to fix it?

    Is it universal or does it affect a single browser? What setup (OS, browser, versions, etc) are you using?

    Okay, just cleared cache cookies and history from within firefox browser and everything is loading right again. Weird because I'd tried running Ccleaner already which I thought did the same thing. Well, like I said, I figured it would be something silly. Thanks for the help guys.

    Cool. I'll keep that in mind for the future - 1st time I've ever run into an issue like this.
