As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
With people visiting for the holidays, there are by my count six computers currently in my house, all connected to the same wireless network. One of them and only one is unable to access a specific site, and only this site.
(The site happens to be Facebook, but I don't know if that matters.)
All five other computers can get to Facebook no trouble and my computer can get to any other site with no trouble, but every attempt to access Facebook results in a "Can't find server" error.
This is in Firefox 3.6, but Internet Explorer (which I started for the first time in months just to check) is the same.
I have deleted all of my cookies and cache, created a new Firefox profile, deleted my hosts file in system32 to let Windows generate a new one, rebooted my computer, disconnected from and reconnected to the wireless network repeatedly, cycled my cable modem and router, and tried multiple different proxy settings in Firefox (auto-detect, no proxy, etc). No joy.
However, if I start a VPN on the computer with HotSpot Shield, Facebook comes up with no problem.
I'm sure that probably means there is a relatively simple explanation and solution to this problem. I would really appreciate it if somebody could let me know what it is, because this is getting fairly infuriating.
