I haven't been able to access Poopli or its forums since some time last night. Anyone else having trouble?

(IIRC, last time this happened it was a DNS propagation/cache issue, but I've flushed this machine's cache since then, and there's nothing I know of I can do about my provider's DNS.)

I can't get in either, Max. It started acting up last night and then wouldn't do anything. Can't get into the forums there either.

I've tried from different machines too - nothing, zip, nada.

Looks like IVSBase has staged a mutiny. It's their way or the highway now!

You can put the IP into the WiRNS ISN lookup and it should come back with the names of the ReplayTV's at that IP. That my help your detective work.

I reposted in IVSM forum. Thanks that explained some, but not all.
I know who it is, but not why.

Poopli is still down, although IVS seems to be working fine. Earlier, I did get the Poopli log-in screen, which seemed to work, but I never saw the list of shows.

It's 10:15 CST and I still can't get into Poopli. I have a request that I can't send because I can't get in!

Anybody out there with any ideas (or anybody to contact?

If you have your Poopli email with the show request, why don't you go ahead and send the show?

If you want to request a show put a request in the request forum here.

If you need to send one and you don't know who the person is or their ISN, then unfortunately, you'll just have to wait. Or you can post the Poopli username here and perhaps one of us has the ISN in our addy book.

It's down and it sux, but that's life and life is still good!

Nobody's heard anything regarding Poopli, AFAIK, across all the ReplayTV-related Forums.

Should we all now drop back to VCRs?

Or patiently wait until another alternative presents itself?

PostPosted: Mon Feb 13, 2006 12:13 am    Post subject: MPAA Conspiracy? Reply with quote

At the risk of sounding like a whack-job conspiracy theorist, could the MPAA have shut down Poopli? Most of the big BitTorrent sites are gone because of them, and I wondered why they let Poopli exist, especially when they forced Replay to drop IVS in the 5500 series.

OK, to address a couple of things:

Why does Poopli being down have ANYTHING to do with any of us going back to VCRs? That's a total non-sequitir if I ever heard one. Wow!


Second, I don't think the MPAA shut Poopli down. The site was working Friday night and gradually crashed. Web sites crash. They go down. I have a feeling this was more than just a server reboot. Possibly it was a drive failure or other piece of hardware.

Third, it happened on a weekend. Archie has a life and who knows what he was doing over this weekend. It's possible he was out of town, tied up or couldn't get the parts for the server. In a recent post on the Poopli forums Archie made the statement, "I can't ignore my Poop much longer." Perhaps he know something was about to go FUBAR and didn't have a chance to fix it before it went.

Let's all just relax and breathe deep...I'm sure it will be back in a short bit...

IT'S STILL DOWN

OH THE HORROR..THE HORROR

I am truly suprised by the lack of activity at the base, and Planet Replay show request!

Well, given that IVSBase is made up of casual senders and people who aren't the "givers" at Poopli, it doesn't surprise me. After all, people are probably scared to send and help out their fellow users as they may then incur the wrath of their masters.

As for the show request forum here - DEFINITELY surprised it's not more active. But then again, maybe people realized there's more to live than Poopli and IVS?

Something must have really gone FUBAR with the server.

Keep in mind too that I think Archie is out east somewhere. Given that some places saw 24 to 30 inches of snow this weekend, he could still be snowbound...

Yeah, that was a bit ridiculous. All of my Replays are still recording just fine. Poopli isn't what makes them work, just what makes them more useful.

Web sites go down? Since when?

I don't believe it was the MPAA, either, but I thought I'd make the point (it was half in jest, but the questions I asked were interesting ones, I thought).

Yes, all of those are possible. Of course, unless Poopli is his full-time job, I'd think getting it fixed on the weekend would be easier (unless his hosting site doesn't work weekends).

It's already been a "short bit". That's why I think people are somewhat worried. Besides, it gives us something to talk about now that we're not having to punch in IVS ids so much.

I tell you what - this makes me realize how addicted we all are to Poopli!

I'm just believing that Archie is away on a trip or busy with something and literally hasn't been able to get to it. I don't think he would have made some modifications/improvements just a week ago and then taken it down.

And if he was forced to remove it, I would have to believe that something would be put up - a simple text page saying so.

So, I'm led to believe that something major crashed and that he's having difficulty getting it re-started (as someone who does IT support for my company and has messed with server crashes and installs, I'm not surprised).

But the worst part is how I feel like I have nothing to do online. I was getting used to actually utilizing the bandwidth I pay for from my ISP! And now, it's like, Ho-Hum...what's IVS? If you look at how much of our Replay community is dedicated to what Poopli provides, it's amazing. It just makes me believe that we need some sort of redundant backup or server to Poopli (and I don't mean IVSBase).

What really scares me is that if it was a major disc crash or db crash that all our user ids and accounts are all gone.

What improvements were made? The Top 50? (That's OK, but I liked the Top 10 Most Requested Shows that used to be on the show requests page.)

So would I -- the MPAA usually likes to gloat about things like this (like the RIAA with Grokster). (IP address logging warning -- in case you're paranoid)

I don't know. We'd all get to start our Poopli points afresh.
