  • Of all the obnoxious things....

    Today, I opened my browser....no site. Hmmmm, is hystersisters down? Tried logging in to ftp....won't connect. Telnet? no. SSH? no. Webmin? no. UGH Went to check catalog.com....no page....hmmmmm.

    Okayyyyy so I find something else to do for awhile figuring that they'll get it fixed soon enough. One of our hostesses signs on....I ask her "Is the site down for you?" and she says NO! Okay.....something's kookie here, but my ISP is loopy sometimes so I find something else to do.

    AIM throws me around for awhile and my ISP email isn't working right so I'm even more convinced that it's just a fluke till I go to http://www.the-cloak.com and throw the website address into the cloaked browser. Voila, I'm at hystersisters. Okay, so *somebody* has blocked my IP from ALL the catalog.com servers. Not only that, but I called catalog.com and waited on hold for nearly an hour...never speaking to a human being. I'm irritated now.

    So, I know that they could have blocked my IP, but I haven't done ANYTHING to warrent that. Anyone have any clues as to why/how this could happen as an accident? I had a lot of work to do today and was all set to get it done. Now the day's just about over and I've gotten NOTHING done. <SIGH>

    I don't think it could happen on accident, but you never know. If they have online tech support I would send something that way so maybe you get an answer quicker because if you haven't done anything to warrant this - it shouldn't be happening.

      VDI Have been having huge IP Routing problems over the past few days, I know i've felt the knock on effects...

      However try accessing again now... it might work as they have a new router in place.

            That happens too often (block an IP of a certain user but more than that user is affected).

              They could be blocking a whole IP ranage like 210.xxxx for an example but I find that stupid as it would affect the web sites hits and block around 100's of users.

                Thanks for the offer, Dave. Thankfully, I won't have to use it. I got ahold of catalog's tech support and he wrote an email to the guy who takes care of blocking IP's....after asking me if I'd been "bad". My ISP was whacked yesterday too, and between the two of them, one blaming the other one, it's fixed.

                      Yes, but grown men (and women) never like to be at fault.
