    I apologize for the wait. I was sleeping the hours this thing went down and was not aware of this. Not that I would have brought it back up but I would have notified people in email--as I started doing to a few of you and then dumped it when it was apparent the forum was back up.


    There should be a big difference on this box. We are all alone in it and we can trash it anyway we want. ;)

    Anyway, apologies for the down time again.

    I still need to do a few things on my end when I get the green light from the host (which I still haven't)...

    SO if this gets stuck again, you know what's up.

    Man, what a cluster#@*#

    Either I am the unluckiest guy out there with this stuff or... I don't know.

    Hello Leon,
    I apologize for all the delays. There was a hardware failure in the
    machine I moved your site to. I have already installed a new
    motherboard and the server is back up.

    I had to change your IP also to 66.227.67.73. Again I apologize for the delay.

    Regards,
    Les



    So until we are re-routed to the DNS with the new IP, I am probably the only one that's gonna be here for a little while. :(

    6 Hours of this.

    Looks like the West Coast routers are recognizing the new IP. :) The east is still hosed.

    That's because I emailed you the IP.

    See, every website has an IP address, like 66.227.67.73. When you type in globalaffairs.org the DNS "re-routes" the name to the IP underneath. The whole internet is on the TCP/IP address convention.

    When the host switched the IP on us, globalaffairs.org had no place to turn but the old IP that doesn't work. I am not sure what hosts do in order to send out information for the new IP to take hold but I am sure there are techies here willing to explain more. :)

    Looks like FL is still not recognizing, while TX is.
