    Default Server problems?

    Hey for some reason PD isn't loading on my computer. Every time I try to access the site it tells me the server isn't responding. I've tried using both Safari and Firefox and I'm getting the same message. Oddly, I don't seem to be having any issues on my phone. I've tried restarting my computer, clearing my cache/history, and nothing works. Is this normal?

    I was having the same problem. For me, it was some kind of DNS issue. I couldn't figure it out, so I put the IP address of the site in my hosts file and now all is well.

    I've found that if I use my ISP's DNS server address as a secondary DNS server, and 4.2.2.1 (a free public DNS server) as a primary DNS server, then I get back on PD fairly quickly whenever Able switches web servers. My local ISP's DNS always is slow to pick up the new IP / URL association.

    You can do that change under Network connections / TCP/IP properties in XP.

    You can do what they're talking about, or wait it out. Sooner or later (I'm told it's usually up to a week from the time of the server change) it should work normally for everyone.

    Okay, well I guess it's back to normal now. That was bizarre. I forgot how much I relied on PD to talk Pacers.

    It's good to be back.

    Much thanks to you Hicks for posting the instructions on the alt PD board. I never realized just how much I use PD to discuss the Pacers. Heck, my own family and friends barely will talk about them because "no one likes them anymore"

    Either way, I'm glad to be back here. Can't wait for everyone else to rejoin us as well.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!
