EDIT: Now fixed.
The site's been up and down a lot lately. It's not because the site is actually going down though. The name servers are.

Here's how you can bypass talking to the name servers.

XP/2K:
Start, Run
Enter this:
notepad c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts



Click ok.


This is what you should see:



Add these lines to the file:
69.57.128.30 www.dodgeintrepid.net
69.57.128.30 dodgeintrepid.net




Save the file.



Linux/BSD:
Edit you hosts file in /etc/hosts. Add those same lines.

OS X:
Open net info manager.
You'll need to do the "Click lock to make changes" dance at the bottom,
then select the "machines" directory.
Add one named www.dodgeintrepid.net, with the IP 69.57.128.30
Add another named dodgeintrepid.net, with that the IP 69.57.128.30


I don't remeber where the hosts file is located on 9x, but it shouldn't be hard to find with a simple file search. Same procedure though, just the file is in a different place.

Welcom CDN R/T. Its been very lonely here. I realized that being able to access this site is pointless if hardly anybody else can. I must have clicked the new posts tab 500 times in the past hour and everything has been the same. This must be a record:

ah here u are, hey thanks for the fix!!!

can u add in your post on: http://www.dodgeintrepidchat.net/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=82

that the drive name has to coincide w/ where u installed windows, i think that's where a lot of peoples problems are comming from.

there just copying and pasteing and that's why it's not working.

thanks sooooo very much tho
