Try this: http://d2302.tt32.wellbuiltnetworks.net

APS is here, you just can't get to it by the normal route.

For those of you going into withdrawal (I'm getting a bunch of e-mails).

Note that you may need to log in again, depending...

All right! Can get on APS. Thanks, Derek.

Oh, a question: Does that address always work for access to APS even when the normal address is functioning properly?

Yep.

Derek,

I can get over to APS on your link, and when I log in it says that I have, but in reality I'm not logged in. Any comment? Or is it the level of my computer security that is preventing a log in due to the fact it doesn't recognize the link as an accepted one? I hope the original problem is rectifiable soon. I'm having withdrawal symptoms.:uhoh: :p :D

You might need to tell your browser to accept cookies from that link, too. Sounds like the board can't remember you, because you're not storing the cookie.

Remember: http is a stateless protocol...

Works fine for me, gramps. Need to post that witty reply to my "talk to myself" thread? :p

The odd thing is, when I access APS via the new link, I cannot log-in. I have tried to do so using my customary name and password, and the board says it does not recognize my password. I tried the 'reset password' link, and it directs me to the original, now not-functioning, DNS location of APS.

So does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can log in?

See Derek's explaination above. If you can figure out how to get your browser to accept the cookie, let me know so I can do the same thing.

I added a backup DNS to the current two. That might make APS accessible under the old URL in a day or two.

Using both IE and Firefox, I navigated to the 'back-door' link of APS and made sure each browser was configured to accept any cookies from the site. I am still unable to log on in either browser.

Funny, I'm using IE and haven't had any problem logging onto APS.

Okay, the normal address is working right now.

I logged into APS after going through Derek's backdoor address. The site says I'm logged in. Now, without logging off, or closing my browser, I open a new window and navigate to APS by typing www.armedpolitesociety.com in the address bar. I reach APS that way, and it says I'm not logged in, even though my name appears in the 'users online' list. However, I'm still logged in through the other browser window, the one in which I went through the backdoor. Anyone know why that is happening?

Cookies are URL specific. You have two cookies for APS stored on your PC. One has been updated to reflect that you are logged in, the other one hasn't been. When you enter the site, it reads the cookie corresponding to the URL used to access the site. The state of the URL-specific cookie determines your logged in status. The system doesn't search the database to see if you are already online and bypass the login procedure. It's sort-of a safety precaution.

Okay, thanks for the quick explanation ( and quick response!) Mal.
