The old forums have now been fully moved to http://www.photomacrography1.net .

This includes converting all links embedded in forum postings in both the old and new forums. Whatever used to take you to the old forum when clicked, should now do that again -- just using a slightly different name!
So I think, folks, that this problem is all fixed, at least for everything we administrators have control over. ()

Bookmarks and links that you've saved someplace else, you'll have to fix yourselves. Wink

Let me know if I've overlooked anything, and keep those pics and posts coming in! Very Happy

And finally, I'd like to say THANKS! to Danny and everyone else who has been so supportive of keeping the old forums accessible. I'm sure if I tried to list all the names, I'd forget some, so I won't even try. You know who you are. So do I. Thanks! Very Happy

--Rik

For the record, this relates to the problem discussed here. May we never face one like it again. ("Yeah, right, now there's a fantasy for you!" Very Happy )

Hi Rik,

When I click on the link you give, IE7 says it can't find the page. Is this site not available or do you have to link to one of the original threads directly?

Thanks, bye for now

Howdy George. I'm using IE7 and http://www.photomacrography1.net/ for me, goes right to the main page on the old forum. I wonder if a cookie might be the problem George. BTW, why didn't they call it donuts instead of cookies ??? Very Happy Cool

Danny.

Hi Danny,

I just tried it again, and I now get the page displayed. The wonders of computers always amaze me. Wink

I've often wondered why americans call those filled "Doughnuts", doughnuts. It seems to me that a doughnut should have a hole in it, hence the name "Dough-Nut". Laughing Cool

Bye for now.

At best, computers are like a zoo full of trained animals. Usually they do something close to what you want, but seldom exactly. Every once in a while, they do something completely weird, and you have no idea why. And if you want them to do something different, you can anticipate a long and awkward period of retraining.

The forums just needed a bit of retraining. Wink

I think you got caught by the old "now where would that be?" problem. If a domain name has not been used recently in your part of the network, then the name servers have to go somewhere else to look it up. Sometimes that takes longer than your browser is willing to wait, and it says it can't find the page. By the time you try again, the name server has learned where to go, and you get pages quickly.

Not much any of us can do about it, unfortunately. Those aspects of the net are run by, um, somebody else. To the best of my knowledge, I've never even found one of them to talk with!
