    Sorry everyone, the server DNS binding and service crapped itself and would not restart. Leading to the site being down. It looks like there are still some resulting issues but should be up for most people now.

    If you still hear of people having issues, please let me know ASAP.

    Cheers
    Dan

    urrghh as suspected looks by and large to be an issue with DNS propagation on the telstra side. It appears they have not updated all of their cache records yet and this is why some people are having issues and others aren't unfortunately there isn't much I can do about it for now. Though I might ping telstra and see if I can prompt them to do something

    yeah its very very odd though. And using what's my DNS everywhere in the world is fine apart from the Australian DNS servers for optus and telstra.

    they may only do once or twice a day updates so it should hopefully fix fully soon.

    we are down by about 50 users at current access numbers.

    If you have friends having the issue, I have found the following fix will force a DNS change to an extent

    A fix for anyone still having issues access Silvertails.net

    Code:
    For smart phones:
    1) put your phone into Airplane or flight mode
    2) take it off flight mode
    3) Open your browser and go to the site
    
    For windows computers:
    1) go to start >> Run
    2) type in cmd and hit enter
    3) type in ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter
    
    
    (other OS's look at http://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html)

    This will clear your DNS cache and should reset it to the correct one and get you back up and running
