      That was quick.

      It seems to me that it usually takes ages for a site to acknowledge & then act on reports of this nature.
      If at all.

      The admin of the webcams have specifically blocked my ip address
      They have caught up with you. You know you should not have got into that pub brawl back in the day.

      Well, I hope they are being honest.

      I am communicating with the admins via the town council.

      I will give it a couple of days before contacting them again if I still can't get access.

      As an admin of a board myself, I can imagine why they would block my ip. They would have assumed I was doing something naughty!

      Quite the opposite actually! I really fell in love with the place and still have friends there after almost 35 years of leaving there.

      I do visit every few years or so. Some of my strongest and happiest memories are from there. Two of my children were born whilst I was there, one was born in Germany, so it is a huge part of my past, even though it was only for 4 years.

      Nah, I was a good boy. Even back then during the late 70's you could drink 24/7 in Germany but I never became aggressive.
      I always had a stupid smile on my face and wanted to be everybody's friend.

      I still cannot access this site even though I am being told that my ip address has been unblocked.

      I have tried rebooting my router a number of times to try and get a new ip address, but always get the same one.

      Not a happy bunny!

      If you can still reach the site by using a proxy, i'd suggest that they perhaps haven't quite been successful in unblocking your ip address.

      Yes, I agree.

      I have emailed again but they seem to only access their emails once a day.

      I might power down my router tonight in the hope that in the morning when I power back up, I will have a new ip address.

      Success!

      I powered up the router this morning and I have a new ip address.

      I can now access the web cams again!

      Just hope they don't notice the same activity from your new IP and block that one! :P

      I was given the admin's email address yesterday, so if it happens again, then I can contact them direct.

      I have increased the delay in the time that my screensaver changes webcam image in the hope I am not so noticeable.

      I am probably going to be visiting the town next summer, so might just pop in and say hello to them if I can find out where they are based. My guess is that they are somewhere in the local council offices.
