Can't Access WinWorld website

edited July 2004 in News & Announcements
I can't access the winworld website for some reason. What is going on? I have tried both addresses (the .vze one and the long one)

the site says it is locked


  • OK, LOCKED is what it says every once in a while when Verizon backs up the files on their webserver, it never stays more than 2 minutes or so... just try again in a minute and it will work...

    Hey, at least theyre making sure they have bakups! lol
  • OK I see whats happening, its NOT unlocking,..... this is getting out of hand.... I think its time for a new webhost for the main site. Let me talk to Q and DuffDude about moving the HTML filez to my server...
  • Thatll be a bit of a load with the forum and FTP.

    I could setup an NT4 box and use that as a dedicated server. For just HTML files.
  • We're probably going to run it from DuffDude, since he uploads at ~100KB/sec
  • sweet, I wanna kick my ISP's ass for reducing from 100K to 256K.
  • Hey FishNET, theres always my server, I can host it.
  • Umm... well I would offer to, but the ShellNet Technology Services Server situation isn't that great right now. Also, it'd be a shitload of uploading, which I can't do. Too bad I can't actually <b>use</b> my 100 Kb of upload power... oh well.

    Please, Verizon, come to my area!
  • FishNet, can you give me the link to Windows 95 Origional?

  • ... dows95.rar

    Sites back, if it happens again ill call verizon
  • Yes! Verizon DSL has come to my area! Thanks, V!

    Come November, we'll be switching to DSL!
  • But, what speed do they offer there? I know MrClean lives ~2 miles from me and only gets 786K, and I get 1500K
  • 768K is OK, I was 800K once and it did the job for me, now Im 3000K and it does the job and more!
  • Oh really, well lets not forget this:


    3mbps just means you hit 100GB faster!
  • I'd sort of have to disagree with that.

    If people are going to download 100 mb, they're going to download it whether it takes 3 minutes or 10 minutes.

    Of course, If you have a continus stream of unbeliveably heavy traffic with a lot of downloading, yes you'll reach that faster.

    It all depends on the volume and what you're serving.

    How would I find out what speed they offer by me?
  • Call em to see the speed....

    Also, 3mbps will get 100GB faster, therefore he'd hit his bandwidth limit MUCH faster than someone with lets say 1mbps
  • Hmph... I guess so. But wouldn't it only stand to reason that they'd be serving for a less amount of time at that speed. Ah whatever, not like it matters.
  • WinWorld has a new home on my server!
  • Fishy, My Darling!!!

    I LOVE U

    You made the WinWorld Site work - (At the moment I'm crying in happiness!)

    Thankyou, soooooooooooooo much!!!!
    PLEASE KEEP IT ON YOUR SERVER!!!!! All the downloads work and everything. I really want to keep it whereever it is!!!!

    Thankyou so much!!!

    P.S. Where did the OS\2 downloads go? Also, can u get OS\2 Warp 3 or Warp 4 on the site? I want to try them out!!
  • So the bottom line is that Verizon sucks?

  • Most likely, especially the whole... LOCKED thing... im gonna call and ask about BOTH problems..

    We can also conclude that people are wildly in love with Sir Fish.

    Better then hating him!

  • Without me and my hosting, this place would've been run out of some guys basement using freewebs!
  • Well, maybe not THAT...

    So, Verizons hosting is POOR, but their DSL "owns"?
