what i'd love is an easy "replied posts" button or such. So I could easily check which of my posts were replied to during the day and don't miss things / don't need to read everything every time I'm off for a few days.
there used to be an option to check thanked posts, so I used that to see which posts got attention, but I don't think that works anymore.
Anyway, some easy quick option to check replies would be awesome.
If I go www.pacersdigest.com the site takes me to the Able Towers page. If I go pacersdigest.com the site takes me to the forum.
Are you sure you don't have those two mixed up?
No joy on the desktop. Cache cleared, reboot, fixed DNS to Able's suggested DNS server IP.
I still get one of two things on that machine (IE or Firefox, so it's system based not browser)
1) If I enter www.pacersdigest.com it takes me to the webpage "Nowhere, Home of the Zaugurz Tribe"
2) If I use the explicit IP (found using Tracert on both laptop and desktop) I get what is clearly fresh information, but without any of the proper graphical structures of the webpage, and then if I try to use the displayed links they all come back as dead.
www.pacersfans.com has the same effect
I did a connection repair to clean the local DNS cache too. Even if I Google for it I get the "Nowhere" site.
So freaking weird/annoying. This isn't really for Able at this point, just anyone who's run into this. Everything including the modem and router has been power cycled. Caches cleared. And I can trace to the IP just fine, the connection exists. It just doesn't fetch right.
At least one or two other users are having the same problem as Seth.
Update - just used the explicit IP to get to this thread, but with the same formatting issues I already mentioned (like it can't resolve where all the formatting stuff should be coming from).
If I go to 184.108.40.206/showthread (and so on) then it does go fetch the content correctly, but the links are dead, no background image, links and text have generic, poor structure. But I see my previous post even.
I REALLY hate to say this but the problem is on your end.
www.pacersdigest.com should at all times resolve to 220.127.116.11 and not 18.104.22.168 that is very iikely dns cache, dirty dns, it could also very well be that your isp (despite fresh dns lookups using my dns) offers up cache routes and cache pages, but in all it is pretty easy to check, go to any check dns site, like f.i. www.dnswatch.com and put in www.pacersdigest.com and it will tell you the above is correct.
clear browsercache, cookies and history, on all browsers, remove all tmp files in /users/name/appdata/local/<browser>
from Start –> Run –> type cmd and enter.
also if you changed dns (LANPORT/TYPE)properties>ipv4>properties>tick use the following dns; 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 then it can be your isp changed it back :) (windows allows that on certain forces settings in setting up a connection if your pc is the "main" connection (so others connect through it) or it just "overrides" your dns settings in the modem (change the dns on the modem)
many many options for this to happen.
No, it's only on the desktop which never left the local location (obviously).
I was out of town with the laptop during the change.
Now running through the same router/modem the laptop is fine and the desktop is confused somehow. It won't fetch the page information like layout and graphics, only info/text. And that's only if I replace www.pacersdigest.com with the explicit IP address. And this despite the Tracert for www.pacersdigest.com from the desktop tracing to the correct IP.
So it's like it kinda fetches correctly from the DNS but somehow something is still cached and forces all the page layout info to search in the old location which no longer exists. I'm stumped as to why Tracert would pull the right IP but typing that address in sends me to a different IP. Since Trace is going through CMD then it's probably something in Windows (XP btw).
Able - It has to be my end obviously. I'm only asking here in case someone that's better with webpage fetching might hear the symptoms and understand what is broken. It sucks. Every other device is fetching correctly.
The "Nowhere" page looks local to you, just a few digits up on the IP. I assume it was one you setup as a catch bucket for fetches that ask for a non-existing location.
www.dnswatch.com didn't work, but www.dnswatch.info did.

I'm having the same problem as Seth...Tried changing the DNS Lanport Properties and also tried flushing the DNS to no avail. Here's what I'm getting from dnswatch.info:
Hicks, can you try to change the dns servers on your domain page into 1: chronos.a3le.com and 2 gaia.a3le.com ?
all small bit help though this is very very small
Another trick for the users, open cmd and type "nslookup www.pacersdigest.com"
it will tell you what server it asked and what the answer was, if it still happens you definintely have either hanging cache (delete cookies, very important) or your isp is caching
One thing to try is to simply delete your TCP/IP protocol from your Network settings for your Local Area Connection, reboot and then re-install it again. Doing this may wipe out any existing TCP/IP settings on the O/S level and re-install/reconfigure everything from scratch. That....or delete your Local Area Connection, reboot and then add it back. :shrug:
NOTE - Usually, you should be able to delete/re-install the TCP/IP settings without any issue....but if ( for some reason ), you are missing files....it maybe hard to re-install it.
Disable and enable works just as well and is lots less riskyMaking sure cookies and password data is deleted is key though
Btw notice this server is blazing fast with replies
ipconfig /dnsflush is your friend. At least if you are using Windows. ;)
Apparently Bob was using pacersdigest.com and not www.pacersdigest.com . Is that going to change to where both work again?
Still can't get it...Not sure what to try anymore. :mad::cry:
Maybe he edited his hosts file the last time there was a DNS change?
Not a huge deal but, is my post count and stuff gone? Join date as well.
