Anyone having intermitent trouble getting onto ehell?
« on: July 21, 2011, 08:54:31 AM »
I've noticed since the change over in e hell that I cannot always get on the site.  It's like the browser can't get it to come up. 
Is this peculiar to me,or are others having problem as well? 

I tried on Flamingvixen and Internet Explorer and tried going in from favorites or bookmarks and from Googling it, but it makes no difference.  I can't always get on.  The problem lasts from a few minutes to longer when I give up and go back later. I generally just go to the forum, but I tried getting in by going to the home page, but it made no difference. 

Am I dense or is there a reason that F-fox always gets changed to Flamingvixen?  I actually like flamingvixen, better, but I'm just wondering.

I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

I have often had trouble for about 20 minutes every morning, beginning about 7:30 US central time, year round.

I was going to post that as it just happened again. Thanks.

We have Explorer and are on Comcast as our provider. They are always very sorry that they can't connect.  :)

I've been having the connection problem in the morning during the same time period, but I've only been noticing it since the upgrade.

OK, then it isn't my system being temperamental.  Thanks for responding.

I use IE at work, and this happens every so often. Usually I'll already be in the forum, and when I try to go to a new page/topic/section, I won't be able to get in. I have to wait a while or come back later.

Every day, around 12.30 BST. It's annoying, it's during my lunch hour!

Good, I'm not the only one!  We have Verizon DSL and use Flamingvixen too, and I wasn't sure if it was my connection that can be pretty shoddy sometimes, or what.

We'll be changing to Comcast/Xfinity soon so we'll see how that changes my connection.

Every morning, around 8:30 Eastern time. Even before the change. I just can't get on for a while, and then I can again.

I had this issue yesterday and the day before, but I didnt notice the time exactly, it was definitely in the AM.  I could get to every other site fine (google, cnn, yahoo, etc.) just not this one.  I've noticed it happens more frequently since the upgrade.  Other times it was so rare (for me) that I just figured it was a fluke.

I often have the same problem at the same time (around 7:30 AM CST), and I use FF too.
I searched for nothing on the Internet and got 175,000,000 hits.

I let administration know of the problem we are having since the change over.  Maybe there is some adjustment that needs to be made or something.

I had a very similar problem a couple years ago when there was an upgrade.  I couldn't login at all.  I had to do a DNS dump.  I wonder if that is the same problem.  Here is a link to the stickied thread in this folder:

I don't know if the IP is the same, so check with Miss Jeanne first... but this part you can do:

Go to start -> Run -> type cmd -> and then type ipconfig/flushdns

This is what worked for me when I had the problems.

I am having this problem aswell.... but not always at the same time... it just seems like Ehell is offline for a few minutes and then comes back up.
