    Publicus is our publishing system. Sort of like folks who use WordPress or Typepad for their blogs except it handles a bunch more stuff than those programs.

    Why it’s showing up in the URL instead of http://www.news-record.com, I can’t explain.

    Unfortunately, we received some bad addressing information from one of our vendors, and we’re scrambling to get our DNS provider to fix our zone; the redirect to bjnlb (the actual hostname of our load balancer) is temporary. Looks ugly, but it’s functional. Sorry for the confusion.

    I get the sense that folks at the N&R offices may not realize that some of the links are not working, and therefore, this may be more than just looking ugly. For example, when I click on this link: More multimedia, I get redirected to the home page. Just wanted to let you know in case that wasn’t happening in the offices. Thanks for being so attentive and prompt with replies.

    Naw, Sean, it’s what happens when you use vendors who aren’t local and don’t have to show up in town events. (sorry, I couldn’t help it).

    On a nicer note, this stuff happens. It’s the Internet. It’s an art PLUS a science. Everyone’s servers go down; all things break; DNS doesn’t resolve because it’s Tuesday; Network Solutions had problems earlier this week; Yahoo wouldn’t deliver email; Earthlink declared all their subscribers to be deceased.

    Give ‘em a break if they’re working hard. If it happens repeatedly and they’re non-responsive, get a new vendor.
