  •  That's pretty much what I've already said (0+ / 0-)

    in my post down below titled "They've moved the site." I'm asking what you see when you type into your browser's address box and hit enter. If you get the Sean Smith page, what shows up in the address box after the page finishes loading?

      I'm getting the new DNS too--it now resolves to, which is

      •  You're still seeing (0+ / 0-)

        the old IP, then. Do you also see the "under construction" page when you point your browser to

        •  No. (0+ / 0-)

          I used to, but it changed with this IP once the DNS propagated. This is the new one. Netcraft confirms. Or is there a 'new new' one now.

            The old page was the "under construction" page ( ) to which you would be redirected if you tried to go to The old IP address was

            The new page has, even this morning, the "STATEMENT FROM SEAN SMITH" page and belongs to IP address Enough time has passed now, I'm guessing, to allow full propagation of the DNS change after they moved the site, so that everybody should be seeing the Sean Smith page when they go to

            •  that's odd... (0+ / 0-)

              I was getting the "STATEMENT FROM SEAN SMITH" page before, but now I'm back to "This account is under construction" -- weird!

                Right now what I'm seeing is that goes to and shows you the Sean Smith page in the browser. However, still goes to and shows the under construction page in the browser. This happens in every browser I try and also with pings.

                It appears the new account is not automatically resolving the addition of www to the front of the domain, which is very odd.

                •  Maybe that's what was going on. (0+ / 0-)

                  Thank you for figuring that out--it sounds like someone got sloppy with the DNS change. However, I really am still seeing the old server here...

                  $ hostx
                  $ hostx
                  $ hostx

                    that by now the DNS change had fully propagated, since I seemed to be one of the last ones to get the Sean Smith page, but maybe that assumption was not correct.

                    I'm not familiar with this hostx thingie - what IP do you get if you ping

                      It switched around on me also.  Last night at 8 I was getting the "Lamont hacked me" page, then later in the night the hostcamp supsended page, back to Sean whining in the morning, and now back to the suspended.

                      My conclusion is that Joe decided to switch to GoDaddy, but Bush told him they were "evil-doers" so he switched back until Cheney arranges a hosting contract with Haliburton for him -- at taxpayer expense of course.

                        see the "I got hacked" page, which I didn't see until today.  Cleared my cache, switched browsers, but all day yesterday, I got the under construction page.  It wasn't until I went through a google proxy/translation page that I saw the "I got hacked" page, but now it shows up even without a proxy.  Somethings funny goings on...

                        Even their trolls suck. "Baaaaaaaam! Cradle Rock style."
