Failed to Submit Online Forms

Tuesday, March 21st, 2006

Have you ever experience that you can’t submit any online form? Each of the sites I visited loaded up correctly but when I submit my login information, it responded with page not found. And this happened when I have an important reservation to be made online, before I go to bed!

I did whatever I can to fix it, but with no success. I tried to restart my router, used IE (instead of Firefox), check windows processes for any unknown application, spend a long time to scan for viruses and finally I called up my friend to see if he’s experiencing the same problem. It seems like I’m the only one with the problem.
