    Recently, when I try to access GBAtemp my browser says 'Cannot find server at GBAtemp.net'.
    I am able to access it sometimes, but not all the time.

    It's very difficult to tell where this comes from.

    The site loads perfectly for me and for some people, and for many others it won't load (unless using a proxy).
    I don't have an explanation but I'll try to solve this issue using regular procedures: restarting server, tweaking the DNS configuration, etc..

    Same as Austinz here. Flushed my windows DNS and initially no change so I guess it was something a bit higher.

    Also while Costello tweaks server side you might try openDNS or something similar:

    If you want proxies:

    This is the first time since 10PM (EST) yesterday that I've been able to login. Maybe it has something to do with the gnarly storm that's raging through the USA right now.

    Seems to be working fine now though.

    I had troubling accessing the site from work all day. I got home and was able to do it fine, but got the same server issues.

    Maybe a Denial of Service (DOS) attack type of thing?

    Nope, if it were the case no one would be able to access the site at all.

    very odd that it's only certain people having problems

    Site was so slow it wouldn't even load last night, but it seems to be ok again.
