Is anyone else having trouble getting to Tuckerspawn from the links on Ellen's page or BC? I'm wondering if I'm the only one that the link seems broken for?

Well, it's a week late, but it's fine now.

I'd assume it was residual from Erin's Hardware Hilarity, and I'd also assume it's cleared up now.

I hate to say it but if I didn't have this site pinned to my new tabs page I couldn't get here still. When I click on the link at either your site or at BC I get sent to the BC entry page as if I was searching them from the net and didn't have their site bookmarked.

http://tuckerspawn.fictioneer.org/
from my site goes exactly to the right place. I just tested it in Firefox 20.0, Elinks, Links2, Lynx, and Midori. I don't remember installing Midori...

Lookup (via Firefox):
Network information (204.45.253.66)
Reverse DNS (PTR record) Magda.QnEZ.Net
DNS server (NS record) ns4.fdcservers.net (66.90.66.138)
ns3.fdcservers.net (66.90.66.137)
ASN number 30058
ASN name (ISP) FDCSERVERS - FDCservers.net
IP-range/subnet 204.45.224.0/19
204.45.224.0 - 204.45.255.255

Trying the numeric IP gets a very simple page saying "Apache is functioning normally", which I do not find sufficiently informative.

Hrm. Perhaps someone is caching DNS 'for you' (this sort of 'help' is why I despise Windows; it'll help you right into a wall face-first) and it's an old result. Or perhaps you are caching DNS?

IF not, I'd suggest:
try the numeric, to see if you get the same thing I did
empty browser cache & try
If you know how, find a new open/public DNS server and use them instead. Google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, or OpenDNS 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 ...
quit browser, restart, & try
if running Windows, reboot & try
try different browser - now's a good time to download Opera.

Well the link is now working for me from FF but not from IE 10 (I think that is the latest version) which means that IE must be caching it some how...

Close the browser(s), open command-line, ipconfig /flushdns


Don't call me Shirley. You will surely make me surly.
