Hi there!

Does anyone know what happened to Lexicomm's VFTT trail report posting site?

Thanks!

Darren did not have time to keep up with the maintenance. So trail reports are now posted in Q&A section (http://www.lexicomm.com/whites/wwwboard/index.html).

There are a couple different things going on with VFTT:

1) As mentioned below, Darren stopped maintaining the "Trip Reports" section of the site (although the New England trail conditions section is still running).

2) It looks like his registration for the lexicomm.com domain has expired, making the site unreachable for most of us. I don't know if this is permanent or temporary, purposeful or inadvertent. I also haven't been able to get e-mails through to Darren because of this.

In any case, feel free to post your trip reports and/or trail conditions (not just for New England) here or in rec.backcountry.useful. If people are interested, I could set up dedicated sections for those types of posts.

To Dave: Lexicomm.com IP address?

During a previous DNS problem I had put his IP address (at that time 192.41.43.97) in my hosts file, then commented it out when DNS restarted. Now I have uncommented it again, and I cannot reach that host. So either he has changed his IP, or the host itself is not responding.

Re: To Dave: Lexicomm.com IP address?

Good thinking. 161.58.195.113 should work.

If you happen to get in touch with Darren and find out what the deal is, could you post an update here? Thanks.

I have his IP address in my hosts file, but my ISP does not, so I cannot get in touch with him :-(
