Default What's up with Dyxum?

I have not been able to get to it for a couple days. Anyone else?


This is all I get.
Bad Request - Request Too Long

HTTP Error 400. The size of the request headers is too long.

you must be using a bookmark with too long a string. Go to www.dyxum.com and bookmark it again.

Check your browser setting! It could be set accidentally to block that site.

If you have a modem, try turning it off and back on. Sometimes when mine can't connect "re-booting" often fixes whatever problem was there. I think the "Internet tubes" get clogged.

I'd try a different browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, etc.) if you're using IE. Firefox is what I use virtually all of the time (I probably haven't used Internet Explorer more than a dozen times in the past year -- only to check to make sure we didn't have any issues with IE when users reported a problem).

Get Firefox here:

http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/

If you're using a newer version of IE, it looks like there are some compatibility mode settings to emulate an earlier IE version so that it handles some http headers differently. Here's a page about how to try that kind of thing:

If you can't get it to work any browsers, it may be related to something mentioned in this bulletin (found searching for your error):

I'd suggest the as Jim. Try a different browser or clear the cache (not browse history) of your current/primary browser.
