    I noticed that badmintonforum.com didn't work for a long time this morning, and I switched the URL I bookmarked to badmintoncentral.com and then it was fine. I just thought it was a DNS problem with the server I've been using and didn't think much more of it.

    It's working fine now it seems.

    sorry guys, the DNS server crashed for some unknown reason. as i have bf.com's IP cached on my desk machine, i didn't realize it until later. i have kicked it to life again this morning. (late afternoon GMT) sorry about that.

    DNS entries are cached geographically at your local DNS server (e.g. your ISP), and updates take a while to propogate. When the root DNS holding our entry goes down, DNS servers around the world don't lose BF's IP instantly. It just seemed that for some of us we lost the entry sooner.
