Connectivity, What?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:09 pm

I was unable to access this site today, and I assumed that everyone else was having the same problem. However, according to Sitemeter, others apparently were connecting at times when I could not.

Which proves that there are more things I do not understand about the Internet than there are stars in the universe.

Of course, when I saw that connecting would likely be impossible, I let the germ of an idea I had just sit around in my cruller and atrophy. If I can breathe live into at this point I will, but, after sipping a bit of Everyday Bourbon, it may be difficult to fire up those three or four content-producing neurons.

Smart money is betting on Mr. Recliner.


  1. I didn’t have any problem with the site, but Sitemeter hasn’t given any visitor details for more than a day. Bourbon therapy begins at 6pm.

  2. Sounds like it was a DNS problem at your ISP. It happens periodically – the DNS server has a glitch and your computer can’t find the web site in the list so it knows where to go.

    For instance when I want to surf over here – I can type in and the DNS server (without me having to worry about it – will change it to the IP address – YAY for DNS!). But if the server isn’t working for some reason… you can’t find the page that way. Now if you knew your IP address you could actually type it in to get there.

    So if DNS isn’t working and I type in
    I could still visit the blog on the Parkway. But since we can’t remember numbers so well – we rely on DNS to help. It sucks when it doesn’t work.

  3. I was here, waiting for a post. It was very quiet. Luckily I had a book with me.
