View Full Version : Problems not over?

We've apparently lost some of the posts that were posted right before The Great Message Board Crash. (If the prose is deathless, how can it be gone?)

Who cares - I'm so glad the board is back, I could hug Lib. (Addicted? Who, me??? ;))
Gaudere - any inside scoop about what happened?

It's getting there, but not totally there yet.
And things will be better once we get reopened again. Sorry for the delay.

You know... it would have been nice if clicking on "News" from the home page could have given us an update on the progress... nothing long, just a terse prognosis...
Anyone else notice that the address has changed? Instead of www.straightdope.com (http://www.straightdope.com) , there are numbers up there, 18.104.22.168 . Is that what we have to type from now on if we want to link to another thread?
I also just scrolled down to Topic Review and noticed it now has alternating white-and-grey backgrounds just like the thread itself.

It's interesting, because www.straightdope.com (http://www.straightdope.com) resolves to 22.214.171.124, not 126.96.36.199. Don't know if they're two different machines, or one machine with two IP interfaces. I suspect the former, because the server at 88 seems to be redirecting to 199. There's no IN-ADDR reverse lookup for either host, according to both CEREBUS and KITTEN, the cognizant nameservers.
So -- beats me.

I'm sure Bricker could actually give you a legal explanation of this phenomenon. . .after a small amount of thought (?). . .and probably would be able to even after death.
