What about accessing your stuff through an anonymous proxy? That has saved me quite a few times when access through my server was nulled.


Here are a few to try.

As much as it's cool to keep stuff online, there's also peace of mind with copies on CD, flash drives, portable hard drives, etc. I'd cry for about two years if I lost all my music on iTunes. That's one of the first things I back-up. Shocked Crying or Very sad Shocked

I just had a brief momentary scare a few minutes ago, I tried to get into google myself and was unable to but once I restarted my computer it started running? Don't know what caused that?

This problem is isolated to some customers in the Cox service area in San Diego and is limited to google.com and a few other domains. The Cox people say they're "working on it", but don't have an estimated time frame. Frustrating!

Thanks for the links, Andre. The proxies worked to get us to Google, but they don't let you sign into an app like gmail. We ended up driving to a local restaurant with free wi-fi access.

Almost all of our data is on our HD with a weekly backup onto another HD. That HD is set aside in a very safe location. We use several Google aps however to plan the shows.



Here is the free WiFi spot we found. We pulled off important info, did some more show planning and are off and running!

fortunately, i didn't have to find a wifi spot for google yet (honestly, i don't even use wireless). i have experienced my (rented) servers down or the access provider down, but i cannot remember that google was ever not available.

poor guys! it is ironic too, that is someone else trying to prevent you from consistently/regularly providing a show. i really really appreciate your efforts to put up a show every week on monday. i it always great in life when you can rely on people (or what they do). thank you so much for that! have a nice weekend.

When I have problems like that at work, I remote desktop into my severs at home.

When I have that problem at home, I fire up my wireless cantenna, and see which neighbors aren't using the same ISP as me. (For those of you wondering, I've helped out a few of my neighbors getting their wireless networks setup and secured so I'm authorized to access.)

It's Sunday morning and our service provider has fixed the problem and we are able to access Google again.

The image below was what we saw when we went to their update page all day Saturday:



It's good to be back!

Hmmmm, looks like the WiFi spot of choice just might happen to be a Panera. MrsZ uses them as her office when away from the office on a regular basis!

Glad it's a temporary situation and you're back up and running!

mmmm Panera. Now I'm hungry. Thanks. Wink

Glad you're up and running again. I don't know if I could handle a Monday without Sonny and Sandy!
