Default Not getting MLU notifications?

Hi Folks,

I haven't been getting email notifications for PM's or emails from MLU when I should be ... I just sent myself a test email and a test PM through my profile and didn't receive the email notifications. Anyone else having this problem too, or is it just me???

It's part of what I mentioned in the Officer's Mess. Server-based email ain't working and the buggers haven't yet answered me. I haven't received any email for 14 hours.

If anyone needs to contact me, use gwballATsympatico.ca, or PM me (preferable). I will notify when rectified, although I suspect it will take until I switch providers.

Thanks for replying Geoff. I hope this gets fiixed/sorted out soon. My own emails and such aren't that important but I assume a lot of members are and they ain't getting through when they need to.

Do you figure this is just server troubles or is it a combination of the server and the older version forum software???

With the progressively regular outages we've experienced, I know it's the provider and/or whomever they subcontract for server space. The software is not at fault (with the minor exception of the change-of-email-address which we're aware of). I'll probably upgrade the software once we get back from Oz, but first things first; what we had yesterday ain't working right now. I want to migrate before we leave in case the whole thing crashes and burns. It may be as soon as this weekend, but like I said, it may involve a day's outage as the DNS information is repopulated throughout the internet.

I don't know the whole process, not being savvy about any of this internet/server stuff, but it sounds good to know things are being dealt with and that MLU will soon be running okay ... good luck with whoever you find as a new server!!!

Looks like my SUNRAY email is back up, but it doesn't change my decision. Aside from cleaning the house, sorting this is my weekend tasking.

Default Not sure if it helps in diagnosis but..

since late Tues or early Wed I have not been able to use Netscape browser for the forums (received an error message about a PHP application) but it seemed OK for the rest of the site. I have had PMs apparently disappear into space this week. All attempts to view forums on Internet Explorer have been successful.

Even with the troubles it is still wonderful to have such a resource (mainly) available.

Been up all day for ME... but Karmen and Keefy have told me they've had repeated problems getting in... let me know if you've had problems. I've been trying to negotiate a new deal with a new provider. Keep me posted.

Access from Holland is o.k., except for the "customary (for not much longer, I hope!) outages".

Default access problems

I have had problems all week. It was down all morning here and is just now up. It looks like a DNS issue as I could ping the ip address but not the url.

Default Well ... i'm in!

I finally was able to get in just now ... haven't been able to at all yesterday except for ONCE very briefly early yesterday, then absolutely not at all until just now! ... and basically same scenarios for about the last 3 days.

[quote]Bob is having huge problems as well Geoff![/b]

I did receive your email Geoff ... that's the only mail I had from MLU site today so far (I mean VIA the forum like emails through my profile or notifications) I don't have the IP address to try accessing it that way ... can you note it down in here for me/us please and thank you?

Now I have to check what new posts have happened in the last few days and hope I don't lose access again ...

Amazing ... I haven't had a problem accessing MLU all day today!!! Weird to have this so unpredictable ... and I know of a number of others who have been having the same problems.

Derek ... Sapper ... mentioned he's been getting that same page as me about can't access webpage ... and its come and go ... like its been for me.

I'm worried MLU just may go pfffffffffffft into thin air soon ... any news on a new server prospect yet?

Its been a frustrating few days trying to access MLU but everything seems to be in order now. In fact tonight I have noticed that the resolution of the printed word is that good you would think that everything is in Bold.

Looking forwrd to seeing you guys in just over a week.

Bob

I have a different set of problems with our website, other than recurrent outages.

1) I don't receive my PMs sometimes for up to 2 weeks after they are sent to me. After I finally do get them and open them, the "you have a new PM" message keeps popping up for several days after I have read them.

2) The forums don't refresh each time I open them. The date of the last thread submitted is usually several days old. I have to click on the "see latest thread" icon at the bottom of the page in order to read the latest threads. However, I continue to promptly receive notification by email that someone has responded to a forum that I joined.

But I'm not complaining. I love our little website and the community it has brought together. Derek.

I'm having to access MLU through an alternative link today as my usual is NOT working again. At least the alternative one is this time, but it craps out on me sometimes too :

I have found that keyboard button to be of inestimable value and use it frequently in many applications including herein before leaving the machine.

I had trouble getting in yesterday though didn't try very often as I've been sick with fluish something. The link that has me in now is an alternate one Geoff sent me, but sometimes it hasn't worked either. Like yesterday ... no link worked.

Any news on a new server yet Geoff?

I swear that Murphy's Law is at play right now ... or the stars are crossed these days as far as health and disruptions go. I went out of my way to "avoid" exposure.

Funnily enough though, today is the FIRST day in a LONG TIME that I've actually been able to access MLU every time I tried. I was even able to gain access through the regular links, plus have been all getting notifications again today as far as I can tell. I don't count on not having problems happen again so emailing directly is sure to get through to me, where MLU is very iffy these days. (I'm still not okay healthwise. This is too tiresome)

FWIW. I have had full access through the regular MLU sign in for the last 36 hours or so.

I'm not sure if Jiff migrated to a new hosting server or whatever or if the old supplier got their s@#$ together.

What a pleasure!!
Bill

Hi Bill, and the rest of you

Geoff was not able to migrate to a new server yet and will not be able to do this change until after he gets home from Australia.

I've been having NO problems for the last two days either. Amazing. I have no idea why things seem to work okay for me now, or why they weren't for a while there. I'm even getting all the new notifications in a timely manner too, I believe I hope this continues working okay.

Meanwhile, Hanno and I are in charge of MLU while Master Sunray is away in Australia, I will be monitoring and watching out for the forum, and there are a lot of Admin things I'm able to do (same Admin powers as Geoff and Hanno) and Hanno can do some things I can't (like submit trouble tickets to the server when the forum goes down)

As long as I'm home (trip still up in the air as I'm still quite sick at the moment) I will be available, along with Hanno, to everyone if there are any problems and I will help if I can, so don't hesitate to PM or email me if there are any problems or forum questions.

Ma, I've had full, complete and uninterrupted access ever since you took over...guess MLU just needed a woman's touch!
