Apologies for the downtime.  A cisco switch failed in the data centre and has (obviously) been recently restored.

Regards

Thanks for the update Brian.  Cisco let us down badly at work yesterday as well - totally unrelated to this site - so maybe they need to pedal a bit faster there Wink

Brian/All,

I've noticed that since the downtime (apology more than accepted by the way, reliability has been the best it's ever been recently, so nobody can really complain too loudly compared to the "good old days" of it being down more than up), things have slowed down a bit - often the search doesn't work properly, and pages only seem to be half loading? Not sure if it's related, or if it's a problem with my internet, but thought I'd mention it just incase anything is "up".

I've also had issues over the last few days with Railpage either being completely inaccessible at times with domain not found, or incorrectly rendering in which case I assume static.railpage.com.au from where the stylesheets are served could not be resolved.

Certainly on Tuesday when I did an nslookup for the domain I was getting a weird result for one of the authoritative nameservers (ns3 from memory).  It can be a matter of luck which nameserver you hit and a bad return will be cached for a period.

I also noticed there also seems to have been multiple changes over the last couple of days to the domain registration.  Changes in DNS hosting if that is the cause can be tricky at the best of times.

https://www.railpage.com.au/f-t11375372.htm See this thread. Due to the nature of DNS it can take up to 48 hours for the changes to fully propagate, which should've been yesterday.

Before this issue I was able to browse to the site using http://Railpage.com.au - Now, for some reason, I have to enter www. - Can we get that fixed, I have the site bookmarked in my BB and would rather not have to fiddle for hours to change it.

EDIT: no, scrap that, but for some reason Optus has not refreshed THEIR DNS server for their phone internet yet...

There have been no changes to that record.  Can you please check this again for us.
