Unable to connect to E-R.org

I was unable to connect to the site yesterday (Friday). I first tried to connect at about 7 p.m. and got a notification "Unable to connect to....[long string of letters and numbers]. I could connect to any other Web site of my choice, just not this one.
Tried several times during the evening - no go. Saturday a.m. I was back in.

Oops. The first Friday night of each month in which there are five Thursdays is an invitation-only gathering--I'll try to get you in to the next one .

Hmmm, I checked the FAQ and didn't see this custom mentioned...is there somewhere else I should look?

Please don't take this wrong, but...what could be the purpose of excluding people from a group, even occasionally, unless for bad behavior?

She was just joking, Amethyst. Sorry. Sometimes jokes just don't come across on message boards in the way they were meant.

So sorry, Amethyst--you would be the first person on anyone's list!

And E-R.org fortunately lets one make a poor joke once in a while without punishment. I hope.

someone who has never been invited to an invitation-only event in her whole life.

Amethyst, I broke out your post to a new thread. No one else has reported the problem you describe but we'll ask the technopower group to take a look at it.

Please post here is you have any further issues, but I think that this issue was temporary and has been resolved.
