Hi. I see this too. There aren't any other threads showing up but this one and one in the BS section. I can't reset my cookie when I know my password is correct.

In the dropdown menu (middle of home page) set the Age to 14 days and you'll see enough to work with.

Or seven days if 14 seems overly ambitious.

This is the first time I've been able to get in for several days. The paucity of postings indicates that others have had the same trouble.

What is going wrong?

Even more important: what can we do to help? Does Max need money? Technical support? Moral support?

Anyone feel free to email me at Richard (at) if you can't get in here (or even if you can in case I can't). Brexit is likely to deprive me of my domain, so I am fortunate to have been able to get as well.

Hmm! Just realised that I ought to have used a spare address, lest the above one, which I've just notified all my contacts of, gets spammed. Oh well, I can kill it if necessary and tell all my contacts another new one.

why would the .eu TLD be dis-allowed?
Was there a criterion at set-up?
They are there to make money and as long as they get that ..........
Maybe new owners would be subject to rules

I well remember looking at a .by (Belarus) which put a too high price on foreign ownership. Years ago.

.eu and Brexit.

You probably just just need an address in the EU to renew it. It will be trickier if renewal payments cannot be drawn from a UK bank.

The last I heard, some time ago, was that no individual or organisation based in the UK would be allowed to have a .eu domain after Brexit. Some workarounds were postulated but didn't seem practicable. So I bagged when the chap who handles my domain registration told me it was available, but then waited until we found out whether Brexit would be happening before starting to tell people.

(Probably) losing my .eu domain will be one of the lesser consequences of Brexit, but we don't need to discuss that here.

You weren't the only one wondering what was wrong.

The problem was in the good old U S of A,
and the company that provides internet service
to the Mudcat Forum.
This company is known to me --
even though I don't have television or cable hooked up, by choice --
as a provider of cable television,
and of residential internet service through the cable networks.

The wrestling match went on for several days.
Only after the Mudcat came back, finally,
did I have a clue what was happening,
by reading what

Not sure about audit trail, but I pay via credit card and would have thought that was common. There would be exchange rates.

Given there are many people providing many things on the web, I would bet there are convenience addresses for these things. There must be hundreds of peeps in the same situation. Some willing to pay "effectively twice", just as the OPer has decided with the .uk TLD.
If there is profit, services are usually to be found.

Is the same kind of rule applicable to .uk for foreigners?

The effective problem with changing domain names is broken links. You can trawl for any on websites, there are websites that do it for you. Getting webmeisters to update may be a problem. But all those surfers who have put you on their favourites are potential broken links, worth thinking about! Worth money to commercial sites, hence suggestions above.

Well lookye here

The only details required to meet this restriction is a valid European Union address.
If no European Union address can be provided then our agency service can be used and the domain will be registered on your behalf.

Best of luck.

times up for the UK & the US IMNSHO.

There was a cartoon by Matt in the Daily Telegrope which basically says

"A good guide to what happens next, is to ask yourself how this could get any worse"

Also in the year's collection, printed pre-Xmas, there is one with two bus drivers talking:

"Boris makes model buses. My hobby is making detailed, carefully thought out, Brexit plans."

Happy Knew (sic) Year, y'all.

Reality, what a concept. IF an objective fact has 752 exceptions, is it still a fact ? <-intentional ?

Subject: RE: Yo
From: Mr Red

The answer is most certainly YES, if the 752 exceptions are clearly listed every time someone quotes the fact.

Humans are not capable of combining 752 caveats in one breath.
Engineers, by training, can hold maybe a few. They have to, a "thing" doesn't "thingy" if you ignore, usually, one wayward "doovery". But after that we employ computers and AI (which can't tell us why it thinks something is so).

That is a very heavy footnote way to go to establish a fact.

I recall going to Times Square for New Years eve on a break from the NYT. It had different acoustic amateur bands and music groups every 30 feet or so. Now it is full of guns and a dozeb differnt special forces.
I went to Thurdgood Marshall Airport (now BWI) and saw assault rifles on display for the first time. I gave a ride to a synagoge and saw armed police on display. I frequent gas stations, malls, grocery stores and art stores, each are former sites of shootings or mass killings.

These are factual observations but it is editorial to say that I am witnessing a breakdown of American civilization.
Fact or not, it is happening with each and every shooting no matter how vigilent a police response may be.

People seem to hate thier neighbor

A war of armed cultural hate is underway, fact or not, attested by the bodies that are removed quickly and forgotten.

Sometimes I think the internet taught social media people too much about each other and extended flame wars into real life.

Or are culture wars eternal?

This got decidedly funny.

An infinity of exceptions proves a claim is not an objective fact.
When some Einstien equations turn into repeating infinities, (at singularities) mathmaticians dismiss them as garbage but I still am not sure the math is wrong.
