    Outage- Fixed

    My bad about the outage. There was a DNS issue that's now corrected.

    Some of you may be wondering -- who is this Jagrmeister guy? Have a look at some of my posts from MGTOW Forums--> Jagr Archive (collection of my articles)



    Stuff I do: Box, Surf, Tennis (3.5/4.0), Downhill skiing. I lift 4x a week and have for 10 years.
    Stuff I like: Comedy shows, NBA, Reading Non-Fiction (sociology, philosophy, biographies).
    Random facts: I admire Steve Jobs. Favorite travel spots (Russia, Central America).

    Re: Outage- Fixed

    Thank you very much sir!
    I was getting really anxious and thought the site was down permanently.

    May I ask why this happens? Just out of curiosity since I don't know much about technology.
    Thank you again for all your effort and support keeping this forum alive Jagr.

    Re: Outage- Fixed

    Yes, thank you jagrmeister.

    For Opaque: DNS (domain name system) is the scheme that translates a domain name to an Internet address. It's a complicated, multi-tiered system that operates out of sight, invisible to us. If someone wants to register an unused domain, he'll go through a registrar and pay to have that done. Now he "owns" the domain. Then he needs one or more physical computers (used solely for his domain, or shared amongst domains) to host his content. He procures one, typically via a hosting provider so he doesn't have to do all the daily sysadmin crap himself. That computer will have an IP address. But, what mechanism does the translation from his domain name (say, abbababba9876.net) to the computer's IP address? That's the job of the domain name system, and that service has to be paid for, just like the domain name and the hosting service had to be paid for, and must continue to be paid for. In some cases, a person who reserves a domain name will buy the hosting service and the DNS from the same provider he got the domain name from. Sometimes, however, he'll use a different provider for each service. There's no right or wrong way. They're just different ways to accomplish the same thing.

    Hope this helps.

    I found out that a simple Ctrl + F5 was enough to restore order to this website for me. I tried flushing my dns, checked and deleted cookies and everything, but nada. Ctrl + F5 was enough.

    Re: Outage- Fixed

    Thank you to all of the owners/operators of this site. I mean, really... THANK YOU. This is a COMMUNITY here. I felt so cut off when this site was down. It makes me realize how much I connect with others here, contribute and benefit from the contribution of others. I'm proud to be part of this excellent community.

    So Major Thanks to the site operators and mods, for all that you do for the MGTOW community, and this specific MGTOW place.

    And now, as I crack another ice-cold beer... back to our regularly scheduled programming!
    - Feminism is Cancer.
    - Where have all the good men gone? Away. Far far away... from you.
    - NAWALT? Maybe, but EWALT means Russian Roulette is a much safer bet...

    I thought is was maybe a DNS attack. I'm sure we've made enemies.

    Re: Outage- Fixed

    You know its bad when they use puppies to try and calm you down. I thought we'd gone to the lost website graveyard for awhile. Then I found Resdayn's and SR's message's over on the TIM site. Thanks RD, or I'd still be looking at that stupid dog. What I get for being a computer idiot I guess.

    Don't look like I was missed much. So much for being a big fish in a small pond eh? What, was he gone, I didn't notice...

    I panicked too when I saw the puppy. I know only (of) you from elsewhere on the web. I was going to message you on ADV for the 411 but alas you haven't visited since February, foiled! Luckily Mr. Jagrmeister got it sorted in a timely manner & crisis avoided.

    Re: Outage- Fixed

    Thanks for the hard, probably thankless mod & admin work Jager & team.

    I was worried that the community was gone.

    I still think you should consider enabling HTTPS.

    We may have to eventually Run Silent, Run Deep like HQ did, or have one private forum for members with 10+ posts only.

    Re: Outage- Fixed

    Right, I forgot that happened last week. Not gonna lie, I feared the worst when I saw that the site was down and immediately thought "Dear God, the purge has expanded past social media" I don't wanna feel like I'm getting paranoid and shit because I'm usually level headed but with all of the deplatforming and shadow banning going on across the interwebs with anything redpilled, it has raised my guard up significantly. Some twat in twitter tried to compare MGTOW to the Alt-Right. The little pissant would've gotten smacked upside the head for speaking such foolishness but these SJW's just love to hear themselves bitch.

    Glad to know it was just technical difficulties and nothing beyond that.

    We have a DNS service through a 3rd party service and I thought it would auto-renew but didn't. Should be fine going forward.
