Default NOTICE: New Web Server

Server migration in process! We recently had a hard drive malfunction, fortunately corrected by the RAID system. This and the need to expand some hard drive partitions has prompted the need for a new server. Please excuse any delays in admitting new users or fulfilling subscription updates in the meantime.

Hopefully, it's alive and well.

Those still getting the old server will need to refresh DNS.

My friend gets the DNS message but we have no clue how to fix this or what is going on. Please we need some help. Everything is fine on my system but he is on Windows 8. He is jamesk815.

Thanks

Thanks Harry! The money for the upgrade is certainly an issue, but thank you for enduring the mental anguish and aggravation during this process!

Don't worry about the money. This is a replacement for our old worn out server, which will be retired in a couple of weeks.

Worry about my tired old brain dealing with multiple simultaneous things such as DNS, domains, support tickets, configurations, email flow, etc.

Bob Alt,

I use an I-Pad often, and had to go to "settings", "Safari", (my browser), and delete history to get it to work. A Kindle may have a similar feature for deleting browser history.

Hi again

Here is what is happening. Jamesk815 can get into engineads, and his profile. He entered the dns flush and it worked giving the message that it worked. He still gets the board message saying enter dns flush and cannot get any further like the discussion page. Do we just keep waiting for his server company to update?

Thanks

Bob
