Getting to the web site

I have been having trouble getting to the site when using what I have saved in my favorites which is www.firingline.com

have there been any changes lately?
To get here I had to go though Google

Yes.


It is THEfiringline.com

You need the "the" in there for it to resolve to the correct host.

Also, as of last weekend it's "thefiringline.com" rather than "www.thefiringline.com". The version with the www. used to serve up the same pages without redirecting. Now it simply redirects to the same page on the no-www alias/hostname.

Again, it will redirect you, so it's not a big deal -- you'll get to the right page regardless -- but you'll save yourself about 2 RTTs of latency on the bookmarked page if you bookmark the version without the www.

By all appearances, where you are, 2 RTT would be at least 140ms. There might also be another dns lookup involved so it could be a lot longer than 140ms.

Subsequent pages would load just as fast since once you're on "thefiringline.com" all links will be no-www.
