Subject: Anyone having problems accessing Mudcat
From: nutty
Date: 30 Oct 01 - 02:02 PM

I'm putting the thread here rather than HELP because I can no longer access help or loki or dharma or ragtime or even shorty directly.

This has been happening all day and the only way I can get into the Forum is via the DT on an old Supersearch thread. Once in everything is as normal ---it's very strange

I suspect the problem might be with Netscape but would like some confirmation

Intermittent.
I find the www.mudcat.org (shorty) server to consistently be the slowest, so I generally come in on the ragtime or dharma server.

Jon has a lot about it on his Annexe and has included the info in the help. I can access nothing except through the Ip numbers followed by /threads.cfm.

Jon said he couldn't either and also cannot reset his cookie, nor can I. Jon thinks it has to do with some DNS's.

The numbers are:

www.mudcat.org = 204.108.149.105
loki.mudcat.org = 204.108.149.160
ragtime.mudcat.org = 204.108.149.131
www.help.mudcat.org - 204.108.149.23

I have to follow any of those with the /threads.cfm to get anything. THANKS, JON!

Max may have moved the servers to his apartment, and that's what's causing the problems. I dunno - I'm still not having any problems. I DO notice that a bunch of people seem to have had their cookies snatched.

I think the reason that there seems to be so many different experiences here is that IP addresses seem to be cached at various parts in systems which can include the borwser's cache.

I have just remembered the problems some people had when the Annexe was moved to a new server and new IP address. Some people got all the new site, others the old and some a mixture of both. Im my case, I had to clear all by browers' (3 of them) caches before they would constantly retrieve pages from the new IP address.

This is weird - I can access Mudcat by typing www.mudcat.org into Netscape on a Windows machine here in my lab, but when I try it on my Mac, running through the same NIH connection to the outside world, I get a "Server not found" message - hence my current cookie-less state.

If the IP numbers and domain name haven't changed, perhaps it's the route used to get there, or some router in the system. It may be individual ISPs that haven't updated their info. Just more guessing on my part.

You could always just create a shortcut to the IP address. I just use my back button a lot, but Joe Offer doesn't like back buttons.

The IP address is the same as always, by the way - something else is buggered. I have a feeling it'll work itself out in a day or so.

Clicky for Ragtime IP number
Clicky for Loki IP number

Intersting - I got a fast direct hit on my log on now, after returning from the Royal Oak. ( using the generetic threads, 21.30 ish (GMT) - but it does seem to me that the number of posts between 19.00 and 21.30 GMT is less than I would normally expect for a Tuesday night. ( perhaps a JoeClone could give some objective statistics ??)

I had difficulty logging on earlier (used Google) and again at 20.40 ish GMT. (ne or two threads returned a "Server Error"). No difficulty with any other Webpages.

There is a problem, as part of this problem could it be that those who are completely B******d loging on unable to report ???

Just a thought, but MAX does this need some deeper investigation ???

I just talked to Max. He's in between moving everything from hsi office to the apt. and in the shuffle didn't get the mail which said his Domain Name bill was due for mudcat.org, so the problem has been that Network Solutions shut it down. He quickly got on the phone and paid it and it should be back up and running in its usual fashion, I think he said, in 12-24 hours, maybe longer, but I don't think it will take that long. Network Solutions knows it was important, as it was Onstafe, too, so it should be soon!

He said it's been so crazy, doing major cleaning out, trying to get everything moved and the DSL installed in his apt. etc. that it reminds him of finals week at college! Ten more days and then he said his life will be mucho better and much more normal, Mudcat, too, as long as everything does what it is supposed to when he gets it up and running in the apt.

IF there is any downtime for Mudcat, it could be between this coming Friday through next Tuesday and could be for a few days, so I would encourge you all to check out Jon's Annexe at www.jonbanjo.com/forum/forumlist.asp

Max has booked his first professional gig on the 15th of the month and is really excited about that; says it's his first time since college. I told him he'd been doing great on Mudcat radio and would knock 'em dead.

Anyhow, that's the news from what I hear. Pretty soon we'll all have our own cookies, again, and the PM's'll fly!**BG**

kat, when I went through the change with Namezco (who incedenally I would now thoroughly recommend to any UK users wanting a bit of space with some processing power - service that been excellent since they moved me), the guy I delt with on the system suggested that in his experience, it can take up to 48 hrs for a DNS change to filter through the system.

OK, the IP addresses have not changed here but I think system catch up times where caching is involved on subsystems may take more than 12/24 hrs for some users...

I bin noen ta do tha same thang my own self. Sumtimes tho it kin wurkout fer ya. Back when me an Paw an the Reg boyz had owr porta-shitter bizniz callt "Crappers On Casters" I dun forgot ta make a paymint on the trayler whut we uzed ta haul em round on. Thay sent two fellers ta take it back ta the trayler place an when thay seen whut it wuz we wuz a totin on it they jus left her rite thar an I got owr paymint stuff fixt all up.

Funny thang tho cuz jes taday we wuz down ta the trayler playz trine ta sell her back to that feller sinz we dint need her no mor an thet sumbitch wernt gonna do it til Paw passed sum reel awful gas in hiz office an then took out a match. Thet feller began ta see it owr way then but I dunno thet he cud reely see atall sinz hiz eyes wuzza watrin reel gud. I gess i cuddent see none too gud either cuz tha check he gave uz wuz fer a hunnert dollarz insted uv a thousand dollarz so I gess we all took a fuckin witha smile. I figger tho it'll be a month ur so bfor tha smell gitz outta' hiz office.

Whut it wuz thet reely made me mad tho wuz while we wuz down thair, Catspaw wuz at home with thet Joe Offer guy he callz Father Joebro an when we got back he wuz gone so we dint git ta say howd do er nuthin. catspaw sez thet Joe is a purty nice feller an he aint so bald yet but it izza gittin thin.

Your "guestlessness" is intriguing me and I'm as interested as you to find how you and a couple of others are getting in as normal. Perhaps you have your favourites stored as IP addresses?

Ah yes...that letter from Network Solutions should not be overlooked. Every two years I nearly do as well but have just "snuck in" with my pament before being cut off!!!

I had no problem getting in yesterday evening, in the middle of the night (couldn't sleep), and this morning, all with my cookie. I used my bookmarked URL for Mudcat that I've had forever http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm (Netscape, on a Mac).

We have been getting in some with site names, but have been getting disconnects frequently. Of course you only know you've lost it when you try to move around.

Connection with the URL #s seems most reliable, but I note that my cookie needs reset when I come in that way, and I'm (for now) unable to get in to do that.

I have set the URLs as alternates in my favorites - for future use.

As I understand it, your server asks the nearest router if it knows how to connect you. It looks to see if it knows how, and if not, asks the next router down the line, until eventually you get there. If something changes, some routers may retain bad addresses for a certain time - so they give you a bad address and you don't get connected. Every time you send a request, it's pot-luck on which string of routers you go through, so it's a crap shoot until they all get updated.

As I'm not too well informed in this area, I may be acting the bad router - so please don't get too excited out my displanation.

I'm expecting things to be back to normal soon.

John

Well, my cookie seems to be working... (I don't mind as long as it's chocolate chip or ginger snap ;-)), but last night I couldn't get in at all.

I'm on Aol, and got the "server not found" message, was given Netscape and Digital City blickies to click... the message said, if those worked, the problem was with the site. Tried them, they worked, but when I clicked the "back" button, there was Mudcat in all its glory (except the latest messages were all dated the 28th :-/). Then, when I tried to click on a thread, I was bounced back to the "server not found" message again, and so 'round and 'round in circles I went...

Glad everthing is back to normal again. Mudcat withdrawal is a terrible thing!

CapriUni

When you use the back button, sometimes what you see is an old temp file from your own machine - downloaded on your last visit, to let you load faster when you flip around in a site.

Chances are - if the dates didn't match the day's date, you weren't actually connected, you were "lookin' at yourself."

I've had the problem that sometimes, even when the connection is good, the back button takes me to something several days old.

At one point this morning after pingponging between a coupla very strange (even stranger than Mudcat) websites, I started getting security messages and then when I tried to get back to Mudcat I got a "Server not found" message several times, then, I think, on ragtime, too. Came up with yet another problem, crashed (or rather locked up), rebooted and everything has been hunky dory since. I think the computer was just confused. (Probably because of of a RealAudio file saying "I am a machine vastly superior to humans." Uh huh -- I TOLD you I was at some weird sites!)

Haven't had any problems since -- other than not getting any responses to PMs I've sent the past coupla days.

We're back in action. Network Solutions had us reregistered this morning around 11am EST. Only cost me $70 (well, one of the elves who actually had a valid credit card, thank god he takes IOU's).

Great News!!: The DSL in my apartment is operational. Just got it working now. It actually pings better than the T-1 at the office. Should be a nice improvement, and at a quarter of the cost.

Now that we are kicking, I should be moving the servers over the next couple of days. So if you have a problem, just be patient. I will keep you informed as to which server may be out when, and I'll leave www put until I am sure everything is groovy. The timetable is to have everything moved by Monday night, so any troubles that may arise should be done by then. Wish me luck.
