URL for web page is changing

Post  Roger_Dodger on Sun May 22, 2016 1:09 pm

The web page URL for the server (not the game itself) is changing.

OLD URL: Web [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

NEW URL: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
LINK: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

All Users: Please give the new URL a try, if for no other reason, to be sure its working properly. This is a new host (as shown by the new URL suffix [.hopto.org]). If it works for you (or not, as the case may be), please come back here and report your results.

Links from older webpages that point to the old URL (like Wikia) won't work until changed by GM_ODA.

Many thanks,
Roger Dodger

Extra special THANK YOU to Roger_Dodger and 'Dan' who have generously provided our new web hosting! At long last the web page is back on the WWW and we'll soon be getting more players thanks to search engines (yea, loss of the web site really hurt our outreach efforts, but, we are back and we'll be looking forward to the new traffic that this will generate).

BLESS YOU FRIENDS ROGER AND DAN!!!

Damn! Its been working fine the last few nights. Checked it before bed last night (about 2AM), and loaded just fine. Checked again this morning, worked OK too. Now, not working.

The DNS keeps getting dropped, don't know why. Dan flew away to Kansas City for the next few days, so it will be down until he can re-set it.

Have patience, I'll keep working on it.

Friend Roger Dodger,
It's OK brother. MANY THANKS for both all the help, both you and Dan. I have been on the Internet a long time (since the late 80's) so I well understand there are times when things don't work to plan. NP.

KUDOS to you both - I'm sure we'll figure this out sooner or later.

BTW, do you run with a Uninterruptable Power Supply on the computer involved? on the modem and router it is connected to? If any of those loose power even briefly it might be the cause of the outage that causes the dynamic IP to be reissued.

For those who need access now, there is a web archive at:

I contacted my ISP this morning. The DYNAMIC IP address changes every 24-hours, hence the term 'DYNAMIC'. I can get a STATIC IP address (which would solve all the connection problems) for only $5.00/month, but I didn't really want to start shoveling money into something I consider a 'favor for a friend'.

The No-IP.com (free) service is supposed to 'follow' my Dynamic IP address without need of me re-assigning it every morning. If I'm understanding things correctly, folks get to me through my ISP by logging into the ISP's Static IP address, which is then routed to my Dynamic IP address. The ISP takes care of all the re-routing transparently, so I never see it (it just 'happens' Twisted Evil ) Ah, the 'magic' of the internet. Obviously, something isn't 'happening' correctly. I'll get Dan to take a look when he gets back from Kansas City in a few days. Why bother Dan with this? Well, most of this is still a mystery to me, even after all the years I have been using the Internet - I'm only a simple 'user', after all.

Yours
Roger Dodger

Friend Roger Dodger,
No problem brother. First swing at a technology is usually not an out of the ball-park hit. Relax, we'll sort it all out when Dan is back (no rush) meanwhile the archive is taking care of business.

KUDOS to you and Dan both. This is MUCH appreciated.
