    No lounge access?

    Was there a major outage in New Jersey or was I the only one who couldn't get into the Lounge today?
    After about two hours of trying from about 11:45am EDT to about 15 minutes ago, it was no go.

    Finally now Ok?

    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!

    Re: No lounge access?

    Possibly a problem with your DNS server.

    Yes, that's the way it looks. They won't admit anything tho. <img src=/S/brainwash.gif border=0 alt=brainwash width=15 height=15>

    Re: No lounge access?

    I had the same problem with one of the other Forum websites I frequent...worked great many times during the day, then, all of a sudden, got the 'can't find server' page. Ended up chatting w/tech support (Adelphia Powerlink) and after some tests on their end...admitted that it was their DNS server problem. I would try again 1 hr later and all was 100% perfect. This scenerio happens at least 1x a week.. this last time, the level2 tech said I had my browser hijacked!. (as in a re-director-type hijacker)..yeah, right...not this machine...tighter than Fort Knox <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>...just think this tech didn't know what he was talking about...anyway, after I rebooted and went to other sites, I tried access to said site...all was ok again! Still think it is the ISP's DNS server!...but what do I know...I am just a self-taught pc user! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Re: No lounge access?

    I am getting very occasional problems in IE6 at home where the signon-screen (the second displayed) of my online bank, and sometimes other random sites (including the Lounge) come up with a 404 error.

    As always the solution is a reboot, and, magically, all is well again...

    With something as complex and horrible as Internet Explorer, it would be virtually impossible to determine why the problem occurs, but there must be something DNS-sy in it...

    Re: No lounge access?

    Yup...they don't/won't admit to DNS problems on their end...and I won't switch to another browser...IE user til it dies! <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
