trouble accessing tfl

Anyone who was unable to access TFL at all over the weekend (aside from early Sunday morning, when TFL really was down), please post here.

I was having trouble, but it seems to be working.
Access seems to be rather intermittent!!!

A little trick I found out if you are on DSL: I couldn't get TFL at all a few months ago, Derek and I worked on the problem for days. I was behind some kind of firewall and even the Quest people couldn't figure it out.

Finally, I unplugged the power to my DSL box, let it sit a few minutes, and plugged it back in... Problem Solved!

There was a routing loop for traffic from the TFL server to certain other networks. I still don't have any response from concentric (a.k.a. xo communications), but they seem to have fixed it as of Monday morning.

routing loop?

Sounds like an anti plot!

In any case, I haven't had access all day (Saturday) today until just now.

Nope, this time it was a server problem. The trouble seems to be with the aacraid driver or raid hardware. There'll probably be another hour or so downtime early in the week (early morning probably) while TFL gets transferred back to the old server.
