View Full Version : Did something just happen on Dexter?

Our site was acting very odd. We had odd characters displaying, tables formed incorrectly.... communications errors in our VB....
seems to be better now.
Mostly curious what I saw. (and I saw wierd things in Nescape and IE)

whoa. now it is happening on aota.net. the images get all scrambled.
I'm gonna restart my machine :)

nope. it is still happening. I sometimes get a communications error, graphics load a skewwed, tables formed wrong. its a mess.
Much messier on my site than on aota.net
hmmmm. way messy in my UBB, but also elsewhere at times. very weird.
I just visited 4 different threads in your ubb and it all appeared normal for me, using Netscape 4.77 , 4.76 and 6.01.[nbsp][nbsp]Smileys, icons, in fact it all looked very normal to me.
BTW, love the way you incorporate the whole curve look throughout :)
Have a Good One

hmm. Perhaps it could be my dsl provider?
buy it is weird. Like the tables ot all messed up b ecause the text got screwed up and so the table didn't close, or an image didn't load. Graphics got all striated and wacked out. You should have seen the backround image.....!and some of my images do not load at all.
Nope. I just surfed on other sites...no problem.

definitely not my dsl provider: I just tried posting, and when I clicked "submit" the browser gave me an message something like this: "you are attempting to download the file "postings.cgi" would you like to save this file to disk?" (this was on aota.net's ubb....)
and aota's ubb is looking pretty odd to me too. Happens in IE but a little different symptoms.

Well, all seems better now.
I am a bit embarrassed by all my posts. But i was just trying to report what i was seeing.
Thanks Bob for the compliment. :D
What happened, anyway?

It's possible your ISP is using some type of caching system that went hay wire for a bit (or something local to your machine).
I run behind a squid cache quite a bit and have seen things like that happen from time to time.[nbsp][nbsp]I'm not technically minded enough to understand it all but usually a reset of the system on the ISP side solves it.[nbsp][nbsp]I would assume your provider or you had some sort of cache delivery going haywire.
As an aside...DEXTER went through a quick reset a few hours before you reported this issue but the two would have no relation whatsoever with each other.
It's really hard to say what happened on your end but obviously something went awry and fortunately whatever it was appears to be fixed :)
