    The main site is running a WebSTAR web server on a MacOS machine... the TalkTennis boards are running Apache 1.3.29 on Mac OS X... it's possible the main server is down for upgrades, sometimes they take longer than expected.

    Craig

    P.S. Why they use Mac servers is beyond me... they must be really pro-mac. Am glad to see Apache running though.

    In my experience, MacOS makes a fine Web Serving platform, both with the Classic MacOS and OS X. FWIW, I have run production servers on the classic MacOS, Solaris and Linux, and use OS X for all my current Web development.

    You work with what works for you. :)

    Craig, you shouldn't make fun! It shows that they are not only doing great job, but are also full of optimism! There isn't better combination. ;)

    What is going on TW???? Last night the main site was down again for hours. Did the server crash again? That is not good. I was ordering last night then I got this error "unable to connect to host", and I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one ordering online last night. TW lost revenue during down time for sure.

    TW your IT guys should be fired!!!!!!!

    BTW...I thought Macs never crash?

    I second that. Sure, it's annoying for users, but all sites go down from time to time or experience problems that need to be ironed out. Overall, it seems to me they do an excellent job.
