Note to Readers Re: Technical Issues

A week or more after a major disruption in our hosting service, Bacon’s Rebellion continues to experience technical difficulties. I am hearing from many of you that when you call up the blog, you land on an out-of-date page and can find no way to find the current posts. The solution is simple: Click on the “Home” button.

In the meantime, we will continue to try to get to the root of the problem.

  1. This is happening not only on Windows machines but also chomebooks and android phones.

    It’s happening on machines that have never accessed BR before.

  2. As a one-step workaround, change the shortcut to https://www.baconsrebellion.com/wp/

  3. nope – here’s what you get:

    Bad Request
    Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
    Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

    Apache/2.4.43 (Ubuntu) Server at 127.0.0.1 Port 80

    • That error leads me to believe it’s being generated on the device you used to access this site. Two reasons: (1)ubuntu is often used as a desktop operating system (2) 127.0.0.1 is the loopback address and that message indicates that the request came in on 127.0.0.1 — not possible for a request that came over the internet.

  4. Hint – Remove your obsolete and syntactically challenged “There are currently no comments highlighted.” See if that helps.

    • a what?

      This just started…. a couple weeks ago… prior to that – for YEARS – no problem except when BR had some occasional issues… but then it got back to normal.

      • A content filter, aka “net nanny”…some people use them to filter objectionable content that they may not want their kids to see. Many businesses use them to filter objectionable content they don’t want their employees seeing at work.

        • 2 separate Wi FIs and 2 separate cellular networks – same problem.

          And I do not have this problem on other WordPress blogs like Power to the People.

          • I’m not seeing the problem here.

            What happens if on a Windows 10 box that’s having the problem you go to a command prompt and run this:

            nslookup baconsrebellion.com

            I get the following:

            C:\Users\Brian>nslookup baconsrebellion.com
            Server: router.lan
            Address: 10.10.10.1

    when I key baconsrebellion.com

    I get the web page but it’s an older post on budgeting

    when I copy the link of the header “baconsrebellion.com”

    I get this
    https://www.baconsrebellion.com/wp/

    and if I click this, I get:

    Bad Request

    nslookup baconsrebellion.com/wp
