Well, I'm getting showered with emails from regular FGIers, asking about FGI being gone and the domain absconded with.

I still get the DirectNIC page for all my FGI links and typing it in directly.  Huh?

No joy.


To the extent that getting FGI to load on one's monitor can be classed as "joy", that is.

Torpedo, was that a copy-n-paste from the location bar?  Didn't work for me, either.

Domain expired yesterday.  Depending on the TTL (time to live) settings the host information may be cached about the internet for any amount of time.  It's usually 24 hours though.  Those of you who can see the site are accessing cached DNS values and those of you who cannot are trying to hit it using current DNS values.

The registrar is DirectNIC.  We don't use them so I don't know their policies but if they're conforming with ICANN they'll hold the domain for some period of time (usually 30 days) and FGI can get it back for $100 or so.  This allows bozos to keep their valuable domains out of the hands of squatters.  I don't know the legalities of all of this.  I *think* registrars are required to conform but I wouldn't be the farm on that.

Seems there might be way too many Free Ganja Interludes over at Justin's digs these days.   Smoking

Yep it was, bookmarks, typing in the location bar, links all work for me.

I tried to register on activegolf, but it won't let me post in the forum. Angry

I guess we are banned.

Won't help those who can't see it and might break it for those who can.

If someone who can see it can resolve the IP from the cached values the site should be available under a http://100.101.102.103 URL.  But unless the links are relative throughout the site it won't get you anywhere. 

This ship is sinking and won't pop back to the surface until someone at FGI contacts the registrar and works through the process.

exactly.  if you can still see it, you shouldnt* !!  you're lucky your machine isn't 'up to date'  Cheesy

 the fix to view should be the server ip address

like you pasted below.   if anyone still want to view the site for whatever reason, they can post that into their hosts file
