Chrome won't let me access the Metafilter homepage--among other issues. I am not having this problem with Safari or Firefox.
I have AT&T Uverse DSL, and have done for some time now. In the past... day? Or so, I can no longer get to www.metafilter.com by using Chrome (I can get to posts on the blue by going to metatalk or to ask and then navigating via Recent Activity, etc.). When I put www.metafilter.com in the URL field, I am redirected to "http://www.metafilter.com/cgi-bin/redirect.ha" and the screen says:
You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/redirect.ha on this server.
Apache Server at www.metafilter.com Port 80
I emailed the mods, and Matt said a little googling revealed there's some kind of glitch with AT&T Uverse and the Metafilter homepage. If it were *only* the Metafilter homepage, I would post this to MetaTalk, but I've discovered that in the same recent period of time, Chrome has started stalling out loading my tumblr dash after a few screens' worth of posts. I just get the "loading more posts" message and the spinning wheel. Again, no problem with Safari or Firefox.
I have rebooted the computers and I have restarted the DSL modem (including turning it off and taking both the Ethernet cable and the power cord out of the modem so that it has to completely reset).
Does anyone know what's going on, or if there's anything that can be done? AT&T have no answer for me, naturally.
If it matters, I'm on a Mac, but my roommate is on a Windows machine and having the same problem.
