Test please

This is just a test, had this been a real emergency ...

Just kidding! But really, it might just be my ISP, but would anyone check this page for me since I'm having problems with it. I can get to the main page but none of their links to information will go through. Sorry to bother you, but could someone please go to this page and then try the connecting links.


Much appreciated!

@ I tried it out... The main page is pretty but nothing works !! Server errors allover the place.

Same here and one page was" forbidden"

Big blue screen,...lots of pretty photos and links...seems to work...maybe the server was temporarily offline or too busy. Works for me.

Thanks WebRNot!

Yeah, it is really a mess! The Panama Canal is supposed to be in the remediation process right now, so I'm thinking it may be affecting their entire system. Also, as I said earlier, there was no problem a week ago so I'm still wondering about that April 1 rollover.

Thanks again for that confirmation - guess we'll have to see how she looks tomorrow.

They managed to maintain the front page (somewhat), but the rest is toast. Did you try going to their links?

Yeah..front page - but the rest is server errors.

[Canal News] returns "Server Error This server has encountered an internal error which prevents it from fulfilling your request. The most likely cause is a misconfiguration. Please ask the administrator to look for messages in the server's error log."

[Maritime Operations] returns "an invalid or unrecognized response."

[Photo Gallery] works, but most of the thumbnails are broken.

Forget it.

Hasn't this turn over been in the works for about 20 years now? How hard is a little web site? Is everyone in the world taking stupid pills or something? I want a new planet.

Agreed. Recently reviewed a number of plans at InterTrans headquarters on Alpha Centauri Five, and it certainly looks like the Vogons are getting ready to complete that new interspace bypass, which will unfortunately require the removal of Earth (not "some earth" - the entire planet) from the right-of-way.

We should all have our towels ready, along with a copy of the "Hitchhiker's Guide", with its very useful message on the back in large, friendly letters:

"Don't Panic!"
