Question Why was Mersenneforum offline yesterday?

Just curious. I tried to access it yesterday afternoon, and it wouldn't connect. That went on at least until bedtime. The error was a connection timeout. Was it solar activity causing it? The Sun has been pretty active recently.

All the symptoms suggest that mersenneforum.og dropped out of the DNS for a few hours.

What time zone are you in? I could connect yesterday, about 23 hours before making this post.

Did you try to investigate? I'd start with ping mersenneforum.org and if that worked OK try wget https://mersenneforum.org/ (that should show error messages if it fails).

If ping gets no response I'd then try traceroute mersenneforum.org (this assumes the DNS lookup worked).

Timeout doesn't sound like a missing DNS entry, that would probably get a message saying no such host. But a broken internet connection would probably produce a timeout.

"If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?"

If you cannot reach into the forest, do you know that your favorite tree still stands?

When the roads to the forest opened, it became apparent that the tree still stood just fine. It was the roads to the tree.

@chris2be8: EDT. The problem started before 2030 UTC and lasted at least until 0030 UTC last night. I didn't have any trouble with any other sites that I knew to still exist. Not sure when exactly the problem began and ended, just that I tried to access this site between those times.

If a man says something and no woman is around to hear it, is he still wrong?

Always. Until proven correct, which is rare.
