Darn, not again? - [4:23 PM]

Well it seems like my DNS problems continue. Yesterday I could view this page as expected, today it's not working.

Movie line of the week answer - [4:17 PM]

Young Sherlock Holmes Movie PosterYep, I've been silent today. Seems like Blogger was having some trouble, I couldn't get logged in. Anywho, yesterday's winner is once again, you guessed it, Mr. Moose! Congratulations Moose... I still wish I knew who you were!

The correct answer is...

See you knew the answer all along, didn't you? Just an FYI, if you're interested, Young Sherlock Holmes will be released on DVD sometime in December of this year. It's one that go right into my collection of favorites.

OPML and browsers - [3:13 PM]

John Robb (a.k.a. JRobb): "To make this really zoooom a browser that could read OPML with all the bells and wistles provided by a desktop O/S is needed." - I'd be very interested to see what you mean by that John. Have you written about that in the past? Are you talking about simple display or something complex? Could what you're thinking be done with XSLT?

DaveNet: Tips for Candidates re Weblogs. - (For those that can actually see this site. Smile, life is good!) I haven't really paid much attention to the California Governor's race, do any of the candidates have a blog?

Can you see this site? - [9:34 AM]

DNS issues continue. Today I can see the root of our site, CrabApples.NET, but the sub-domain is totally busted and reporting the OLD IP address.

When will things become right, this has been dragging on for two weeks now. I'm getting email from folks asking why my site is down. It's not down, not really, the box is humming away in a server room. Serving up all domains but mine. Sigh.

Good grief Charlie Brown - [11:26 AM]

CNet "New Office locks down documents" - WOW! There are a lot of good things to talk about in the new Office but folks tend to lean on the bad stuff. I think it makes for better press. Take the headline for instance 'New Office locks down documents', yep sounds scary but it'll get me to read the article. I want to make sure they're not saying stuff that isn't true. Yes you can lock down your documents, if you want to. Large corporations with sensitive documents will love this feature, others won't. Here's a word of advice, if you don't want your documents locked down, don't use the feature. Yes, it's that easy.

I do need to calm down... - [11:10 AM]

Ok, so maybe, just maybe, the problem isn't Network Solutions. To be completely honest I don't have the slightest clue what's going on. I've changed my account information again in an attempt to 'make it work'. We'll see what happens. In the meantime I'm hearing from some that things are as expected, they can see my site and get posts just fine. Weird. Maybe SBC and MSN are the problems, I use SBC here at the office and MSN at home. Does anyone know how DNS updates really work? Why is it that sites on this box that are registered with Network Solutions still don't work for everyone, while others do?

What you're seeing in earlier posts is frustration, plain and simple. Hopefully I'll get this resolved soon.

Network Solutions sucks - [9:28 AM]

I have two domains registered with Network Solutions and you won't be able to see either of them. Last week I changed the DNS server addresses and they WERE NEVER PROPAGATED! In fact they're still using the OLD IP's in my account information. Come on guys, how hard can this possibly be? I put in an address and you save it somewhere, doesn't sound that difficult to me.

I made my changes, your service told me it was made and that it may take 72 hours to show up, I log back into my account on Sunday evening and the IP's are still the same. It's really too darned bad one of my domains is registered for 10 years, otherwise I'd move it. One thing is FOR CERTAIN, I will be moving the account that expires in 2004. Quit trying to sell me more services and make what you have work, ok? Right now it's pathetic.

I guess the good thing is nobody is going to be able to see this entry for up to 72 hours, if it even worked this time.

Someone please explain how a SIMPLE DNS server name change can SCREW up your site for two @#&%$* weeks?

I'm beyond pissed right now.
