Could one of the moderators please check why our one and only Bj can't get past log-in. What would this forum be without Bj?

Harry,

I think Bob used up all his allotted posts. I guess 22000 is the maximum the system can handle.

The reason is because BJ's PC is not finding the redirect to the new forum address. On Sunday we switched to our new server and now have 10X the bandwidth. Nathan assures me it will auto-update. BJ sent me his password and I was able to log on to his account with it, Nathan had no trouble either. If it does not reset by morning Nathan will dig further.

If he his on a windows based PC have him go to a command prompt (click on Run off the Start/Windows button, and enter "cmd") and enter the following command:

ipconfig /flushdns

This will reset the DNS cache on his computer which may be enough to get him going again. If it is still not working then that likely means his Internet Provider's DNS servers haven't updated yet, but will likely happen very soon.

Hi Guys
Thanks
Looks like it's time for a new machine just to get on the forum after the upgrade nailed my other machine..I'm going to hold off for a bit maybe with luck they will get the error fix..
It's funny NOT it ran fine until the upgrade was put in place.. works on all the woodworking forums just not this one

If someone don't get this fixed soon, they may end up taking BJ to rehab for Router Forum withdrawal treatment.

Hey BJ, I think I know how to fix your problem. All of the binary bits (ones and zeroes) are clogged up in your old computer. To fix it, just carefully remove the motherboard from your computer and take it to your router table and route a few dadoes in the motherboard. This will provide a path for the clogged up bits to take and free up the logjam, allowing them to flow freely once again.
