Technical problems ??

Unread post by Penfold » Sat Oct 19, 2013 2:24 am

Hi,
I've been trying to access the MHDL this morning and have been having problems; I get "Problem Loading Page" from my Firefox browser, and a Trojan Horse alert from my Avast! security software.......both happen whether I follow a link from Nitrateville or go via a search engine. Trouble at t'mill ????

I just gave it a try, and everything seems to be working for me. I use Safari rather than Firefox - perhaps it's a browser issue?

Thanks for the response; I tried Internet explorer too, same result.........Avast! is telling me that a virus called JS:HideMe-J [Trj] is the culprit....anyone else struggling to connect ???

Is anyone else having problems accessing the site today? I can get onto the main page, but the lantern search page isn't loading at all.

Hmm. I've tried IE, Chrome and Mozilla and can't get on for some reason.

I'm using Safari, and have not been able to access Lantern all day. http://mediahistoryproject.org" target="_blank is still fine, though.

I have contacted David, and they're working on it.

Thanks sm742, search has been out for me as well. Makes me realize just what a valuable resource this truly is. Sincerest gratitude to them's what make it possible.

I totally agree. A few years ago, we'd have been sitting in the bowels of a library or archive wading through microfische instead of putting a search term and getting what we want in seconds.

I've found that on Sundays the site seems to be down occasionally. I don't know if they do their maintenance then, or if it is just dumb luck.
