    Grateful thanks to Mike and everyone else who made this happen. Lounge speed is much better. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23> <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>

    Welcome back!

    We're baaaaack!

    Mike Wolfman has worked his a$$ off to get the Lounge up and running on the new server, and here we are again! Enjoy our new fast server!

    Note: our home page wopr.com is now AskWoody instead of the old WOPR page.

    I could get used to this very quickly.

    I just had a quick look at the old lounge, to see if I had missed any posts, and I couldn't believe how S L O O W it was.

    Re: Welcome back!

    To Mike, Claude <img src=/S/claude.gif border=0 alt=claude width=21 height=21> and everyone else involved with the move.... GREAT JOB!!! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16> <img src=/S/eileen.gif border=0 alt=eileen width=17 height=15> would be proud!

    As others have said... the speed is a welcome improvement.

    Cheers, Bob

    P.S. The only way I was able to get to the new site was to modify the HOSTS file as you suggested. Previously, my HOSTS files did not have a reference to www.wopr.com.
    Regards,
    Bob

    Re: Welcome back!

    You'll be able to remove the entries from your Hosts file in a day or two. I can already get in without them, but it depends on how often your DNS server is updated.

    Re: Welcome back!

    Hi Bob,

    I think you're using the same ISP that I use, and if I recall correctly, the DNS cache is pretty slow to refresh with them.

    I've been using OpenDNS for over a year now (maybe 2??), and it's been really quick to refresh the DNS entries.

    There's other benefits to using this service, but too many to list here. Take a look if you're interested.
