I've got no clue why, but I can't even get to anything when I type in any improbable island link I know of.

The site is redirecting me to http://improbableisland.com/cgi-bin/redirect.ha

and the page is simply a 403 error saying I have no access to that area of the site:


You don't have permission to access /cgi-bin/redirect.ha on this server.
Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at improbableisland.com Port 80

Does anyone know what could be causing this? I've changed nothing that I know of, and I don't have a clue what could've made this start happening.

This seems to be a browser and/or modem bug that may or may not have something to do with handling a DNS error. A google on cgi-bin/redirect.ha comes up with a number of other people encountering the same problem. The examples I saw were with Chrome on AT&T. That was back in 2013 -- it could be happening elsewhere now.

Anyway, there was a recent DNS issue with the Island. Not sure what, CMJ or Omega may be able to offer more details about exactly what happened, but it's all resolved now. If you're still stuck, try a different browser, or clear your current browser's cache and cookies, see if that helps.
