Yet another simple (and free) tool to edit your hosts files: Localghost. tongue

Just want to add a link to ganbustein's recent post, as it will be easier to locate it from here (since this thread is a sticky while his seems to be sinking):

Accessing MacFixIt archive from Lion

As per ganbustein's other thread, the MFIF archive is still sometimes hard to access (despite the hosts file modification suggested above). Here is a link to the old Lounge for testing:

clearly the NSA's tapping into the database server is affecting its response time!

FYI I have started missing new posts because I shift-cmd-click new posts in a forum and tab through them. If one fails to load, there's no address to reload when I cancel and try to reload. And the forum sometimes marks the thread as read so I don't know which one I didn't get to see.

That sounds like it ought to be moved to the FTM Feedback Forum.

Can the search function possibly be fixed? This very confusing and many topics I'm trying to find are no longer there.

when trying to make a reply earlier today (#49405), about a minute or two after clicking POST I finally got:

Quote:
Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@finetunedmac.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


The post was made, but my browser never received the page reload.


(and again when I tried to make THIS post)

Just so you know:
This problem and similar issues — which are getting more and more frequent — are currently under discussion in the FineTunedMac Feedback forum under the thread "Back up and running!"
