    Has FRYS gone out of business o_O??

    For a couple hours now I can't access frys.com, their online site. I get 403 forbidden.

    (877)688-7678 online & store support disconnects after a couple minutes.

    (40eight)487-4622 their ISP 24/7 live support number gets me an all circuits are busy response.

    And I've tried more than a dozen of their dialup access #s without connecting.

    Would be messed up for me as I'm trialing their dialup because it worked with Linux. Where my current ISP doesn't. I know this because they share 1 common access #. This # works for both in XP but only with FRYS un/pw in Linux.

    I wonder if M$ bought FRYS to keep me away from PCLinuxOS-2007. :isay:

    Their network COULD be going thru upgrades. I would try them in a few hours or maybe tomorrow.

    I doubt they're out of business. They were doing pretty well for themselves but I dont know for sure (I dont want to drive 20 miles to my nearest store).

    I can reach outpost.com just fine. Erik's explanation seems most likely.
