postimg.org timing out!

Hi gang,
Yes I know it's been awhile  Wink
I'm having problems reading on another forum that has links to images on http://www.postimg.org/
Most other forumites do not have an issue.
My question is do you have a problem with a timeout and if so is it a possible plusnet DNS issue?
Thanks for taking a look.

Re: postimg.org timing out!

There is something odd going on with that site
http://www.postimg.org/ redirects to http://postimage.org/
and either goes right round the houses
