Heck I'm in Belfast Northern Ireland and I had no problems! It went right to it with no delay. Sorry you are having so much trouble, someone doesn't like you or your 'puter! Wink Just kidding, you have to have either an ISP or OS problem, check everything cause you're missing a great site!

"you have to have either an ISP or OS problem, check everything cause you're missing a great site!"


Problem is I don't know what to do!  I don't know what I'm looking for that would indicate to me what is the problem.  I'll have to wait until my computer programing children are available around Christmas time. 

This is the only site (Gumpys) that I have ever had this happen to, whatever that is worth??

Thanks for all your help.

I have confirmation from two of the members on this board that Gumpydog.com is back up and running for those that were having problems accessing it. It seems maybe a new firewall was causing some issues, but that seems to have been resolved.

Please email me if you find you are still having troubles getting to it.

And who knows, maybe this winter I'll actually get some updates done. Actually, I nearly have a fresh water distribution page complete. Maybe before the end of the year....

Still working fine for me! I just accessed it using my LG Voyager while cruising west on I-40 at 80mphAnd let me tell you... While these advanced phones are cool, surfing orums and sites on them is a lot of work!!

songman....agreed!  sometimes i question how smart i am with my iphone....i will admit i have responded to posts on this board while driving....probably not the smartest thing in the world.  almost as dumb as switching drivers in the bus while going 80 down an interstate!!!!

on another note, gumpy's site works fine for me now. like craig said, once the firewall issue was fixed i had no issues.  i would assume that if i can access it, anyone else that had issues accessing it can too

I'll suggest hot swapping drivers at speed might be found safer than the distraction of electronic gizmos and phones while driving....

We need to apply for some funding, conduct some tests, write an inconclusive report and seek further funding to better understand our inconclusions....

who's in?

happy coaching!

I'm not that talented! I'll admit that I have sent text messages on my old phone while driving but since I got this one with the full QWERTY keyboard I am a two thumb typist! Don was driving while I was surfing.

But you can count me in on the hot swap test. I have  never done it but I have seen it a million times in the old days when I was traveling with Merle. It always impressed me!

Hot Swapping
I have never heard it called that, but the wife and I do it often in our MC7. I have thought about the safety of this manuver but it sure seems to work well and keeps us moving down the road.

Is this a common pratice or is it considered too risky?

its not risky if your good at it  Grin

what are your hot swap techniques?  what we do is find a long straightaway, the driver gets up and holds the wheel and lets go of the gas, and then the other person hops in from behind the seat and hits the gas, and then grabs the wheel.

however now we will have to rework this technique as i am building a wall behind the drivers seat

The aforementioned 'old days' didn't include cruise control either. They were done just as described. And they were also on an MC9. Having the wall and the shifter in the way does make it a little more exciting. The funny thing is that the guys never seemed in a hurry to do it. They took their time and it was very smooth.
