I finally was able to subscribe to the Times Archive but I am nowThe Times of London sent me the following reply.
having a hard time accessing website. When I try to click on an
article the browser stalls for a long time and then spits out the
following error message:
HTTP Status 503 -
type Status report
description The requested service () is not currently available.
Dear MarkUnfortunately, customer service never fixed my problem. So over the coming months, I would just have to accept the fact that I could not access their archives at certain times. When the articles wouldn’t load, I would continually hit the browser refresh button until they would load or until I ran out of patience.
Thanks for your email. We are sorry to hear that.
Was there a particular article you were trying to access?
