I don't know, I haven't had that problem. :hmm: Are you making sure to go to www.thetradersden.org instead of just thetradersden.org? See if that makes a difference. If not, maybe delete the cookies from this site and then go to www.thetradersden.org and login and kinda start your cookies all over again.

edit: since it was a DoS attack on the DNS Servers, the thing we did to get the site back was change DNS servers for the time being. So, perhaps that is the cause? To be honest, I don't know too much about DNS stuff, but the little I know suggests that this may be the cause. If so, it should be temporary (you know, like how it only took STG a little while for the DNS to propagate! :lol: - joking!)

Got this from ABB Hittin' The Web
Excerpted from Baking: From My Home to Yours. Copyright 2006 by Dorie Greenspan.

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick plus 3 tablespoons (11 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon fleur de sel or 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into chips, or a generous 3/4 cup
store-bought mini chocolate chips

1. Sift the flour, cocoa and baking soda together.

2. Working with a stand mixer, preferably fitted with a paddle attachment, or
with a hand mixer in a large bowl, beat the butter on medium speed until soft
and creamy. Add both sugars, the salt and vanilla extract and beat for 2 minutes
more.

3. Turn off the mixer. Pour in the dry ingredients, drape a kitchen towel over
the stand mixer to protect yourself and your kitchen from flying flour and pulse
the mixer at low speed about 5 times, a second or two each time. Take a peek -
if there is still a lot of flour on the surface of the dough, pulse a couple of
times more; if not, remove the towel. Continuing at low speed, mix for about 30
seconds more, just until the flour disappears into the dough - for the best
texture, work the dough as little as possible once the flour is added, and don't
be concerned if the dough looks a little crumbly. Toss in the chocolate pieces
and mix only to incorporate.

4. Turn the dough out onto a work surface, gather it together and divide it in
half. Working with one half at a time, shape the dough into logs that are 1 1/2
inches in diameter. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate them for at
least 3 hours. (The dough can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up
to 2 months. If you've frozen the dough, you needn't defrost it before baking -
just slice the logs into cookies and bake the cookies 1 minute longer.)

Getting Ready to Bake:

5. Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line two
baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats.

6. Using a sharp thin knife, slice the logs into rounds that are 1/2 inch thick.
(The rounds are likely to crack as you're cutting them - don't be concerned,
just squeeze the bits back onto each cookie.) Arrange the rounds on the baking
sheets, leaving about 1 inch between them.

7. Bake the cookies one sheet at a time for 12 minutes - they won't look done,
nor will they be firm, but that's just the way they should be.

Transfer the baking sheet to a cooling rack and let the cookies rest until they
are only just warm, at which point you can serve them or let them reach room
temperature.

Makes about 36 cookies

Take care and know that you are loved,

Lana and Rowland

You know, when I first saw the thread title I was thinking "Hmmm, John wants us to sell TTD cookies instead of TTD t-shirts." And I pictured TTDers selling boxes of cookies (like Girl Scout cookies). Only instead of going door-to-door, we would sell them at concerts. :lol: Then I saw this was posted in Technobabble and I tried to put on my serious hat. :cool:

I just got the all clear to go back to the original domain name servers. Hopefully that will clear up the problem.

To clear the cache for firefox, go to Tools > Options > Advanced > Network tab and then under Cache, hit Clear Now (for the Mac Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network tab and then under Cache, hit Clear Now).

If you didn't notice it when I changed them the first time (when the site was already down), then I don't think you'll notice it now. I think DNS propagates faster now than it did during the STG days. :cool:

What is up with that and you? What is the bookmark url you use? On my mac, I bookmark www.thetradersden.org/forums/index.php and on my PC I bookmark www.thetradersden.org/index.php since I like to 'see' both index pages. They both load fine for me.

I think he's saying if your ISP's DNS servers haven't updated (been propogated to :) ) yet, you can go through Google like a DNS proxy, since their DNS servers probably update pretty fast and would have the correct DNS when some others have yet to update. Sorryfortherunonsentance
