Not being negative - but - there have also been several WINDOWS updates this week in preparation for the new 1809 O/S --- and Drivers for all kinds of things (from Graphics tablets to CPUs)
There have been all kinds of hiccups reported with software/apps
Continuing a journey of discovery as I grow cactus seeds and offsets, and discover all kinds of wonderful plants in Cactus Nurseries. Just love Echinopsis, Lithops, Aeoniums and Gymnocalycium .... and....and .... now discovering Rebutia (thought I'd never bother having lost one a winter ago) and Sulcorebutia and Aylostera .... from where did those Echinocereus plants arrive?

Interesting .... not!
This morning I can access all of the forum but News and Events. I get 502 Bad Gateway or the request to login ... according to which part of the box on which I attempt to click.


Edited a few minutes later....
Tony Roberts was added a post at roughly the time I tried to access. The software must lock the forum area when you post making it inaccessible. This would also explain why you can lose a post which you attempt to post if someone else is doing the same at the same time to that thread.

Everything was working for me today until I tried the link to the BCSS Events Calendar from the New & Events forum, then I got this

pressing cancel gives 401 error

If I take the home link from forum the main BCSS site remembers I am logged in and I can follow the menu to the events calendar

Ok yes there is an issue but not sure what it is yet.

I do have a selection of up to date browsers which are all fine, however on an out of date chrome at work brought up log in box that has been reported.... and just had a thought while typing this and managed to reproduce it on an up to date browser, its tied up with www.bcss.org.uk, could be some redirects missing following the move. Will go and have a poke round the server.

Mended that one Jim.

Any address that uses www.bcss.org.uk will cause the problem not sure why yet, could be a name server issue.

Just tried the link that failed and it worked, then check branch website that has link to main society page and that failed as it used www.bcss.org.uk - might be a lot of pages (and shortcuts on peoples devices) that now have this problem
