Parent Site Down

Hmm. It would appear that my host is down. The forum is hosted off-site by InvisionFree (it's free lol) but the images are hosted on the www. which down. The result is, you can post here but it might be slow waiting for the images.



Sorry! I'll try to figure out what's up, but, guess what? My main hosting is free too so there's not exactly any support contract <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo-->



Normal service may be restored at any time. Or maybe not until I figure out a new host to freeload off <!--emo&:P--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tongue.gif' /><!--endemo-->



:update: > members area says there's a DDOS on one of their IPs. It's not the one I use, but maybe it's had consequences...

OK I found the problem. The hosts changed the IP address from 64.191.3.101 to 66.197.150.114 <!--emo&<_<--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/dry.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='dry.gif' /><!--endemo-->



It'll be fixed when the DNS propagates <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' /><!--endemo-->

You can also point your domain ("A" DNS record) to IP 64.191.32.16

And this time my DNS was down. Apologies to anyone who had difficulty accessing the sites today, but we were a victim of a DDOS attack!



You can read about it on mein host's Facebook:

Seems OK here now too. Pings are quite high, but it was the DNS that was being attacked so the name wouldn't resolve. If the site is slow to load, that's my free hosting <!--emo&:lol:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/laugh.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='laugh.gif' /><!--endemo--> <!--emo&:shame:--><img src='http://i2.ifrm.com/4013/140/emo/shame.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='shame.gif' /><!--endemo-->
