Re: URL Problem Possible Hack

What browser are you using?

I just had a similar incident yesterday with Firecalc: it was showing up under a Fidelity URL! I couldn't reproduce the error and chalked it up to my first Firefox glitch. But to have someone else mention a similar problem a day later has me wanting to check into this more.

Anyone else have odd redirections or mismatched bookmarks or URLs?

I'm using Netscape on a Mac. I thought it might be my browser or my machine so I logged out, rebooted and then did a search for the sight insteaad of using my bookmark, did the same thing.

Re: URL Problem Possible Hack

Could be a DNS problem on either the local machine or with your specific DNS server.

Re: URL Problem Possible Hack

When I saw Ottahere's initial post earlier today, I tried the site and got the same German language error message. Tried it a couple of hours later and it was fine.

Re: URL Problem Possible Hack

I am at work and my link always first takes me to the main board. It is not there. Check it out. I had to go on the Internet and put in "Dory" and found a discussion that took me to the board and I then bookmarked. (Does that make sense.) Anyway, the main entrance to the board is not there.

Re: URL Problem Possible Hack

Ginger, the Retire Early Home Page website is not Dory's entry portal to the discusssion board. It is a completely separate website which happens to have (or at least it once did) a link to this site.

Re: URL Problem Possible Hack

Oh, I was wondering what that was about.

Apparently intercst recently removed the link to this forum from http://retireearlyhomepage.com/ . He has his own forum there. dory36, did you pee in intercst's Wheaties lately? (Or maybe I did. )

The front static page here is http://early-retirement.org/ and still has a link to the forums.

Two different people. Two different sites. A fair bit of crossover traffic, though.

"Intercst cuts dory36's hawsers!"

I'll bet he would like a little traffic! Why not "cross-license"?

Dory: Put a pointer to intercst's web site on your front page! I recommend his whitepapers often enough that someone might want to go there and read more.

I found this board through his site. Can't we repay the compliment?

Ed

Re: URL Problem Possible Hack

We used to have a bunck of links to his site -- I don't recall dropping them, but must have done so -- probably overwrote a link instead of adding a new one by mistake.

I'll fix it.

Intercst is the godfather of all ERs, as far as I am concerned. I discovered the possibility of my own ER through his site.

[edit: I added the link back to the rotating headline at the top, and linked his site a couple of places and his ***** threads on the intro page.]

Re: URL Problem Possible Hack

There is still a sticky topic in Other Topics about REHP, and posters periodically link to one of the articles there. I guess it's good to have the link on the front page, too.
