Re: iMessage: images fail to upload

Yeah, it worked for about 2 minutes and now we're back to the blank screen.  @MarkJFine has blamed all of this on CL.

Dropbox is a blank screen for me, and I have business files I need to get off there.

 

Did I hear someone say it may be a CL problem?

BTW, and I don't really know what this means, but I've pinged dropbox.com and it's normal, and traceroute is normal too, even though the dropbox site doesn't load.

Is routing arount CL feesable?  I don't recall where they are on the path.

 

They just seem to be an unrepentant problem child.

You can't route around a gateway's only pipe to the internet. Just as HN is our provider, CL is essentially the other end of the HN part.

 

The only way you get around them is by replacing them, and since they've basically bought up most of the nation's major high bandwidth carriers (Level3, Qwest, Embarq, Savvis) the likelihood of easily replacing them in any given area is slim.

Interestingly enough, I had no problem with Github this morning, but Akamai (and any MS updates) is dead in the water.

 

EDIT: Well, Github *was* working. Dead now.

Re: iMessage: images fail to upload

Things are clunky for me today, and the trinity (iCloud, G-Drive, and Dropbox) is MIA.  Yesterday Dropbox was in a teasing mood: it'd work for a few seconds, then go back to being unavailable. On and off, all afternoon.

Yep. It mocks you, just like Dropbox.

I must've snuck in while someone was updating the .htaccess file.
