Unicycling in New Zealand - new Web Pages?

Post by Orbach, Juli » Wed, 02 Jun 1999 04:00:00


Hi,

The New Zealand unicyclists used to have a number of excellent web pages.

Now my links to (1) the New Zealand Unicycling page, (2) the Uni-Grid page
and (3) Harold Jarvie's email address are no longer working.

Can someone (Harold, are you listening?) provide me with some new URLs?

Thanks

Julian Orbach

p.s. Wondering about my recent flood of silly questions? I am in the process
of updating the Been There, Done That page - one small part of the
http://www.unicycling.org Unicycling Home Page.

Found it myself on a Japanese unicycling site!

     I will continue to update the dorm.org addresses for as long as I can
     but
there is a sizable lag between my notification of a changed IP and The
actual DNS update which makes it seem that the server is  down (or you may
be redirected to a random site on the NZ ADSL)  If you use the bigfoot
address the lag should never be more than a minute or two.  Don't get me
wrong here the site is up 99% of the time with no problems.  The problem
is only when my machine is given a changed IP address.  I keep raving on
about this cause it really annoys me.  I'm sorry but I hate my telco.
There its out.

    Hi Julian

        I still exist and so do the pages.  I fact with a bit of luck the
        pages will
get a major face-lift soon.  I am still trying to sort the answer to the
DNS problems that have plagued me for the last year and taken the time I
would have rather put into the pages themselves.


                                   http://bigfoot.com/~hjarvie
                                   http://bigfoot.com/~nzja

         These web addresses should always work although they may not be
the addresses put into your browsers bookmarks.  If they don't work for
more than an hour please email me.  

         The long boring bit

       I joined an ADSL pilot about 18 months ago which was great... cheap

fast and I could run a server at home.  At six months Monolith went down
and stopped providing Dynamic DNS.  I found another provider who's service
was about 50% so I Signed up with dorm.org who I still use.  The last 3-4
month have seen the Telco has realised that people are running their own
servers and decided this is bad (ADSL is to cheap compared to the old
technology $99/mthADSL - $2000/mth DDS)  so they began degrading ASDL
mainly by forcing changes to the dynamic IP's which means that I am now
forced to look for a dynamic DNS provider that does genuine realtime
updates.  http://gnudip.cheapnet.net is currently my choice
      so the above bigfoot addresses point at jarvie.dyn.cheapnet.net

   ps if you are on ADSL with dynamic IP and have a Nokia M10 Modem I have
some perl scripts to collect the address and detect changes etc.

 and now I run around screaming and waving my arms
