Is 1858Rem "down", or is it just me?

Hello Forum Members!

The morning of Oct 20, 2015 at 6:20am EDT, 1858Remington.com was down.

There is a nifty web site that lets you check to see if a web address is being *blocked* to you by your ISP (or your employer, or the free WiFi you are surfing), or if the site is actually "down".

I verified the situation by going here:


If the site is down, you will get a "looks down from here" message.  Otherwise, you get the home page.

I am presenting this tool in the event you run into similar situations.  Copy that link, bookmark it or save it on your desktop or put it in a Word document or tape it to a sticky on your revolver.  Whatever works for you, but do not expect to log back in to use the tool. )L$

Thanks for that link. Sometimes, as you say, you just don't know if your provider is having a problem or if the site is down.
