Re: [Freelance Traveller] July issue ready for download!

Huh. I'm on Evil Corp, uh Comcast, maybe it's their big move to crush all other ISP's and see them driven before them. Maybe something weird is going on with the internet? I am not having issues with my site, and it's hosted in Los Angeles afaik. edit: Just used google to search for freelance trave...

Re: [Freelance Traveller] July issue ready for download!

Works fine for me, could it be a UK problem? That's what I suspected - a spoofed DNS somewhere key in the UK - and the Commissioner of Information doesn't prosecute it, either, according to Wikipedia - but I'm not sure that it's ONLY the UK that's affected (I wasn't sure that Shonner is in the UK; ...

[quote="AndrewW"]My own DNS server can't find it either... nslookup freelancetraveller.com Server: 192.168.1.1 Address: 192.168.1.1#53 That's your own ISP's DNS being hidden from you.

Re: [Freelance Traveller] July issue ready for download!

Your site is either 92.242.140.2 or it isn't. If it's intermittent, the fault is in the hard/soft config at the site location. Hopefully other customers that have their stuff hosted there are screaming to get the network back on the Internet. I did a look at that IP address. It has a history of bei...

Re: [Freelance Traveller] July issue ready for download!

Ok. It's just a router issue then with your hosting site's IT guys. Those things happen with small-ish cloud firms. Hopefully they'll figure out what configuration it needs to at least have HTTP and FTP working again. I can see a DNS block happening if a cloud cluster was virus driven. But such iss...

Re: [Freelance Traveller] July issue ready for download!

So why does all this only affect your site though? Check that your bandwidth and hosting fees are being paid. It doesn't affect only my site, and I pay in advance for an entire year, with no bandwidth limits. If Google were more forthcoming about how to fix the problem, it'd be fixed; I've been goi...

Recent Sporadic Failure to Resolve Freelance Traveller

Since April, we've been seeing sporadic reports of people not able to resolve our site (and email bouncing). The only reason we can find that this might be happening is that Google (and Google Public DNS) has made a change in the way they handle resolving domains - first, they have implemented a DNS...

The APL thing warms my geeky heart. I'm not an APL fan myself, but I've written enough FORTH and Haskell traveller utilities to root for another underdog. ;) Ooo, FORTH! Another language to play with that you can still find. And another candidate for domain-specific languages. /me finds it somewhat...

Yey for APL. What, you don't like Egyptian hieroglyphics as a write-only programming language? :) It seems appropriate to use a computer language that was used when Traveller was just a baby. And COBOL and FORTRAN listings would fill up the newsletter. Ha! COBOL certainly would, because of the DOCU...
