  • Cygnus Media Busy?

    Anyone have any ideas why I simply cannot access Firehouse.com by typing it in my browser? I keep getting a message that says "Cygnus Media is experincing heavy use. Please try back later" (or something to that effect.) Somehow I managed to find my way to the fourms... I typed something in, hit a few more keys, and then asked my 6 year old to help me get to this site. ...I just hope I can find my way back to check this post. Even by getting here, I still cannot find my way to the Home Page without that message.

    Any help you can offer a technologically impaired individual would be greatly appreciated...I can no longer afford my son's consulting fee!

    Thanks

    No, getting on fine, no problems- maybe they don't like you?
    Nah, just kidding, I have been able to get on, but there have been some really slow periods. Especially loading some of the ad server pages.

      I got that message not too long ago, but then it seemed to fix itself and has not happened since that time.
      Do it because you love it, not because you love being seen doing it.

            Site was down briefly, and forums should be very fast....if not, please post here approximate time eastern if it was slow, your connection speed and ISP.

            Thanks

              Well...everything is better for now...have had no problems for several days.

              Josh...I agree things are slow around here...I myself have been working on a research paper and things have been stressful (I'm sure your Chief can empathize- as he is in the same boat)...so I haven't been on here lately. Well, the paper is done..for better or Worse...and I took a few days off for vacation...back to the grindstone!

                All of last night and this morning. I couldn't access it from firehouse.com BUT I could back door it by Googling firehouse forums. Getting to be a pain in the ***. It probably happens 50% of the time I try to access the site within the last month.

                            OK, we'll contact AOL. Some must have some very old page cached...www.firehouse.com and www.firehouse.com/index.html are the same thing...so...we'll see if they can adjust...assume you are using AOL's built in browser not IE separately?

                              Here's what AOL suggests:

                              You may not be able to load a specific Web page for any one of several reasons. After trying the first solution, check to see if you can access the Web page. If you are still unable to load the specific Web page, continue using the suggested solutions until the problem is fixed.

                              You may wish to print or save a copy of these instructions, as this page may not remain visible as you go through the suggested steps.

                              Solutions

                              * Verify the Web Address
                              * Reload the Web Page
                              * Run an AOL® Auto Fix
                              * Clear the Internet Explorer Cache and Rebuild the AOL® Adapter
                              * Verify the Web Page Has Not Moved

                              For Additional Support
                              Verify the Web Address

                              If the Web address is not typed in correctly, the Web browser will not load the correct Web page.

                              To verify the Web address:
                              Make sure that the Web address (or URL) that you typed exactly matches the address you were given. Check that the capitalization matches, all words are spelled correctly, and all punctuation, like dots (.) and slashes (/), are correctly placed. Remember, there are no spaces allowed in Web addresses. A proper Web address will look like www.aol.com.

                              Back to Top
                              Reload the Web Page

                              When there are temporary problems with the connection to a Web page, reloading the Web page will prompt your Web browser to request the page's information again and may allow the Web page to load properly. You can also wait and try again later.

                              To reload the Web page, click the Refresh button.

                              Back to Top
                              Run an AOL® Auto Fix

                              AOL can help you automatically fix many common problems or errors with AOL Auto Fixes. Your AOL® software comes bundled with advanced technology to make it easy to repair the most common errors that prevent you from getting the most out of your AOL® membership. Just start an Auto Fix to have the AOL® service automatically go through steps to repair your software and optimize your AOL® experience.

                              To run an AOL Auto Fix:
                              1. Go to AOL® Keyword: Fix It.
                              2. Find the solution to the issue that most resembles the one you are currently experiencing and click the Download One-click Fixes button.

                              3. Follow the simple instructions to complete the repairs.

                              The Auto Fix will:
                              1. Delete the temporary Internet files.
                              2. Rebuild the AOL® Adapter.
                              3. Repair Internet Explorer.

                              Back to Top
                              Clear the Internet Explorer Cache and Rebuild the AOL Adapter

                              When you browse the Web, graphics and text are downloaded to your computer. These files are known as Temporary Internet Files and are stored in the browser cache. Eventually these files may become damaged and cause pages to load incorrectly, or they may just build up and need to be cleared out. The AOL® software uses the AOL Adapter to access the Internet. Sometimes this adapter gets damaged and rebuilding it restores access to the Web.

                              Note: Depending on the number of stored files, clearing the cache may take a few minutes.

                              To clear the Internet Explorer cache and rebuild the AOL Adapter:
                              1. Close the AOL software.
                              2. Click the Start button, select Programs or All Programs, select America Online, then click AOL System Information.
                              3. Click the Utilities tab.
                              4. Click the Clear Browser Cache button or the Clear button, depending on which option you see.
                              5. Click the Uninstall AOL Adapter or Rebuild AOL Adapter button.
                              6. Click the OK button.
                              7. Click the Close button.
                              8. Restart the computer and launch the AOL software again. The AOL Adapter will rebuild automatically.
