DNS Issues

Just in case anyone noticed and was wondering, there have been a few issues with the DNS of the site ( this week which may have resulted in site requests timing out. Nothing to do with the site, the load balancing, or the recent code changes by Nephele. Although I noticed it myself a few times the traffic logs show no noticable drop in traffic or bandwidth so it likely affected only a small number of users over a few short periods of time. -- Daveh 15:40, 3 April 2009 (EDT)

I've been noticing it and was wondering what was going on. At one point, the outage lasted for about an hour; other times, it seems to have been for just a few minutes. Thanks for the info. --NepheleTalk 15:49, 3 April 2009 (EDT)
I'm glad it's not just me. I just had to put a hosts entry in to even reach the site. For windows users who need a workaround, add the line "" to your hosts file, which will be located in your Windows\System32\drivers\etc directory. Remove it again once this is over in case the IP changes. –RpehTCE 16:47, 3 April 2009 (EDT)
Nod...the problem is just the site name ( and all subdomains) don't resolve to their appropriate IPs. Reaching the site directly by IP works fine. At one point was fine but all other subdomains weren't resolving. -- Daveh 17:22, 3 April 2009 (EDT)
