    I've had two members email me and ask if something is wrong with the site/server. They can't sign on.
    Mike Lutzenberger and Magistrate.
    Its working fine for me.

    Paul Moore is having problems as well.
    I have talked to Keith Robinson, who has contacted Charlie about it.
    Apparently Go Daddy, after an update, is not recognizing some servers or something to that effect.
    So it is being addressed. But we need to know who all are having problems.

    I had problems over the weekend, but I can get in now.
  4. I have had it several times the last few days too but thought it was pilot error on my end. But just now got on fine.

    It has happened to me at more or less random times: sometimes I can get on; other times I can't. No discernible pattern.

  7. FYI I’m blocked again. I am Spectrum (Rectum) former Time Warner if it matters. Only way I can get on is turning off wi fi and using phone data.

    Up until this AM the 11th, I have had NO issues - then BAMB - I get a "failed" message. I closed the browser and tried again which worked normal?

    I'm having log on trouble as well. I got it on today and so far no problems (at lest today!)

    Over the past couple days, the problem has become intermittent. The DNS error seems to pop up in the morning, and then clears up by the evening.

    I understand Charlie is working on this, and he is the only one that can fix it. It seems to me Charlie may need some help with some of these administrating duties.. It shouldn't all be on one guy to fix this. I dont have the knowledge to do it, or I would offer to help him.

    The issue has been a Domain Name System (DNS) corruption that has affected various Internet Service Providers (ISPs) inconsistently. DNS is the way that a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) or website address is resolved or converted into an Internet Protocol (IP) address which is a unique set of groups of three digits that identify where any given website is hosted.

    For more than you may want to know about DNS;

    Since I have access on both my phone and computer, it appears that the issue may be resolved.

    Still having intermittent, but consistent login problems. I fear the longer this problem goes on, the more people we will loose. I am gonna just say. We have lost a whole bunch of regular posters over the last few years, and it almost seems to be accelerating to a dismal end.
    The login issues need to be dealt with, front and center. Then maybe we can bring folks back, perhaps grow membership again. But we are on a sinking vessel right now, that is taking on water and torpedoes, in desperate need of leadership to wright this proverbial ship!
    FB should not be the end of this righteous Frisco site.
    Administrators and fellow Staff members, have a non paid, demanding "what have you done for me lately" type job. I dont have the answers, but do see issues. I am not willing to give the ship up yet. But we seem to be almost rudderless right now, and that has got to change.
    Let us hear from you all about this.
