Hi guys,

Pab here, not some spamming c@ckmonger. As some of you know, I do websites, and I'm having a little problem with a wee site of mine.

The deal is that the domain name is new, and hosted in Spain. Unfortunately the client, Alan, is telling all his mates to go see it and some of them cant get there, it just doesnt come up.

Now this phenomena is to do with a thing called propagation, which is when all the servers of the world are informed that the domain name exists, so people can go there ... Not search engines mind, this is about your local ISP ... every single one of'em ...

So what I would like you all to do, it wont take a mo' ... is just click on this URL: THE URL ... and tell me if you see it.

PLEASE NOTE: this is not a ploy to get people to clock up visits, or buy anything, or tell me if they like/hate the site (though opinions are welcome, I'm sure) ... It does not do me or Alan any good to be visited by 50 people who have no interest in his product. I just need to know if people can see it ...

I dont normally ask for favours like this, but this time I'm flummoxed, and Al deserves a wee hand ... cos all you have to do is click and wait for 10 seconds, then vote on the poll ...

Thanks for helping me out .... smile.gif

Pab

It took ages to get to it... the address was resolved okay and it went off looking for summat... but came back with the old "resource not found" page.

So no, I can't see it at all. sad.gif

Edit: Since Fuzzla mentioned it, I'm on UK/ADSL (BT). But it could be the huge torrnet I'm downloading that could be the cause of the delay. Oopsie!! sleep.gif

Thanks for your support, lads ... this is a great help .... and remember, people, I need as many witnesses i can get, so if all 900 members could just spontaneously come on line, read my poll, visit the site and tell me about it ... erm ... no perhaps not ... Mata would start having bandwidth problems ... but still, all help is gleefully appreciated ....

Thanks again ... keep'em coming ...

Looks fine for me here, big fella. Loaded almost instantaneously.

I'm sitting in the office in Ohio, in the grand old US of A. So there's a stupidly fat pipe connecting me to the interweb.

It worked fine for me. In fact, it was my vote that it worked fine that took forever to load.... how ironic.

Okay people, thats lovely, just lovely ... I'm very impressed and thank you all from the heart of my ... I mean the bottom of my heart ... It is clear that the site is readily available to anybody who's name isn't leo, which is just going to have to be a minor handicap that the site shall have to live with ....


The other conclusion is that London has many things, but is a bit of a mess as far as Domain Name Servers go, and that if we want a truly fluid internet experience, we all need to move to Ohio. blink.gif

So be it.

Thanks again peeps ... I hope I can return the favour somehow ...

Cheers,

Pab wub.gif

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Okay, Pixiegoth, you didnt post that last one, there is no problem with accessing the site, and the fact that I cant get there either now is another figment of our collective imagination. I recommend a strong cup of tea....

But seriously folks, I'll just assume that its a bad day in Logroņo where the site is hosted, and indeed the internet is being particularly obtuse today ... This problem shall disappear, just like the weapons of mass destruction, and we no longer need to worry about it ever again.

Cursed iternet ... it really keeps you on your toes sometimes ...

Thanks again!
