Was just wondering if any others noticed a very long server unavailability to the board today, between about 3pm PST to 8 or so PST? Both from work and home, I just got no where. Server would not respond at all. Any one else?

Yes, it was down a bit yesterday.



<geek on>



Since I am familiar with it, I did a DNS search as the lookup was timing out. Couldn't resolve the domain name to a specific I.P. address. Wonder if the host's DNS servers were down and not updating the top level domain server's DNS records. The A Record IP address for the site for the virtual web server is the one of the 2 DNS servers of record for the domain. That's my diagnosis.



Since I didn't have the IP address for the servers the website resides on, I couldn't use that to see if the website or server was down as well.



Now however I do.

Or, in other words, cx500forums.com in the Internet "phone book" couldn't be found. So it couldn't send us where we needed to go. Got tired trying to think were it was. Gave up. Now it is able to look it up again. And it tells us where to go. HTH.









Didn't pursue that much further as we were celebrating the daughter's 20th birthday last night and she will be back at college on her real birth date.

I ended up burning up some time on the Australian and UK forum. But I would have preferred to spend it here.
