the first is from Chris Maltby, the translation from Jon. And I don't understand any of it, tho Jon's plain English translation at least means something. I just don't know why it is so.

............................

Both Sandra-in-Sydney and I reckon Mudcat is down. I can traceroute to the server but no-one is talking on port 80.
...................

Sandra, 80 is the standard HTTP (what you use for web browsing) port. You could translate what he said as "the computer itself is running but the web server on it isn't".

I don't know WHY either Sandra but the webserver is just another piece of software running on a computer and as with any other application, can crash.

What a webserver does is sits there listening (usualy on port 80) for someone like you with say IE to ask it to give you a page, which hopefully it supplies. HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol) is the "language" both parties understand.

Yes ~S~, I know..that's how I managed to get in here...but I can't use the chat and I can't send or receive PMs. And I really would like to be kept INFORMED of what's going on and what the prospects are, wouldn't you? Is this going to be happening every day for weeks again? Does anyone know when it's going to be fixed? It would be far less irritating if someone would just post progress reports every so often or something.

it's so frustrating when Mudcat is down, or as has been the case, when my computer was also not doing the right thing. I've watched all the members post & the only way I could get in was vis the IP as a guest.

Lynne, if the people you want to contaact are also members of the Annex, you can PM them there.

as it is early morning Mudcat-time Max probably doesn't know it's playing up again.

Yep Sandra, but at times even the simplest and stupidest things can drive you nuts.

I had one with Pip this morning. I'd persuaded her into Firefox and Thunderbird and away from OE/IE and installed the software for her. I got a yell that she couldn't post to the Annexe. Took me about 1hr to spot something which in all honestey should have been obvious to me...

Well I should be on Annexe...I joined last time Mudcat was down every day. Thanks though. However, a lot of people aren't on Annexe, so PMing is still a problem. What I REALLY miss is my middle-of-the-day chat.

And Max ought to know it's playing up..it's happening at the same time every day AGAIN.

I've had a reply from Giok which I'm trying to deal with but TLSSS, what is the problem you are getting. I could do with something like an error message reported or a sequence of events to stand a chance of working out what if anything is wrong.

Like what for example happens if you go to register, submit your details, does it accept them? Or maybe you are trying to login with Mudcat details that have yet to be registered by you at the Annexe?

I had no problem getting in this morning (approx8.45am) although it was a little slow loading.

Remember New York and the East Coast, where I believe Max lives, are experiencing the worst weather conditions for years.

Although this may be frustrating for you as individuals a little patience and understanding would not come amiss.

Subject: RE: Down?
From: John In Kansas
Date: 25-Jan-05 - 08:52 AM

I'm getting the same symptom as before. The main thread site starts to open, no error message, just sits and waits. Apparently the "search engine" associated with the crud Max asked us to clean up just sends so many "search results" that it monopolizes the server. The server appears to be running, but it's just too busy to finish the page download with my slow connection.

The guess is that someone who has the "search bar" on their machine has visited again, and it's doing its search all over again - probably with multiple bots all running, since this thing apparently puts a new bot on every page you visit, if you're a carrier. (breeder might be a better term here.) Typhoid Mary(s) on the web.

Just a little point... when you put Mudcat into a search engine and click on the link to Mudcat.org provided, it seems to be trying to log on via Loki. I thought Loki was no longer available...

Could it be someone is getting frustrated at always getting sent up a dead end?

I really fail to see what such outbursts of frustration achieve except to try and make the situation appear greater than it actually is.

A posting at 6.30am hardly means that the Mudcat had been down all day in fact when checking back through the postings it seems that it had only been off line for about half an hour at that time ......

In fact, it was only down for about 3 hours which given the weather conditions could have been something entirely out of Max's control.
And also, given the weather conditions, I am sure he has had more to worry about than just Mudcat.

No Nutty..it was actually down, as far as the front door goes, for 6 1/2 hours.And I can't see that recent weather conditions can have anythign to do with it, given that this same problem (ie being down between about 9 and 3 UK time every day) has been going on since New Year.

Sorry to contradict Lynne but if you check, as I did, through the times of the postings for the last 3 days you will see that there has not been a 6 hour gap.
Which means that although you may not have been able to access Mudcat other people have.

I run 3 browsers and often get access through one when I can't with another .....

The fact that I can't get access with Netscape or IE has nothing to do with Mudcat but with the vageries of my system.

I think Lynne is saying that www.mudcat.org has indeed often been down for 6 hours at a time, although people (myself included) have been able to get in via other routes like 207.103.108.99.

Coming in by this route you are forced to be a guest and cannot access PMs , chat etc.

It has been going on too long for it to be the weather: Max's own explanation for the problems is at the top of the threads page and here.

Well, the Santy worm is being annoying lately as well and has caused bottlenecked traffic all over the internet. As ISPs install filters for it this slowdown should clear up.

So, make sure your computer is clean of spyware and adware... and always remember that the internet isn't a rock-solid thing so it might not be a server problem.

Well it looks like the Mudcat.org front door approach is down yet again.....Last post by someone able to post with a Cookie looks to have been about 5.15 am Mudcat time, 10.15 am Uk time. Things had started to get slower for the previous half hour. If John in K is correct, I wonder if it could be someone in the UK, arriving at work about 9ish, and logging into MC and inadvertantly letting loose the "Bot" attack each time? If it is a "Work" PC then unless they have authorisation to run software like Spybot, it may be that they are infected and not aware, and not allowed to run Spybot to check either. Speculation I know but in the absence of any other info there is not much else to do.

Well it's Wednesday 10.44am in frosty Berkshire and I've had to use the backdoor yet again

Thanks Bassic, I was baffled when I read the Funweb explaination because it seemed to say the problem was in our own computers, not mudcat, yet the browser I use is safe from most adware/spyware (that is I can pick them up but there's nothing for them to get a handle on and get out again or effect operations) and my regular housekeeping rids my comp of them every couple of days. You're saying however that someone with Funweb "infects" the Cat which buggers it for everyone?

I do hope a cure is found soon; PM and Chat as well as threading had become part of my morning routine and I miss the bits of the Cat I can not get to via the back door.

I couldn't get in the back door either.. The 'Cat was lethargic at 10.55am (GMT UK), stopped at about 11.00am and is back now at 3.00pm.

I would be inclined to agree with Bassic and Lynne, the regular time slot is a bit suspicious and could warrant investigation.

Yes, I agree. However it wasn't down for so long this time. The last post from a member was at 5.14am mudcat time, and the first post from a member after it came back was at 9.27am mudcat time. So it was only down for a bit over 4 hours, instead of its usual 7 or so. All of which means.......I have no idea!
