What's up with Mojo THIS time? I have not been able to get in all day.

Must be you. I can access it without a problem.

Are you by any chance related to guybrushthedwar (http://www.lucasforums.com/member.php?s=&action=getinfo&userid=13669)?

I can get onto MixnMojo, but none of the hosted sites are working :(

I can't get in at ALL.

None of the hosted sites work for me either. It's been happening since New Year's.

What is going on here? I demand a permanent fix.

02-16-2004, 11:26 PM
And I demand your execution.

Seriously though, Mojo is fixed. If you can't access it, try looking for problems closer to home than barking out commands.

They're working at the moment though.

Edit: And now they're not. Intermittant, I say.

I've had no problems, Mojo loves me.

I have host site problems all the time but only for those with ???.mixnmojo.com domain names. Ones with their own Url work no problem.

02-19-2004, 02:18 AM
Same here. anything.mixnmojo.com doesn't work. At first, I thought it was like Alderaan: totally blown away.

My trouble started about a week ago. Around the same time as I updated/patched Win XP?

And it does not appear to be intermittant.

It's an excellent site. I just can't seem to get to it anymore. :(

02-19-2004, 04:52 AM
I've also been having the intermittent DNS problems everyone else is reporting.

It's all working at the moment, but who knows what tomorrow will bring.

maybe your Computer or Modem just sucks is it a MAc or linux?

Then thats your problem

I've actually been having the same problem, at work they all work at home none work. The solution is quite simple.

The reason the sites don't work is because they don't resolve to anything, you can easely update your own hosts file to make it correctly resolve.

On Win2k i have edited my hosts file (c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) and added the following lines: soundtracks.mixnmojo.com lucastones.mixnmojo.com quick.mixnmojo.com

Now you could just add any of subsites in stead of soundtracks or lucastones. I personally don't visit the other subsites so i dont have the other onces there but they all point to the same IP.

After you save your hosts file just do "ipconfig /renew" in your dosprompt.

The actually settings might be slightly diffrent per OS but thats how you basicly get it to work :)

I have a Mac.
However, that should not be a problem.

I want this matter fixed as well

02-20-2004, 07:20 PM
never mind that nasty uneducated comment I just like the way Dell's perform . I'v teid mac and I don't like the Os or the browser

02-21-2004, 12:52 PM
Am i on ignore or was my post just too hard? heh...

If you just follow my instructions the sites will all work again INSTANTLY, if you dont do anything you'll be suffering for unknown limits of time.

Your call i dont really care :)

02-21-2004, 01:09 PM
That's all well and good if you're not using a mac. And of course, because you are using a mac, this is now completely your fault.

Please ban Joshi for being a ****ER.
That nonsense is NOT going to get Mojo fixed. All of us should be able to acsess Mojo.

CaliMonk, I use a Mac and thus cannot do what you said.

I am going to delete this thread and start it anew if it is going to turn into a Computer Discrimination thread rather then a Get Mojo Fixed thread.

Oh, shut up.

He posted the solution, so you could at least pretend to be thankful. A quick search for "mac hosts" on Google turned up this (http://practice.chatserve.com/hosts.html) - maybe you could try using that page to help you make CaliMonk's fix work on your Mac.

02-22-2004, 04:56 AM
Oh, shut up.

Thirk, have I ever told you your my hero?

02-23-2004, 06:08 PM
Mine too.

But seriously, that was a joke, if you don't get the joke, then youíre obviously not as judiciously inclined as the rest of us. Again, another joke, in case you didnít get that one and request for me to be shot. Even if it was a flame, you canít request a ban for the following reasons:
1. Itís a mild flame
2. Everyone agrees (when saying everyone, I automatically exclude Mac users for obvious reasons) and
3. You have no credibility on this site because of your chosen computer system (it had to be said)

Oh, an obscenities like that aren't very nice, please remember, there are children reading this boardÖ

Öand they could flame you all the way to last week so donít even try it.

Remember, if you donít have anything nice to say, at least make your flames worth while, or else just SHUT THE **** UP!!!


Mr Joshi would like to make it known that this entire thread was in most part a joke and meant to be seen with a light sense of humour. If you do not currently own a sense of humour then Joshi can not accept responsibility for the undying and yet unliveable pain that one may or may not be suffering right now. Thank you for taking the time out of your pathetic life to read this thread, now if you would kindly turn off your computer and drown in a bag of crisps (or potato chips for you yanks) as is stated by your Nerdorama5.0 user manual. Have a nice afterlife, see you in hell.
