    Ken Kifer site down?

    I was just on the site the other day... but today my service provider keeps spitting me back and saying "not found." May just be a DNS issue with my provider...

    Can anyone else reach it?

    Perhaps I just need to fix the DNS service in my routers.

    I show the link as http://www.kenkifer.com/

    Thanks

    I see that someone made a change on 03-12

    http://whois.domaintools.com/kenkifer.com

    My guess is that the nameservers arn't configured to point to 72.249.17.28

    Interesting it looks like Joe took over the domain,

    Send Joe a PM...he dealt with this once before.

    Joe will take care of it. He is dedicated to keeping Ken's site up and running.

    Sunday morning. Still down.

    I'm sue Joe will take care of it, but wouldn't it be a terrible thing to lose the site? It's not like I haven't read it a thousand times over, but it's like a great book. Just the knowledge that it's there to refer back to or for others to discover is reassuring. It'd be a shame to ever lose it.

    Use 72.249.17.28 goes right to it.

    Wow, I thought the site has been gone for years (since Ken was killed by a car, right?). I will happily check it again!

    It works, thanks... but the search engines don't find it that way.

    kenkifer.com works fine here. Sometimes it takes a DNS server a few days to recognize a server or ip change of a site. The search engines will cache it in a few days.
