Site was down - after that no sound anymore!

Hello, today I couldn't access the website at all, and after it got back I couldn't hear any sound from the practices. I use Chrome under Win 7, I checked Firefox and it's the same. I didn't install or did anything to my browser or computer in the meantime. Refresh, restart PC etc doesn't work. Flash up to date. Java up to date. :S p.s. sound works everywhere else

Sorry that you're having this problem. I haven't heard of any other users having this issue. Are you still experiencing issues connecting?

Ok so I managed to fix the problem and I am writing so that people can try this if they get the same problem. Few hours after my post the site went down for me again and I couldn't access it - only this site, everything else worked smoothly. When I tried with proxy it was online and sound worked. So it was probably the problem with DNS of my internet provider or something, since I changed the DNS settings from automatic to Google public DNS and I was able to access the site AND the sound was working again.

It's great to hear that you were able to fix the problem! Also, it's good for us to know that you were having a DNS issue and may suggest this as a fix in the future.
