Sorry about the site outage this morning...

Posted by schlange on Friday, February 1, 2013

We made some changes late yesterday to restrict spiders on the site, and they ended up breaking things when the server restarted some services automatically around midnight like it always does. 

Thanks to everyone who emailed/texted/IM'd me to alert me! 

If you're still experiencing problems, you need to clear your browser cache. Your computer has saved a "broken" version of a Hangout page, and you need to delete that so it will load the right one! Instructions can be found at's-Cache

Glad to see the site is back up, but with "no one in the chatroom" I am unable to enter.

I couldnt get on the site via my regular favorites link...had to go around by clicking on the link to my e-mail drawing confirmation. I'll keep trying the regular way, however.

Eric - I can't get in directly; the only way I'm able to get in is from the Facebook page link

Also, clicking various links within the forums - such as when you're in one forum and click to go back to all forums - gets me booted out.

Try clearing your browser cache, eagleisland. It's working properly on our side now, so there's nothing we can change.

Ah, the life of a system administrator. Glad I turned down the chance to be one 15+ years ago.

Folks, I had to have my wife fix it!! Here's what worked for me: Go to Tools, Internet Options, Security tab, Trusted sites, then Sites. Enter "" and click Add. You may have to uncheck the box
"Require server verification (https:) to all sites in this zone."

We did this and then I couldn't get to the login page. So I had to go through the same steps, and add "" to the trusted sites. (make sure to type "https" not just http)

Works now!

I am getting pop ups in the video boxes featuring videos posted by members. It appears in the lower grey rectangular box just above the volume slide. I never had that before unless this is a new feature. One of the pop ups advertises blues guitar lessons.
