I thought it might be an idea to have a thread handy when our companion boards have technical difficulties so their members can pop in for information if they wish. The Outer Banks has one and it wouldn't hurt to have one here too.
What prompted my thought was that I couldn't get into The Hall of Fire today and was uncertain if it was just a problem with my own comp or a more general one.

Good idea. :)

I can't get into HoF, either. Instead I get a pop up box asking me to save the page's file. :suspicious:

I'm having a problem today, too. When I try to go to Hall of Fire today, a small file download window pops up and asks,
"Do you want to save this file, or find a program online to open it?"

Name: index.php
Type: Unknown File Type, 14.3 KB
From: thehalloffire.net

Then it has buttons for "find" "save" and "cancel"

And then it has a warning that the file could be harmful.

I cleared cookies, and tried getting onto the site different ways, but the same thing pops up each time.

I saved the file once. I suppose my computer will melt down in a little while. :blackeye:

I can't access the site at all from work, but it sounds to me like it's not recognizing the php engine. Which is weird, because we're on the same server, and not experiencing the same problem.

Whatever you do, don't associate the php file with something like firefox.
It will open endless amounts of tabs. :bang:

:( I hope they figure it out soon.

In the meantime, we'd better tidy this place up a bit. <brushes crumbs off the coffee table>

Tea, anyone? :Wooper:

:hug:

We do have tea and chocolate here, too.

But also beer for those who prefer something stronger.

We also have Cointreau Truffles!

Truffes au Cointreau
INGREDIENTS:

* 1/2 cup heavy cream
* 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
* 9 oz. chopped, semi-sweet chocolate
* 3 Tablespoons Cointreau

* For dipping:
* 6 oz. unsweetend chocolate squares for dipping
* 6 oz. chopped chocolate, for rolling

PREPARATION:
1. Mix the cream and butter together in a saucepan. Place over medium heat and bring to a full boil. Turn off heat.

2. Add 9 ounces of the chopped chocolate, and gently swirl the pan. Do not stir. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.

3. After 5 minutes, stir in the Cointreau slowly to combine.

4. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and refrigerate for 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes. In the meantime, line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift the chocolate that will be used for rolling. This eliminates the powdery residue.

5. After 45 minutes, the mixture will start to thicken quickly, keep refrigerated another 11 to 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.

6. Form the mixture into 1-inch balls and and place on the prepared sheets.

7. Chill until firm, about 10-15 minutes. While the balls are chilling, melt the remaining 6 ounces of chocolate in double boiler. After it is completely melted, allow to cool slightly before continuing. Warning: melt over very low heat, and do not let any water get into the chocolate! If even a single drop of water gets into the chocolate it will seize up and won't work for dipping.

8. Place sifted, chopped chocolate in small bowl. Remove the balls from the refrigerator. Using one hand, dip the balls into the melted chocolate. Roll it around in your hand, allow the excess to drip back into the bowl. Place the truffle in the chopped chocolate. With your clean hand, cover the truffle with chocolate.

9. Lift it out and place on the baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining truffles. Place back in the refrigerator for 5-8 minutes to set.

To store:

May be stored up to one week in an airtight container.

Please don't mention beer for at least a week please.

I said please twice but I'm not too proud to grovel.

So, seriously, do the PTB at HoF need us to do anything to help them resolve this? Like contact someone? I think Voronwe is out of town, right?

Let us know.

*fixes Holby with a manic grin, making him uncomfortable*

Is Voronwë the only admin at HoF?

Somebody with cPanel access needs to send an urgent support ticket to mxhub.

I think Prim probably has access to that and perhaps Whistler and Cerin as well. What if they can't access the cPanel? (Does that ever happen? :Q )
