    Default What's going on with Jointed Rail website?

    For quite some time now, the JR site has either been totally down, or will allow a login then go down without letting a person log back out. Just tried it five minutes ago. Even a PING can't find it.

    Does anyone know what's happening here?

    Working fine here in Australia.
    May have been a temporary issue with IP.

    Just tried again. It was up for almost ten minutes, then crashed once more. Now won't respond to a PING.

    Seems to be bouncing up and down like a yo-yo. I'll keep at it.

    Works fine here.

    I recommend clearing your temporary files and trying again. The site may have been down temporarily and you caught it at the wrong moment, and now the bad link is cached.

    Any time I get a "bad link" message the first thing I do is clean the cache. Then I go to my other computer and try again. Every time, I get the same results. if the site is temporarily up, it get in, if not, I don't. What's bad is I might get lucky and log in to my account. When the site crashes, I'm left with no way to log back out. If it comes back soon enough, I might still be logged in, but not know it for some time. Not a good situation.

    At this very moment, the site is up.

    I had problems with the site on July 3rd,
    the home page would load but subsequent pages timed out. Tried two browsers on the same PC.
    I reported the issue to them, and around the same time I did an nslookup command against jointedrail.com using both my home server's DNS and also google's dns (8.8.8.8) shortly after that the site started working perfectly. I can't tell if the site was reset on their end or if the NSlookup somehow fixed/altered my local DNS cache.

    Sometimes, the "IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS" command works, clearing out bad links.

    It appears to have gone missing yet again.

    Were looking into it but so far are coming up with blanks on the issue some of you keep experiencing. We cant replicate it, our hosting company cant see a thing wrong and were not seeing the problem.

    Google brings back links for the main page, Freeware, Payware, Routes, Locomotives, Rolling Stock, and Club Car. All of them come up immediately for me using Chrome or Edge browsers. May be a local ISP thing?
