Geoff, that is not quite accurate. There have for example been times where some of the names have been the same machine and others when they weren't. I think the best machine was one Max had when in buisiness. Loki at one time reported itself to netcraft as an AS/400. It later reported itself as having the same IP address (and a Win PC) as www.

A ns lookup now for mudcat.org reveals 3 web servers

Help is on 99

Buddy does still show his presence on Mudcats public records as 110

www, loki, ragtime, shorty and taj are names assigned to 105.

They may or may not be accessible and if they are, may or may not be the same copy of the server programs (though the database they use would have to be common). It can be difficult to work out what is what as a server can host many sites and a default web site for an IP number can be set. At the moment, for example although help is on 99, the default for that IP address brings up a copy of the main forum..

JeZeBeL - the old alternative entrances to Mudcat - Ragtime, Buddy etc. became redundant quite a while back when Max replaced his old computers with a new set of hardware. These do not have the same set of names which the old servers had. Now to contact the ain regular setup you just use "www.mudcat.org".
The new "Back Door" is a separate thing (I think it is on the same machine as the Mudcat Help forum), which people such as Jon and John have spotted and is often working when the main system has been unreachable.
Quack!

Today, Thursday, I got "Mudcat.org not found" at 8:50 a.m. Eastern STANDARD time. Came in the back door. Reading this thread, I decided to try how it is now. Exited to the Desktop, got on again, and:

At 9:15 a.m. Eastern STANDARD time, Mudcat home came up just fine.
Of course I don't know how long there had been a problem before I came on at 9:50.

I usually come in here between 1.00 and 2.30 pm UK time, and it's been perfectly well-behaved every day this week, whereas last week I had to use the back door every day. No trouble early evening or midnight/1am this week either.

Is it now playing up at bad times for US Catters, or is it "reliable" now.

And here's how we amused ourselves a few years ago when the Cat kept going down Cat Down

Not complaining ~ just logging information that *might* help someone diagnose what's going on.

I'm back in via the front door as of 3+pm CDT time (US). I have a couple of PM exchanges going on, so I tried logging in about once an hour throughout the day ~ kept striking out until 10-20 minutes ago.

I agree with MBSLynne.

I appeciate Max's efforts.

I think that we're glad that Mudcat is here and wemiss it when it's down.

I for one have not a clue what the technical posts are 'saying'.
It's all mumbo jumbo to me.

I just read this thread to confirm that I wasn't the only one who experienced trouble getting in the door..

So I guess that means I'm addicted to Mudcat. It's a good thing that most of the time I can check in to threads that interest me and do my work too.

I'm sorry! All this complaining has finally made me mad.

Now here is a thread that should be censored!

From the thread so far, can we make the following statements?

1. The problem sometimes clears by itself
2. At other times, it is cleared by a reboot
3. It does not depend on the NUMBER of people logged in
4. It does NOT seem to be associated with spyware, adware etc

If so, it would seem likely that it is caused by someone external
accessing the site.

In which case is it the same person/site each time, or a different one? Is there any way to check the access stats and find out?

Does the server software allow sufficient monitoring that could detect someone downloading the whole site? Has anyone been able to monitor the system while it is 'down' and look at the disk & CPU utilisation?

A subtle change noted: Previously when I went to the backdoor and logged in (while the main server was up) my cookie for the main server got crunched and I had to log in again when I returned to the main one. I tried it again over the weekend, and managed to get a cookie (or maybe it's two?) that seems to let me be a real person both places - or at least that did all day Saturday.

Could be Leadfingers but I honestly don't know. The general uptime for Mudcat see here is poor but there certainly to me seems to be more problems than just that at the moment.

I do have my doubts as a general principle over things like Mudchat that use the main server to hold chat variables and serve pages to participants on a server that is already (IMO) unstable but there is no way I can identify that as a cause of problems, and given that as far as my best guest would be, most chats would be at MC night time and problems appear mostly at MC early morning, I would suspect my own doubts are unfounded in terms of the cause.

It also needs to be remembered that MC has run more reliably as this with chat running.

Just a thought , allowing for the fact that I am NOT a 'puter geek at all , but its been OK in the morning both days this week - and its Half term in UK isnt it ? Could this be trigered by a SCHOOL 'puter ??

The odd drop outs at different times could be caused by a number of different things - A Hiccup with a line in Mudcat County , or whatever . I was in Mudchat last night and we all got bunged out for about ten minutes !

That could be either Lynne. While I do like tech and could even run to writing small trivial programs in a variety of languages (pascal like, basic like or c like), but nothing complicated, a lot of my attempts at diagnosis don't really demand anything tech headed.

An indication of where a problem lies can be to try to reach other sites. If I can reach 20 others without problem and I can't get to Mudcat or Mudcat is slow for example, it is a pretty reasonable indication that the problem is with Mudcat and not with the Internet in general. I do things like that quite often when things don't work for me.

My router is also helpful as is the case now - (assuming I haven't got the post through and this is a duplicate. It is telling me at the moment it can not connect to Vartec [again]) The number of times this ISPP has fallen over in the past week is getting to be really annoying.

Well I don't know Jon, being a total techno-idiot. All I know is that I got a message about "unable to find the server mudcat.org", but I got straight in by the back door. I tried again before I went off line and could still not get in. I went straight in this time through the front door though, at just after 11.00 am English time.
