Just wondering if anyone else experience a blackout for our site. Over the years I've used Verizon DSL, I've noticed that certain sites can't be accessed for no apparent reason.

Just wondering if anyone else had this problem.

Tony or Scott might be able to explain what happens when certain areas of the country are blacked-out. I used to blame my server, even when they explained it was a problem with Verizon. Apparently the site remained up, since some people were able to log on and view the site.

I was able to ftp to the server, which means that even though I could not see the site with my browser, it was somewhere "out there". Does anyone know what really is happening?

If you could FTP to the site where your files for the website and forum where but not browse, then the machine which is utilized as a webserver was not working. there may have been a DNS problem. not sure.

Ted emailed me this afternoon and said the site was down for about an hour.

No one can ping the site, even when it's up (I've installed a firewall that disables pinging for security reasons).

'ping' is a tool on your computer. It can be used to see if a server is working. The ping program will send a request to the server, and (usually) the server sends a reply. You can see for yourself:

If you have windows 98/95/ME, press the start button and click 'run.' A box should pop up. Inside the box, type "command" and press <ENTER>. A mostly-black window should pop up. Type "ping google.com" and press <ENTER>.

If you have windows nt/2k/xp, do the same as above, except type "cmd" into the run box instead of "command"
