Site Maintenance


Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

Around 2PM'ish (GMT) today (21/1) there will be some site maintenance where the site will be temporarily offline (if not totally offline, there will be a forum offline message)

It shouldn't be down too long (a familiar thing that Geezer's wife hears)

When its back up again, I will take the message off the main page.

Aaaargh there's a fag in that photo! (Yanks calm down - I mean a cigarette). In my last week in UK I was staying with a smoking friend so joined her in sin (so to speak) and am now doing cold turkey. As I look at that p[icture I can imagaine lifting the fag to my mouth and taking a good long drag at it.

Mod, I`m having all sorts of problems on here at the moment. Struggled to get on at times last night and this morning. Keep getting SQL errors. Could this be because I`m using Chrome?

Afraid that was just a temporary fix because its back to offline for me again, cleared cache, cookies and flushed dns loads of times now without any luck - whats going on with my browser :(

In that case, and assuming it's not working in any of your browsers, I'd suggest that it could be your ISPs Domain Name Servers not properly working. The best solution I see, would be to try Google's free DNS servers.

Make sure you back up what you're overwriting at each stage, I don't want to be in big trouble if anything goes wrong, and you'll want to set it back if it doesn't work.

Try that, and see how it goes.

An easier option if you are running Windows.

Open windows/system 32/drivers/etc

Open 'hosts' file with administrator privileges in notepad, add this on the bottom of it

188.65.113.2 www.theshedend.com
188.65.113.2 theshedend.com

Save it and restart browser.

Couldn't get in for ages then I saw the message about getting rid of my cookies so I went and threw out all of the biscuits from my biscuit tin and hey presto!

As if biscuits in your house last long enough to make it to the biscuit tin....

Every time I go into a thread it jumps straight back to the first page of the thread and then keep refreshing the page every few seconds by itself... :/

Have you been dipping into Mod and Sweet Waffle's favourite thread? That makes the hand twitch... (well, not mine, obviously...)

That sounds more like an issue with your browser than anything related this end. What browser are you using? If you got any others installed, try those out to see if its the same?

That way, we could tell if it is the forum or even a javascript problem on your computer.

Well, this is awkward!
