If I am posting this in the wrong place – I apologise in advance – please direct me to the correct place.
I have been using Raspberry Pi’s since 2011 I own seven of them, I also have two Banana pi’s and an Orange Pi.
At the weekend I started building a retro games console for my twin 11 year old nieces my hardware is coming along nicely – and I was planning on using the Raspberry Pi Model B running Retropie – but every time I go to the github download page for Retropi V3.6 I get the error below ?
This site can’t be reached
I first observed this error on Sunday – and thought there may be an issue with github – but its now Tuesday and the site still seems to be down – what am I missing – where can the retropie download images be found ?

just tested your link in the post above, downloads / works fine here (from belgium)chrisroseParticipant03/15/2016 at 15:29Post count: 3
Thank you for that – I have investigated further it seems my Internet Provider is blocking the link – if I use the TOR browser and past the link into that it works perfectly. Thank you for clarifying the link is indeed working – mystery solved – file is downloading fine now.

Just a quick tip. I have the same model pi. With default settings NES games sound would stutter. SNES lagged. You can test yourself and see. My issues went away when I used the raspi-config script to overclock the pi to 1ghz or 10000. I think its called turbo or something. You will need a heatsink or fan though to keep the pi running smooth.
Hope this helps!
