Access to the Wiki

Post by Sudane Erato »

Could someone offer the secret to access to the wiki. I know that Gwyn said that the link from the site to the wiki doesn't always work. It doesn't for me at all. Is there some other way to access it?

I don't know Sudane. It works very eratically for me also when I'm connected from home. I have had the opportunity to try the connection from other locations and they do not seem to have the same problem necessarily. I have contacted my ISP with a request for help on the issue. My impression is that the problem is caused by some ISP's DNS's resolving the .us-TLD wrongly or not at all. If this sounds like gibberish to you let me just state that I believe establishing a mirror or relocating the wiki to another domain would take care of the problem permanently. Perhaps this could be viewed also as an opportunity to (re)consider the feasibility of storing our important government bureaucracy infrastructure on a 'privately owned server.'

No, the same for me... :(. Either from my office or from my home... two different ISP's.

It used to work fine. Has something relating to access to the site changed?

I suspect it has something to do with the .us top-level domain I'm in; it seems to work erratically.

Works for me, though (I had never any trouble with it, really). As said before, the best I can offer is to "synchronise" the site through some sort of mirroring scheme elsewhere...
