    what happened to askwoody.com

    Hi all --
    One place I rely on for safe computing advice is askwoody.com, which is at least historically related
    to Woody's Lounge, obviously. For example, I listen there for Woody's opinion re: when to get the MS
    update. It's now been two days or so (three?) since that site has been "alive", so to speak.
    I keep not being able to reach it. Does anyone know what has happened?

    The last entry I can see on the (Google cached copy of the) site is 28 October 2005. The server responds OK, but it seems the http ain't working.

    Since I just recently had the same inability to reach the site, I just tried again and it seems to be online. There are a number of posts there for November and none mentions any downtime. In any case, "he's" still out there...

    And me too! Thanks to Alan and BigAl for the responses!! It's back up indeed,
    as of the last few hours.
    The most recent AskWoody posting is Nov 10.

    PS I was hoping for the all-clear on the Picture File Viewer Buffer Overflow patch. Woody mentioned
    that the MS track record on GDI patches has been rather unmentionable (224 days to patch one
    of the holes). --y

    It's very easy to get there - there's a link at the bottom of every Lounge page - see screenshot.
