Well it's been an interesting last 5 days, I can tell you. The AT&T servers and the server for WowBB have been having a standoff as to who has the bigger dick. Well I'm not sure who won, but thank god it got settled. Since Friday, the internet has been in a turmoil because there was some kind of routing problem that wasn't getting resolved. I was on the phone from Friday to Monday with AT&T corporate, Liquidweb and numerous other offenders in this little standoff. I hope this has not inconvenienced anyone and just so you know, we were 'this' close to moving our site to a new server to rid ourselves of this drama.

Apparently the problem was with AT&T, Comcast Quest users not being able to access our site or any other on the WowBB server NS1. Someone put a block in the way to kill some spam or a DNS attack and it ended up making about 20 people very angry since they couldn't get into their own sites. If you used a different ISP, like AOL, you were able to connect, just not the other users.

I hate corporate standoffs...:)

So for the corporate assholes that lied to me, made excuses, blamed others, this is for you..

Glad you can finally get back on. I still can't get on from work, hopefully the change-over will be fixed by then.

You were fine getting in from Germany.  It was American ISP's trying to get thru that were customer's of AT & T, Qwest and Comcast that it affected.  Wowbb took some drastic action cause AT & T was giving everyone the run-around and now it's finally all cleared up.
