    Anybody know what's up with Weather Underground???

    Both the mobile site and main site are giving "This site is under construction" messages, at least from the Sprint and Time-Warner cable networks...

    Welcome to Weather Underground : Weather Underground

    Maybe they figured out that most weather happens above ground.

    It was my weather source; but its not like I needed one since everyday seems to be the same weather wise.

    Re: Anybody know what's up with Weather Underground???

    Hi

    On behalf of Weather Underground, apologies for the connection problems you have been experiencing.

    We have been up all night doing everything we can to resolve the problems.

    The problems were caused when someone at our domain name registrar inadvertently made a change to our domain name record. This essentially means that in the yellow pages of the Internet, they got our address wrong. Most people were left unable to the find our site and were instead presented with our registrar's default page.

    We've been working frantically here trying to do anything we could to minimize the damage. We've just received word that in about 2 hours most of the connectivity should be restored thanks to some quick work by our registrar. In the meantime if you're in contact with individuals who cannot access the site through the wunderground.com domain name, please let them know that they can still access the site throughweatherunderground.com.

    Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

    Kind regards

    Toby Skinner
    Director of Marketing

    Re: Anybody know what's up with Weather Underground???

    I'm surprised that this doesn't happen more often. One wrong entry in a DNS record, and you are invisible to the world. It then takes 24-48 hours for all of the domain name servers to find you again. Or more accurately, to pass your information to each other.

    That seems like a long time - it is if you are trying to conduct business - but it still fascinates me that you can register a domain and within less that 2 days anyone, on any computer in the world, can find you.

    I'm not so sure that's the case since I was just getting ready to post the same blog entry. Anyway, glad it's back up. I missed WuderMap.


    EDIT: Then again, I didn't notice the username to sig match. My apologies.
