  • So what really happened to the HSM board?

    Was it just somekind of date malfunction or did Adrian screw it up?

    The forum went down and the date was not reset when it was brought back up.

      The server probably lost power and when it came back up it set the date to the BIOS default. The operating system uses this to determine the date for the application software such as the BBS.

      There is no excuse for this. My servers went down for a short while this past weekend because of a power failure. They restart automatically and restart all applications too. Before they do that they check the time and date automatically with NIST and once every hour after that so the time is always correct to the second. The software is free and so is the service. The capability is integrated into Windows as well but must be properly configured, once only.

      As I said, no excuse.

          Russ,

          It's all Adrain's fault! He posted this lame excuse on his forum "...a big tree took down a main power line in my neighborhood..." but we all know he just said that in order to bring attention to his "deed".

          Coincidence? Hmmmmm...you be the judge.

              I hate to admit it ,but ever since i have been taking apart and fixing my horizontal mill and playing with rewiring ect both forums have been going haywire.

              I am begining to think that my(English) mill probably had a deposit of Lucas electrical controls that have some how taken over the internet.

              I hate to think what is going to happen when i clean out the coolant tank and get the coolant pump going.

                  Figured it was my fault - that's usually a safe assumtion!

                    Simply a matter of major disturbances in the 'Machinist Forum Force' over the weekend.

                    Forum smoke has been reinstalled in both venues and are good to go now.

                    PM is now with new server, terrabytes of reserve smoke, hittin on all 12 cylinders !

                      I'm still suffering proxy server issues when trying to reach PM from within my employer's intranet. I can get it from home on ComCast (my ISP). When I hit PM from my desk here at work, I get the "Click lathe to enter" then a blank page. This must be what crack withdrawal is like.

                        LOL! Yeah they really need to do a better job sealing up electronic appliances. It doesnt take too long before all the smoke leaks out of them. I just let the smoke out of an old motor the other day...rats.

                            I thought some wisecracker posted a picture of a wrecked snowplow. Signed it Three Phase Light Bulb. I guess he just needed a few years time to correct and test the the design, and fix his truck.

                              RK, did you try the below cure ? Worked for me. 5 days after redirecting DNS my cable ISP was still bringing up the old server. Only way I could see PM on the new server was my dialup ISP, until I did the below.

                              ====================================
                              For those having DNS problems you can update your hosts file, located in WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC directory. Ad an entry that looks like this

                              207.158.22.61 www.practicalmachinist.com

                              This will take care of your DNS issues as your machine hits the local host file first
