What happened to that other board? (Main Board)

I'm referring Michael B's board.

Last few times I tried to access it, it said the URL cannot be reached. Is the board no longer up? :)

It requires javascript enabled to view, a terrible design.

Confirmed. I disabled JS and the site reverts to a one line warning: "You must enable javascript (and cookies) to use this site. Sadly, this isrequired to keep the crazies at bay."

You can do spam and small scale DDoS prevention totally at the server but it was probably easier to implement partially in the browser.

I'd rather eat shit than write my own forum software. Just seems like a thankless, Sisyphean task.

That could be although I have also tried without a VPN, same thing.

Maybe he did block me although I don't remember posting anything derogatory.

Oh well. Doubt if I'm missing anything worth reading anyway. :)

The "dev" URL cert expired. Use the base URL.

I went to the base URL and was routed to the dev one.

Speaking generally, it can take a while, even days, for a change in the DNS entry to propagate to all DNS servers around the world. Any time you suspect a problem with a domain name being mapped to an IP address, simply keep trying at intervals for the next couple of days and if that's all it is it will fix itself.

I think I'll wait a few days or maybe a week or two before I try again. I think I can do without that forum for awhile longer. :)

Clear your cookies for URLs based at that base domain? Or flush your DNS? I wouldn't expect his homebrew forum to be 100% perfect production ready but when I am developing a site and I change domain names slightly (like go from a subdomain to a primary domain) often the old subdomain URL hangs around.

This I have found is kind of a common issue with browsers. At least Firefox seems to do a bit of its own cacheing of URLs.

Same issue after clearing cookies and flushing DNS. I'll just wait a bit before trying again, not going to put anymore effort into accessing a forum that is full of morons. :)

Our morons require less effort to engage than the other brand of morons.
