12quarters.net has some great MGLN artworks. I tried to go to www.12quarters.net recently and it times out. It might be a temporary issue or a IP block.

Anny suggestions for a proxy?

Their site seems to be offline. If you can't load it using anonymouse, the web is probably offline for everyone.

I still can't get in with anonymouse. Maybe it's blocking US IPs?

I don't think so. Their server isn't responding to a ping, so it should be off line for everyone. Since today it's the first day of the month, maybe their host provider had some scheduled maintenance or something. Or maybe the artist forgot to pay their bill.

And as of this morning 12quarters is back up. The reason I suspected some sort of lockout was that my mobile phone's browser was able to access the page normally.

Incidentally I had asked 12q about providing larger size images of his work and his reply that he didn't feel he was good enough that it would look good any larger. <Shrug> Too bad,I do like his work on the backgrounds and the way he dresses the Belkans so casually I almost think they live somewhere around here.

I used a translation site and crafted my question as best I could in Japanese. Here is his response (also via a translation web site.)

Thank you for your message.
My name is Fuyumi, author of illust-site 12quarters.

Your message is very happy for me.
NANOHA is known overseas and loved as well!
I love it too. so, if you enjoy my fanfiction about NANOHA,
that is more joy for me.

I've received several requests to view larger images.
but I can't do that by 2 reasons.
First, light-weight-data may be useful for browsing.
Second, with regret, my drawing skills are still not good enough
to make images worth viewing larger...

Personally, I like the images on 12 Quarters because other than possibly Signum and Fate, there's no artwork that promotes shipping, which keeps all fans happy.

Wouldn't mind seeing some of the Numbers from him tho.
