Possible Solution for those of you with Freebie download issues

Okay, so I’ve done a little research tonight (after spending all day on a field trip on Saturday with my students) on the problem a few of you have mentioned about getting a “too many redirects” error message when you try to download the freebies Connie graciously gives away here on the blog.  Let me first say this, I’m not a technology specialist.  I don’t know a whole lot about what works on the backend of most things.  I may be totally wrong so proceed at your own risk.

From the comments that have been left, it appears that those of you who have been having issues are using Safari.  Safari sometimes doesn’t like to play nice with others.  This solution was found on several different websites but I’m only linking to one that seemed the most straight forward:  Connie is not connected with this website and neither am I. 

Basically it sounds like your cookies and cache may be part of the culprit as well.  It use to be common practice to clear those once a month as well as defragmenting a computer.  Those practices seem to have fallen by the wayside over the past few years but I do know that my computer runs better when I clear my cache and cookies and do a disk defrag every now and then.  Maybe try doing those two things first and then if you are still having problems check out the link above or so a search for “too many redirects error message in Safari.” 

I hope this helps some of you.  I do apologize but that’s about the extent of my ability to solve what’s going on.  I haven’t been able to recreate the error on my end using Chrome or Microsoft Edge.  I didn’t try any other browsers because I’m not currently running any others.
