Has anyone had trouble accessing the Hugh Wallis IGI site.:confused:

Steve.:)
Yes Steve,

Clicking on a link brings the message - the website cannot be found, so I guess the site is currently experiencing difficulties!

Oh don't we have to endure lots of obstacles, when trying to pursue our hobby?

:2fun: Josie

I sent an email to the Hugh Wallis site, this was the reply:
2 Aug 2011
I think we might be out of luck for a while since it seems the LDS have changed their site so as to break mine. Sorry

Hi all
Yet another update re. Hugh Wallis site
I have just sucessfully completed a search, with no link problems. :biggrin:
Hopefully it was just a glitch - just in case make the most of it as it may only be temporary (re. previous email)

I find it very ironic that people including some MPs get very upset when a newspaper uses a generic password to view texts on people's phones, yet subscribers to many forums are getting upset because one unauthorised hack (which is what the HW site amounts to) has been blocked by a site update.

When the IGI was first uploaded to the web the Church of Latter-day Saints asked that the public only accessed it through the front door as alternative access points compromised the load sharing software used by the site.
Load sharing software evens out the load any particular server has to enable the site to run efficiently.
Sites such as Hugh Wallis’ batch number site (useful as it was) effectively bypassed the load sharing.

If one wishes to use a batch number it is simple to enter it in the LDS site search engine rather than use the back-door method.
Cheers
Guy
