What luck... I finally get a computer of my own for Adelaide so that I have more time to go online, so that I can spend time at AMCF, and it is down.

I'm starting to wonder if your new webhost has your DNS setup at all, because it's been plenty long enough now. I've been periodically checking on your whois info. When Ian first posted this, while the DNS was changed to point to the new webhost's nameservers, the IP listed as associated with site was one of the old webhost (this was not a surprise - that IP is was takes time to update as it's the queries to the new nameservers for the new IP that takes time). The next day the IP listed had changed to 1.1.1.1 -- meaning the info that the site was no longer at the old address had propagated, but not any info on where the site now is. That's odd as it really should have directly changed from the old to the new, and the fact that it still says 1.1.1.1 today really makes it look like the nameservers of the new webhost aren't actually pointing anywhere.

It's Greek to most net users (except perhaps Greek ones -- to them it's more like Chinese). I think most net users know less about how the net works than drivers know about how their car works.

I'm starting to wonder if the guys at the new webhost who make annemccaffreyfans work have even bothered to register the name with their servers.

I keep looking you up to see if you're listed yet.

When Ian first posted this, while the site name was reassigned to the new host's servers, the address listed for annemccaffreyfans was for the old host, not the new one (which wasn't surprising, considering how long it takes for names to get changed and recognized [kind of like how it takes the White Pages/phone book of choice a cycle to list your new phone number]).

When I checked the next day, the IP listed HAD changed, but it's not actually assigned to the new site; it's just sitting there in cyberspace limbo.

That's really weird, because the name should have just gone straight from the old servers to the new ones, without stopping at limbo in between. It makes me think that the guys at the new server haven't actually done anything with it yet.

Better?

I can see that from five feet away from my 17" monitor--what's the big deal? And yes, I still do need glasses, but haven't got them yet

btw, is it up yet? is it up yet? is it up yet?



In case it is, I was having problems with getting out of our firewall, and was needing to confirm the connectivity problems were fixed before trying AMCF by looking at the pages here & PF

I will report my results when I look now....


still no joy.....

Nonsense. I know lots and lots about the intarwebs. You type on the keys, and the letters pop up on the TV screen that's plugged into that there metal box. No problem.
