Current Site problems...
 
If you can read this, then all is well, if you can not... then this will be difficult to explain :p. Regardless, we've been having issues with the name-server, so quite a few people can not access the site for some reason, including members of staff. It is currently being looked into.

Most problems have now been fixed. However, in the upcoming days we'll be moving servers and hosts, so there will likely be further 'teething' problems. Please bear with us during this post-apocalyptic turmoil.

Also, it's all Rob's fault.

We are currently in the process of transferring to the new server and there is likely to be some downtime. The main site should be fine, but the forums may be down for an extended time. Please bear with us as we attempt world peace...

And we're back. Hello everyone!

We successfully escaped the zombie apocalypse with plenty of fuel spare for the chainsaws. Rob only got bit 3 or 4 times, but I think he'll get over it.

We should be 100% at this point. I for some reason still can't access the site regularly (I am using a proxy), but I suspect everything will settle down very soon. If anyone happens to notice anything out of the ordinary, including performance issues, please let us know.

Returning from banishment ... thank you very much ROB!! LOL

I have been missing all of the excitement since Rob had a hissy with his ISP. Just this eve I was not even able to find the site! Glad I have Rob's email. Creating argument in the past was good for something!

Rob Williams 09-04-2012 10:59 PM

Haha. My ISP is not at fault for you not being able to connect. The old server was in Chicago, while the new one is in Indianapolis. My ISP just happens to be a bitch when it comes to DNS, I guess (and yours too). Our traffic hasn't really bumped at all, so it seems we were in the extreme minority.

Everything is found! Had to keep with the IP addresses thru this AM

A few of us switched DNS server for faster updates. Go into your router and set primary DNS as 8.8.8.8 - that's Google Open DNS. It's very fast, solved nearly all my slow DNS problems. My ISP was dreadful about updates - not quite days, but often hours.

Rob Williams 09-05-2012 05:11 PM

If I could be stuffed to, I'd see if it's updated for my ISP also. But Google's DNS has been serving me well so think I'll just stick with it.
