    I'd venture it's something with your router. Other than that maybe a virus? (if you're on a PC)

    Just go ahead and un-plug your router as well as your Internet modem. Keep them un-plugged for 30 seconds powering on modem first allowing it to make connection then your router.

    Also restart your computer(s) and it should take care of the problem.

    There has never been a virus in the wild that affects Mac OS X since it was released 10 years ago. The handful of trojans that exist can be easily avoided with some education and common sense and care in what software you install:

    We've been more aggressively blocking bots that seem to be auto-registering on our forums.

    Looks like your IP was blocked accidentally.

    Can you email me your IP Address (arn@normalkid.com) and I'll see about removing the ban.

    You can find out your home IP by visiting http://www.whatismyip.com/ from your home computer.
