I wanted to list my faux cupcakes...and I couldn't load Etsy!!! Arrrrgggg!!!!!

I've already finished taking pictures of my handcrafted faux cupcakes. I'm ready to list them on Etsy. Etsy is a great site for people who wants to sell their craft products. However, for some unknown reasons, I suddenly couldn't load Etsy.com both in Firefox and Explorer. I thought that it could be a firewall thing, and that it's blocking Etsy. But even though I turned off my firewall I still can't seem to load that web site. I searched the internet for what could possibly be the culprit. I found out that there are people who are experiencing the same problem...and not just on Etsy, but also on some other secure sites. Some says it might be viruses like Malware that's preventing me to open the site. I did ran a scan to check my computer for viruses and potential attacks, and it's clean. So to be sure, I even reformatted my computer! But the problem persists. Some says it has to do with random DNS ....which I have no idea about!!! For three days I longed to see Etsy. And it's killing me. I ended up listing my products on other sites like DaWanda and SilkFair (which is not a bad idea!....and DaWanda is a great site for crafters, too!).

And now is my day 4 without Etsy, and no reply from my ISP!

Last night, out of my frustration, I went out to surf the net in a cafe! So there, I get to list my stuff on Etsy. Yeeeey!!!!

I just hope my ISP would call me anytime soon and help me fix the problem. :p
