Question
Is HK Site down?

Is HK website working? I don't seems to be able to access it. Got this message

"Safari can't open the page, because the sever where this page is located isn't responding". It only happened 2 days ago.

This site can be a handy troubleshooting tool for situations like this:

Clearing your browser cache, closing your browser, and trying a different browser, are also ways to try to get rid of stale data that cause it to appear that there is a problem, or that a problem that has been resolved is still occurring.

This is a great site and great advice. I actually have safari go down more often than not and a simple cache clear sums it up.

Server Error in Forum Application
An error has occurred while connecting to the database.
Please contact the forum administrator.

Support Error Code:- err_SQLServer_db_connection
File Name:- common.asp

Error details:-
Provider
Unspecified error
I'd let them know, however as all their support is on their website, there is no way too. Plus by the time they respond to a ticket, it would be another day and they'd figured that they have no orders coming in.

Si.

Some people really do panic because HK was down for an hour or so,well as you all must know now it's up and running again,i was just over on the HK forums (first time in a good few weeks) and it seems HK might soon be moving to a new website,they said with the amount of time they have left they will still be updating the current one,but i'm sure most of you all know that anyways as it isn't new news,something to do with ipads and of the like but us on IE will still be ok.

Its working fine here. Keep in mind they are doing a HUGE "cyber Monday" sale and their servers are slammed. I know I am checking every 45 minutes as they keep putting up new items on the hour. Already spent waaay too much
