Did anybody have difficulties accessing the site for a while this morning?

Recommended Posts

Was the site down for a few hours this morning?

 

Or it could just have been local to me due to eircom's DNS servers getting dizzy for a while.

The site was indeed down for a period this morning but Boskonay sorted it all out. All back To normal now!

I never noticed anything - and, if any changes are happening, is there any chance of something better than 'normality'...? :D

It was?

 

It was off from this end from about 07:30 until sometime after 12:00, but as I said it could have been a local name server issue on parts of the eircom network, so other members may have had full access.

I tried logging on about 15 minutes ago (13:15) and the site was down. But, everything seems fine now :tumbsup:

It was?Looks like an Eircom issue - the server and site have been up throughout, and relatively normal traffic levels...

I had trouble logging in on the phone using 3G this morning... O2 network.

Yes it seems an eircom issue. I can't access it for the past while using eircom, but fine using a hotspot off vodafone.

Strange thing though is on the eircom connection all other web sites were working fine when IRM was timing out.

There's a worldwide problem with DNS so some sites are timing out. Fixed now I'm told but servers worldwide are catching up.

Having smugly said that I'd had no problem at all, it vanished for me at 2200 hours last night, and was still gone at midnight - back now, obviously.

It was definitely not a local problem yesterday. Had to email BK to let him know. Working well today though

I get that a lot and have to relog in.

 

Only on my iPhone when it's using the mobile template. There is a problem with cookie retention. It never remembers I've logged in, but fine on Mac or iPad.

As far as I'm concerned it's not fussy, as it dos'nt like either my Ipad or my PC, & not at the same time :(( Another point is this text box is nearly bigger than the whole tread,

I'm using a desktop PC with Chrome via Vista and I have no real problems on this site, if that is of any interest to the techy boys.

Interesting... in theory the site will only 'forget' you if you change IP address.... perhaps some of you are on mobile operators or ISP's that change IP's about a little too often...

 

I've 'move to vBulletin 5 suite' on my todo for a while now, will try to set aside some time and sheckels to make it happen

I think in VB the 'remember me' module can be configured to use IP+Cookies or just Cookies. The later makes more sense for mobile internet. Other catches are subdomain names and the cookie store (e.g. mobile.domain.com v http://www.domain.com v domain.com all different cookies)
