Anyone getting this?
its working again. Now for the translink/transinfo page to come back.
What is happening to the Whirlpool forum?
has this happened before?
Its back up again just tried.
weird, translink is working fine again now too. oh well now I can go to whirlpool to whinge about it. hahahhhaa
happens all the time, but its shit hole so who cares
Agreed. Recently load times have been extremely lengthy so it's has been annoying me no end. Perhaps related to the AV software debarcle? Although I thought that was sortof all sorted now.
is it down now? or is it just me
Seems to be working ok for me right now.
I think maybe it was because whirlpool got 'slashdotted'....produced a heap of traffic and caused problems. (Just my guess).
'Just down for me' site wouldnt have worked in this case, as the server was producing pages, just not the correct one. AFAIK if the testing site gets some form of response from the server via http on port 80 it considers it 'up'

Huh? A site must be down because people winge there?
no, its on slashdot today, so its getting slashdotted.
He did not mention anything about being slashdotted.
the fact that a mere 400 people can bring it down shows just how sad the site is. its been terribly slow for quite a while now. its damn annoying, but the site hasn't been useful for a long time now. I should know my member number is in the low 4000's.

As usual it's the owner being tight about upgrading.
You see he wants his cake and he wants to eat it too..
Shame as its interface is quite clean. Too bad owner is dogmatic about upgrading/hosting...
Actually it's been up and down over the last few days, mainly because of the Conroy is a berk thing with his trying to shut up any criticism of his filter system.
don't mind him, he's just talking out of his arse.
