    widescreenadvocate.org is the new domain for Widescreen Advocate. I am sorry that we were offline for so long, but I have gotten no responses from the e-mails and phone calls I made to Eric. He is the only one that is able to change the DNS info. So I registered a new domain. It is now active. Please update your bookmarks, or links to the site.
    I have now fixed the News script. I will be updating other portions of the site later next week, with a new section to come soon!
    Thanks for your patience.

    How come you had to change the domain?

    It might just take some time for the DNS changes to propagate down to your ISP's DNS servers.

    Steve, I have already explained that Eric has not changed the DNS info to point to the new server, so I decided to purchase a new domain, in order to make the site available again.

    This domain is about a week old, and my host had the domain pointed at the wrong IP address on their network for several days, so your explanation in this case is not correct. Thanks for the explanation though.

    Josh, can you please post the IP of your main server so we can put it in our hosts file?

    My web host uses 2 servers for thier DNS, for redundancy. I am hosting 4 web sites on that IP, and my homepage is the main site. I don't know what the TTL is that your referring to. Hopefully the site will work for everyone pretty soon.

    John,
    I didn't fully understand your post the first time around. The IP address 66.227.81.214 is indeed the old address, so at the time you checked, is appears that the second nameserver had not been updated yet. It should be updated now. If anyone still has trouble accessing the site, please let me know.

    Same here.
    Can use 66.227.58.82 to access Joshua's Place, but can't access widescreenadvocate.org neither directly nor from the link on Joshua's Place
