is anyone flese noticing posts and threads disappearing, only to reappear several hours --- or days --- later?

i posted a new topic on this last night, but it seems to have disappeared -- :eek: :eek:

is it possible Cyberhound is developing its own black hole --- or that it's being overtaken by one?

or are the posts and topics not disappearing for anyone else? :blink: :blink:

edited to add: it won't let me modify the title (more evidence of a cosmological conspiracy), but it should say "Emerging *Black* Hole," not Blach --- although blach is a pretty good description of how i feel pre-coffee

There is indeed something wrong with the board.

PM's are also disappearing, only to reappear several hours later....

Heather changed to a new server and is aware of the "black hole" you are experiencing. According to Heather
You're actually accessing the boards on the old server (where they're closed) rather than the new server (where they're open), but you're doing it sporadically. This should stop in a day or so, and you'll only access them from the new host.[/b]
We will keep you updated on the situation. We appreciate your patience.

Maybe it had something to do with the planet Mercury's transit across the Sun a couple of days ago? From what I heard on the radio it will not happen again until 2016 so hopefully we're safe for the next 10 years. ;)

I was searching yesterday for a post that I had seen by Beverly Anne and had actually replied to and it was nowhere to be found. I came back on a couple of hours later and there it was. I thought I was losing my mind...glad to hear I'm not! :blink:

I've also come on and there haven't been any posts for hours and hours. I don't think its very often that Cyberhound doesn't receive ANY posts for hours at a time.

Glad to hear its being worked on. At least now we know its not us or something wrong with our computers.

I'm a web designer and am such a geek I knew what was happening. *ashamed*

When servers change, it's a nightmare.

It depends... You can lower the DNS time to live and refresh times to something like 10 minutes instead of the default 3600, so that a DNS record only gets cached at your ISP for 10 minutes before being queried again.
When the change of IP address is applied in the DNS server, it takes only ten minutes to propagate.

Now who's the geek ? :p

It happened WHILE I was on the board yesterday. I was reading the update on the x_mas cards and when I changed thread to read about something else, the board had changed :blink:

I tried several times last night but just got "the other" , reduced board. When I tried it just now, it is just fine :)


Can anyone of you computerwizards tell me/us ; IN PLAIN LANGUAGE, if or what we can do to stop this??

Is this going to happen for a long time??
