GTSS Working?

Are you reading Homeric Greek? Whether you are a total beginner or an advanced Homerist, here you can meet kindred spirits. Besides Homer, use this board for all things early Greek poetry.

Hi Bert,

Perhaps your "My Computer" (aka "Windows Explorer") is set to hide system files. Launch "My Computer" and do this:

Tools -> Folder Options
Click on the View tab
Under the entry "Hidden Files and Folders" click on the radio button (a circle) for "Show hidden files and folders."

Then try search again.....or you could simply use "My Computer" to navigate your way to the desired folder.

Cordially,

Paul

Paul and all:

The GTSS site appears to be working this morning.

Thanks for your help, Adelheid.

Back to work now

Here's an interesting post about a DNS-changing Trojan. What they're describing is a little different, since it sounds more like ISP name servers getting hijacked, but the image of the redirected/hijacked site is strangely similar to what got Paul's site.

http://blog.trendmicro.com/rogue-domain ... eposted5d/

(By the way, I'm still getting the "true" gtss when my host file has fix, and the hijacked one if I delete the fix).
The lists:
G'Oogle and the Internet Pharrchive - 1100 or so free Latin and Greek books.
DownLOEBables - Free books from the Loeb Classical Library

Can you browse there via 'My Computer'?
That's it. Back slash instead of forward slash.
But like you, it didn't have an effect.
I wanted it to work if for no other reason than to make the effort of this vandal useless.
Why is edonnelly's still work I wonder?

That's what I would like to know: after testing it yesterday (removing the hosts file entry and putting it back) there was no way I could get to Pauls site again.

Hi Everyone,

At my ISP's instruction, I updated the authoritative nameservers for greekgeek.org. This update should be effective within 24 hours (I think I did it around mid-day yesteday) Worldwide nameserver percolation should take not more than 48.

I am finding that I can now get to my website from several computers without any fix to HOSTS file.

I suspect that by Saturday afternoon, all will be cool. But please let me know if not.

I'm still not quite sure what really happened, nor do I know if my ISP has taken steps to prevent its re-occurence. But I will read article Ed posted.

Cordially,

Paul
