What's up with KD site?

Every time I click on any link, e.g. this one:

MXDL SA-28 CREE Q2   http://kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=9567  it takes me to their "OOPS! Error made.." page. Anyone else get this issue?

It seems sorted now.

They redesigned the website, the old links no longer work. Sometimes you can get lucky by adding s0 or s00 to the number in the old url. Is this the item you were looking for? http://kaidomain.com/product/details.S009567

No, not actually sure what the link leads to as I can't get it, but it's definitely supposed to be a flashlight.. I had the same problem before and Vectrex supplied the correction below.

"old" link : http://old.kaidomain.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductId=11342 no good. But

"new" link: http://kaidomain.com/product/details.S010075 works fine.

Strange. But it's not just me, then?

@ VFM: "It seems sorted now" Do you mean it's working for you, VFM?

I didn't try your link because you said, "Every time I click on any link, e.g. this one:......"    So I tried lots of links (i.e. any links).  All were OK.

However, when I now try the link you put in the OP I just get the OOppps page not available page.

OOPS, Lensman error made.. Sorry, my bad. Should have said any KD link.

Don't get it, though. Presumably these links are copied and pasted directly from relevant pages, and if a link-click takes us to the correct URL..?Undecided

I did mean and try any KD link.   The only one I had trouble with at any point was the one in the OP when I eventually tried it.

I too amy pozzled by what you appear to have experienced.  I can only think it was a temporary DNS server error.

KD site wasn't nice, but now it really sucks.

That's even weirder. So all other KD links appear to work for you, EXCEPT the one I lifted from here: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/1042, whereas I can't connect through any link to KD, including other KD links in the above thread. Links to other sites work fine. Wonder if the original link in the thread would work for you before I hoisted it? Some bizarre communication problem between my pc and KD's site? Hmm..
