[TRLog] BBS down
Thu, 18 Sep 1997 07:23:47 -0700 (PDT)
Some of you have complained about the BBS not working very well. I
think I now understand why.
This morning, I was trying to work the VK9 on 160, and often use the BBS
computer on the internet to connect to the megacluster. I was having
some very bad connections to my local ISP and finally hooked up a phone
to the line to listen to it.
It was VERY noisy - and had gotten to the point where it was not even
functioning (off hook even if I hand up). It appears there is water in
the line somewhere.
After I went back to bed - a car pulled up (this is at 4 AM). Turns
out the local sherrif had a call to investigate an incomplete 911
(emergency) call. I guess somehow the line dialed up 911.
So, I will call the phone company to get this resolved. I will leave the
BBS on in case it gets cleared up (I am out of town for the next 4 days).
Once this gets fixed, I hope those of you who were having problems will
be able to connect okay. I will make a post when it is resolved. Until
then, it will probably not be usable.
