Ancient Faith Radio doesn't like me right now...
« on: March 10, 2012, 01:36:25 PM »
So, I'm at a friend's house and we're on his Mac Desktop. We've been playing Ancient Faith Radio all week, listening to music, podcasts, etc. without any problem. This morning, however, when I tried to go there, it kicked me to a random "You're the number blah-blah-blah prize winner!!" pop-up box like thing...but it wasn't a pop-up, it actually changed the URL from Ancient Faith to this other page and wouldn't let me skip to where I wanted to go. It kept bringing up this page EVERY time.

Then, I tried to use the history to get to another page on Ancient Faith (like the podcast listing, or even the page for a specific podcast) and it always gives me an "Internal Server Error."

I've never seen this happen before...ever. It's really weird. I just wanted to know if others can get to Ancient Faith without an issue, to determine if it's an internet problem or a computer problem. If it is a computer problem...anyone have any ideas what we can do to get to Ancient Faith? Any help is much appreciated!

Sounds like you may have a virus on the computer.
You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Given that it is a Mac, it is conceivable that it is your local DNS server that has been compromised. It is also possible the DNS server setting on the computer has been changed. You might want to try (temporarily) the google DNS server and see if the problem goes away. The instructions on how to do this are here:

If it were me, I would just contact my internet service provide to check if they are having problems and/or find out what the DNS server settings are suppose to be in System Preferences/Network and then check if it has changed.

AFR was acting oddly for me yesterday. It would not update podcasts and for a time, ancientfaith.com seemed down. It is working for me today, though.

Thanks for the responses, guys!

I checked it again today before trying anything you suggested...and it's working fine! Go figure.

AFR has been touch and go. Guess it helps send home the message about their needing your support.
