    Further data: timed-out multiple attempts to connect this morning at ~9:30 my time.

    Got there fairly quickly just now. I have been watching messages lately when visiting the site, and the delay looks to be 'searching for site name' -- once connected, it moves along OK unless I stay in one place for a long time, then I get the searching delay again. DNS?

    Edit: slow again this morning [tues 6/15] ~5:10am -- 'looking for www.ranch...' even got that switching between threads

    I couldn't get on many times from work, home and the PC at the club the past day. Three PC's, many aborted log-in's, very strange.

    Apparently Google ( I had to abandon all my principles to do this) sends you to a cache of the site when the DNS fails, explaining why it appears you get in using Google when the DNS is down.
    As the DNS failures are usually limited to a few minutes, using the cache can create the illusion of being on the site as the DNS is likely to be up when you make a post.

    The first line is the only one you need during this issue. It's caused by failure of the DDNS so your traceroute will fail at step one and say it's unable to resolve the host. I believe the hosting provider is aware of this and may or may not be interested in fixing it.

    It's not Greek, it's Geek. Network admins talk that stuff. Me, just barely.

    You can see the command "traceroute" given at top -- literally traces and shows the chain of connections to get from my desktop to the server at ranchero.us., and how quickly each of them acknowledges a 'ping'. Less time is better.

    When the chain is blocked for some reason, you may at least be able to see where it got to before it failed. Do it enough times and you can get a clue where the block is located. Internet Protocol ["IP"] is supposed to route a packet around a blockage in the middle of the chain -- obviously can't do that for the first or last ends.

    Uhmmm ... well, if you say so. But previous traceroute checks here have timed-out almost all the way there. I'll try it again when I can't get through next.

    I have seen the 'unable to resolve' message coming from the FF browser.

    Every once in a very blue moon will experience a couple of timeouts and then will get in. Didn't happen for me today from 0230 PDT (time adjusted for the convenience of folks on the left coast) through when bb posted his dissatisfaction with the site.

    Bill has talked to them a few times about it, not sure that there is much he can do except find a different hosting site which is probably more Rancherobuck$$$$$$$$$$ out of his pocket. Be patient, nothing earth/life changing happens here that can't wait another few seconds/minutes or so.
