couldn't get into Mudcat as normal, or via loki/dharma/ragtime, or via Google, for over 36 hours - was having withdrawal symptoms!!
But remember 'Catters, what Time of the Year this is : Hallowe'en!!! - when those spirits that wish to make mischief upon the earthplane, can and do!!! Cheers, R-J.

I just had two days of not being able to access Mudcat through any addresses I had for Mucat or parts thereof, whether via bookmarks or typing them in or going by way of a keyword search that generated web addresses for various parts of Mudcat. I'm using Netscape.


Then today it suddenly worked again. I don't know what happened.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Still having problems. I used the "DigiTrad and Forum Search," and the "SuperSearch Results" page came up just fine, but when I click on any links, I get the familiar page, "Can't Find Web Site. Did you click on a link? The site may no longer exist or it may have moved …"

But this was temporary. A little while later, I clicked on the same link and it worked.

I just now got in, I haven't been able to get in at all to any of the 4 servers (www, dharma, loki, ragtime) since, I think, yesterday afternoon, despite trying every few hours. Today, it worked although I didn't do anything different from normal.

I use CompuServe, and I kept getting the message "site not found ... are you sure you spelled the name correctly? etc."

My cookie seems OK.

Jeri was a lot of help when I couldn't get regular access. Maybe I'll re-check now and see if the system is working again. I'm working with a MAC up the Kennebec River in Maine if that is significant. I'll have to apologize to my wife whom I've accused of sabotaging my access to Mudcat.

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.

I can't figure out why I can still get in with my cookie, except that my ISP hasn't updated the DNS info. (I'm not complaining.) It would explain why Bat Goddess and Curmudgeon are also cookied, because we use the same ISP.

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!!!

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.
