PostSubject: my computer hates BoB?   Sat Oct 13, 2012 2:01 pm

For some reason, my laptop has decided it doesn't want to connect to BoB (not found messages, as if the site were down, and only this site and it's various forums, not any other site that I usually go to, or try to connect to). So I connected to an old computer here, and no problem, so again, for some reason the laptop is at fault. Any computer literate types with any suggestions?

I have been having a similar problem, when using an iPad, intermittently throughout the day. I get the message `Unable to connect to server'.

I assumed it was a problem at the BOB end?

I'd love to blame BoB (not that it would help solve the problem) but I don't think I can. I of course did the usual things (restart computer, try a different browser after a further restart, call the computer many colorful names) but the laptop won't link to this site.

Your laptops and ipads are only acting up because of the current blends you guys are smoking.

Smoke a few good aromatics and your laptops and ipads will perk right up.

As far as I'm concerned, Gasmere and Revelation matches are aromatics!

I got a Server not found prompt when trying to check in on my iPad this morning. There are multiple ways of accessing the site, and when I typed in http://www.brothersofbriar.com I was able to log in.

I actually did that once, and it didn't work for me, but I am glad it did for you!

They were doing server maintenance and BoB was up and down. Then all of the Forums went down. Looks like it's fine now.

It's working OK for me. The images in the signatures weren't displaying (which is actually not a problem for me; less visual noise! Wink ) until after I logged in, but otherwise everything worked.

DrT999: I was going to suggest that it might have something to do with the browser settings on your laptop, but I suspect that Carlos prolly nailed it with the server maintenance thang. If you still have trouble with it, post back here and we can try to track down the problem. I love a good puzzle.

confused Beats me, I couldn't connect through this particular computer from yesterday afternoon through this afternoon, but had no problem on others. If it was my browser, it's apparently cleared up after about 6 restarts! Ain't technology wonderful! cheers

I've had this happen occasionally. Home computer won't connect. Usually waiting a couple hrs or more helps. Sometimes I've had to google the site. Figure it's something to do with the site as other sites seems to be OK.


Cheers,

RR

Yo, Yakster. Thought I'd drop by for my (approximately) semi-annual inspection. Laughing

I used to have problems connecting back before I discovered that it is my destiny to make as many sacrificial burnt offerings of Syrian Latweed as possible...I mean for a semi-humanoid mutant. Now I'm connected to "Bob" (the universe...not BoB the pipe board) in many magical ways. Wink

Anyhow, sorry I can't help. Phone connectivity problems are beyond my ability to diagnose. I still use a phone just for making phone calls.

Yeah, I know...barbaric. Razz

But I'm not completely primitive. I'm just holding out until they figure out a way that I can come here to get a beer. That's the connectivity plan I'm looking for.

Same problem for me with an iPhone today. I was thinking DNS issues with Verizon perhaps, as my connection with AT&T via my desktop system has been fine all day.

Ah...of course. Manuel. I fought weeth heem een de mountains. He ees lahk a brohther to me.

In fact, we're so close that he's an alter ego now.

Manuel answers the phone for me. In that way, if it's a call I don't want to take, Manuel starts speaking in tongues, and the caller goes away very confused. It's "our" little way of turning unwanted interruptions into entertainment.

Dr T, used this, worked great:



...kind of slowed down my posting, though. Which is probably a good thing.

Cool
