    askwoody.com broken again?

    Is is just me (in the UK) but today www.askwoody.com returns:

    ERROR
    The requested URL could not be retrieved

    The following error was encountered:

    * Invalid Request: DNS lookup failed

    Some aspect of the HTTP Request is invalid.

    Ken,
    It looks that way?
    I got a DNS error, link could not be found, etc.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    No, it's not just you! There seems to be some major(?) problem with the DNS server - we'll let you know as soon as we hear anything.

    I have found that there have been many sites that I visit are either down or very slow. Some even make "The Lounge" look FAST!

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    There was a hardware failure (a hard disk crashed).
    The site is back up again, but it isn't functional yet. Please be patient a while longer.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Not quite yet, I think. At 1230pm Mountain Time, I get:
    Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) in /home2/woody/public_html/includes/config.php on line 8

    That was probably a temporary glitch, it seems to be OK at the moment (19:35 UTC), even if a bit slow.

    I'm glad to see it back. For future reference, should I post here when I see it down? I knew it was down yesterday morning when I came into work at 8 a.m. Pacific time because it loads as one of my startup tabs.

    Yes, this is a good place to report such problems, since Woody's Lounge and AskWoody are associated.
