Server Technical Difficulties

As some of you likely experienced last week, the zip files, survey results and Diaper Boy Drawings were not available for much of the time. This is because all of these materials are posted on my server, which resides separately from this web site and is supplemental to this site. For several weeks I was seeing outages caused by a faulty shitty router. Having replaced the router mid-week, I thought all the problems were behind me, but alas, the new router was not configured. I was clued in that something was amiss when I started getting several Error Reports and individual emails from people telling me that they could not access any of the aforementioned materials. Further evidence of a problem was marked by a significant decrease in the number of survey responses received this week, especially early in the week. So far the new router is doing its job and has kept the connection up and running.

What I would like to do, in order to save everyone the trouble and frustration of getting a 404/Not Found page, is to have some internal JavaScript code that could ping the IP of the server and then report its status on the page. Unfortunately I am not too well-versed in this area of web design/development, and my reliance on finding something via Google has netted me nothing useful. If anyone would be so kind as to share his expertise and to offer his suggestions/solutions I would be most grateful.

Have a good week, everyone. Stay happily and thickly diapered!
