That's fate. It means you must now stay here forever and never, ever leave again.Visited the forum just 5 mins back, was surprised myself to see that I was the only member logged on (it showed only my name there on online list similar to the picture Kim posted).
I was like...what :O Now I know xf was down and I just happened to return the minute it was back xD
Why had your host blocked the IP, that sounds strange. I can imagine this would happen on a shared server if you was getting hammered (bots / dos / brute / lots of users taking up resources) ... To give fair resources to others on the server, but this isn't on a shared host (I assume) ???Mike fixed it. The host had blocked the IP.
