Subject: RE: Tech: Problems Getting Onto Mudcat
If you go to http://mudcat.org/ you'll get an answer randomly from one of four servers, brownie.mudcat.org (22.214.171.124), sonny.mudcat.org (126.96.36.199), huddy.mudcat.org (188.8.131.52) and a fourth one with the IP address 184.108.40.206 whose name I don't know. This fourth server seems to be unreachable, so you have a 25% chance that your call to mudcat.org will hang.
If you choose either brownie, sonny or huddy, you'll get an answer.
By the way, "Huddy Leadbelly" is a song sung by Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry on their album "California Blues". I wonder if this is the source of the server names.
