    Works fine for me too, so the problems must be on your side unless you live in a country were slackware is blocked by the government or something similar, but that would be highly unlikely.

    Taiwan. I found out that it blocks certain countries, because it worked fine when I used a proxy server to connect to the site.

    That's weird, wonder what slackware has against Taiwan?

    Could still be a connection problem. I did not see any proof of Slackware blocking anyone. He's jumping into conclusions and I think it's too early to say that Slackware is blocking connections from Taiwan. Could be the proxy has a better and faster route to the Slackware server.
    I\'m so tired .....

    I know some people (smaller than Slackware) block all connections from Korea due to so much spam and attacks. Or perhaps slackware just blocked his isp for some reason

    Why don't you send them a mail.
    It could be a compatibility problem with their server.

    See:

    and pick:
    webmaster@slackware.com
