OK. So it would seem I somehow screwed something up in the DNS configuration when I set up the site on my server. Got help from the geeks at the host and they sound confident that this has now been resolved. (I asked them to explain it to me but have yet to get a response)

The recommendation is to logout of the forum, clear ALL history (yes, again) then re login to the forum. Should be the last time this is necessary except of course as a normal browser maintenance procedure that we all do on a regular basis.  Wink

Just got their response. It was nothing I did, phew. They took ownership of the problem. We got 'em by the you-know-whats if it continues.

Wait a minute...

I was greeted by "Not Found" again this morning.

So, problem still exists.

Dang!

I've been seeing that a lot, on both the Kindle and the PC.  You say clearing the history should resolve it?

Yes. Clear it all. Everything. It's the only way to insure there are no remnants of the old SnT site left in your History, Download, Search, Image Cache and Cookies.

Ha! Turns out it was just me seeing it.

Lesson learned. Sometimes it pays to make sure that clearing history actually includes absolutely EVERYTHING. One little tidbit left behind can cause all sorts of grief.

Not sure anyone else has seen the 404 Error over the past few day. I certainly have.

Chasing a solution for that at the moment. It will be resolved asap.
