Fantastic Fiction website

I cannot seem to access fantasticfiction.co.uk any more. Does anyone have insight on them? They have always been such an important resource for finding series information on authors. Plus just seeing bios etc. is great.

Snap but don't panic yet, it's not in the least unusual for sites to vanish for varying amounts of time... could be anything from servers down to reorganisation to DDoS attack... just try tomorrow...

I wondered that possibly with the new Calibre plugin capabilities if we had overwhelmed or annoyed them.

Just rechecked... server not available... are you sure that you got actual site rather than cached data?

This is bizzarre then because I cannot get access to the site from either a direct html or from a google lookup. The address I'm using is http://fantasticfiction.co.uk/

Just checked and it's fine for me. Perhaps a routing problem from your ISP? Try doing a "tracert" to it.

Weird... it'd be quite a routing problem as leep is in the US and I'm in the UK... and we're definitely not using the same ISP... still, no need to worry for a few days, these things usually fix themselves as far as we're concerned (though probably lots of work at the other end)...

US-based here, and no problems bringing up that link. I've never visited the site before, so it's not in my browser cache.

It's pretty common for a site to be connected to two "routing hosts", and if one of those (which you and leep end up at) is down, and the other (which I connect to) isn't, that would explain what's going on. This is my route to it:

Code:
...
  3    87 ms    90 ms     *     anchor-access-3-s2001.router.demon.net [194.217.23.1]
  4    89 ms    88 ms    90 ms  anchor-inside-3-g5-0-1.router.demon.net [194.159.161.66]
  5    89 ms    88 ms    90 ms  park-border-1-g1-0-0.router.demon.net [194.70.98.90]
  6    90 ms    89 ms     *     ge-6-18.car1.London2.Level3.net [212.187.160.125]
  7    98 ms    89 ms     *     ae-31-55.ebr1.London2.Level3.net [4.68.117.158]
  8    98 ms   100 ms   100 ms  ae-6-6.car1.Dublin3.Level3.net [4.69.148.53]
  9   101 ms   101 ms    99 ms  ae-7-7.car2.Dublin1.Level3.net [4.69.148.58]
 10     *        *        *     Request timed out.
 11     *        *        *     Request timed out.
 12   101 ms   101 ms    97 ms  178.236.0.85
 13   101 ms   102 ms   102 ms  server-216-137-57-230.dub2.cloudfront.net [216.137.57.230]

Trace complete.

Interesting. I'm ending up at a site called "cloudfront.net" in Dublin. You appear to be going somewhere completely different!

No, I'm afraid not. I'm sure it'll sort itself out in a few hours - these things generally do.

I end up at the "s145526024.websitehome.co.uk (87.106.28.209)" just like Leep... except that the site is still working just fine for me -- here in the eastern US.

I imagine it will sort itself out eventually. Probably some cached routing tables that haven't quite updated somewhere.
