www.blendernation.com

takes me to a search portal page as if the site has been replaced or taken down. I can click the link on the www.blender3d.com website and get the same result.

maybe you have some sort of trojan, spyware or else "malware" on your PC, which redirects you to some other sites. since the site works and is reachable, I would think that rather your PC got hacked. did you try a anti-virus check?

Aye, Im clean. The site is working for me right now.
Its an intermittent thing which is what led me to believe it was the site itself....perhaps experiencing some service issues or something.

Theres nothing about interruptions on the BN site though.
Ah well its currently working for me again...

I did notice another spam stickie that cropped up yesterday or day before on the blender forums here though. *chuckle* Who got hacked?

We've experienced no problems with our server at BlenderNation. The fact that both BlenderNation and Blender.org gave you the same problem leads be to believe that there was an issue at your and or maybe with your ISP. (BlenderNation and Blender.org are hosted at different companies).

Still, it's good to hear that they're both fine now!

Cheers,
