  • Site unavailable issues

    Our benevolent keepers at vBulletin decided to subscribe to Cloudflare for DNS security. They made this change last night. Well, we were already a Cloudflare customer and that's why we got banned in their DNS system as it looked like we were attempting to circumvent RFC's for DNS to work properly and Cloudflare did their thing and shut us down. I've since corrected this issue on Cloudflare and we should be good to go.

    For future reference, we have a Handloadersbench Group on Facebook and that would be a good place to go to let us know the site is down and stay in contact with us while we work the issue out.

    I apologize for the inconvenience.

      I'm wondering how many of our folks were having withdrawls from the site being down 12+ hours! I'm still stewing myself over this whole debacle.

        I was online at the time it happened and at work. About 8 pm. So I spent the rest of the night taking notes from a load manual. I WAS working. Changed a part once and cutters a few times. Tough job but somebody has to do it.

          Took it as a leftest attact against the moral majority.

            Me, too. Was in the middle of a search and the site flipped me the bone. I don't do fb, and lost Poacher's email addy in a M$ crash last year, so had no way to flag a staffie. That said, I knew you guys would handle it, all I needed was patience to get my fix. Thanx, gents.

              Thanks, AlphaOmega, for taking such good care of us.

                Facebook is just another method for people to reach me should something go sideways. I'll be passing around my contact information to you Moderators so if anything happens in the future you can reach me directly.

                      From what I observed as of Wednesday, some of the DNS caches were still out of date. If you include the "www" in www.handloadersbench.com (or omit the "www" if you usually include it) it should be fine.

                          I'm at work, and it worked. Had to put the "www" in front of it. Thanks again!
