I changed the DNS in my router settings, where all my network settings are.

I even flushed the DNS. No change. Still not able to open the site.

Opening of the site isn't that much of an issue, since I only wanted to download the image viewer, which I downloaded from other download sites.

But, the reason for site not opening for me has baffled me.

Another reason I can think of is that the site is for some reason being blocked by the government.

It happened before for a torrent site. There was no message, and the site just wouldn't open.

Recently, when I try to open the Avidemux site, I get the message that this site has been blocked by ministry of telecom. Same message is displayed on some other sites like the torrents.

I am confused why would they want to block Avidemux site

What a game! What a game!

Regardless of which team you were rooting for, it was a nail-biter....

Yes, it was fun. I enjoy watching Newton lose and banged up on the floor crying like a baby . Exactly what we got last night, thanks to the Broncos.

Late to the party but it's opening fine for me.

Here we have some websites also blocked by the local government for some political reasons. What I usually do to bypass the block is using a free VPN service.

When in desktop Chrome browser, I use the extension UltraSurf and when on Android mobile, I use the app Opera VPN. Both are quite easy to use and currently serve the bills.
