J-archive down?

Post by TenPoundHammer »

For the last two days, I'm getting timeout errors when trying to access J-archive. Has it had an unnanounced outage?

So why can't I access it? What would be causing this error?

Have you tried a different browser?
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I had a very similar problem myself a few months ago and I tested every reason for the problem and I narrowed it down to the only possibility: Comcast was blocking it on purpose, fully realizing what I had feared with the end of Net Neutrality.

My solution: a browser with a built in VPN, such as Opera

Sometimes people's IPs somehow get banned and you need to send your IP address to an archivist so they can unban it. Happened to me once.

I finished dinner and Amazing Race is not on until 8, so I'll get the J! game in now. [Fingers crossed]

Giving Alex Maggio and update on his page worked for a good start to getting the archive working.

Maybe can also put a note on the player page of the player Jason gave a shout-out to in his interview today.

Be my guest as how you word it will be best. The job of adding the extra wordage for the introduction of the KJ category is up for grabs as well. Thanks for your help with the correction suggestions. I did some of the ampersands but still missed some as always.
