Anyone know what the problem at tlz is? No emails can be sent to its addresses ('too many hops'), and the site itself is redirected to an unfortunate place...

Just wondered if anyone knew anything.

Marcus.

Hmmm... Fox has shown that it cares for its fans by serving our hosts a C&D. So, for now, enjoy nothing. We are planning on rectifying this as soon as we can. I'll keep you posted if anything new comes up.

Heh... well, at least all these C&Ds we get shows that Fox really cares about us.   tongue

Fox sucks. Bigtime. Really.

Even if the show's bloody cancelled, they still want to cancel the fansites too. Argh.

We'll be back as soon as possible, though...

My backup email is leandrotlz@myrealbox.com, and Gort has his gort@gmx.net account. Just in case.

Read you alter.

Well that indeed just fucking sucks.  mad

Pardon my Anglo-Saxon.

Good luck with the rectifying though.
Just one question, this is not the first C&D you've got, why did this one shut ya down?  confused

Probably because this one was sent to the Hosting company, rather TLZ itself. Hosting companies are easily intimidated by shiny documents with lawyer names. The resent hoopla with Futurama Collectorama is a good example on this. Just a guess though.

This time it was sent to our host's bandwidth provider... so Fux's lawyers went a bit higher up than usual.

Anyway, things are being sorted out right now... and we'll be back shortly.

This is off the record, but I'm seriously thinking about either mailing FOX a bomb or taking down their website for a couple of days with the help of a few friends and our version of a "C&D", commonly known as a DoS attack. (Ever seen what kept happening to the RIAA website in the past few months?)

Nah, I'm just kidding; they're not worth the effort  tongue

New host / server. The good guys at SmooveNet could have us in a new server in about a week. Meanwhile... uh... we'll see.

Well, I sure I'm sorry to hear about this. It really makes you wonder if Fox knows that it has a bunch of lawyers that have nothing better to do than threaten people who are no threat to Fox.

It makes no sense. No sense at all.

Especially now that they've officially cancelled the show. Bastards.

Leela.com.ar should be back up in a little while, once the DNS records get updated. It'll be pointing to LeelaZone.com.ar, our alternative URL. We'll be putting some stuff there while we wait for the new server.

Expect to see guides for both "The 30% Iron Chef" and "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" upon TLZ's return.  smile

A C&D for TLZ? That was one of the biggest Futurama character sites we had? Thanks FOX, I guess you want to force us into visiting your cheap, run-down, Chuck-e-cheese's version of a site you call Futurama!

Why can they contact us but we can't contact them? It makes no sense.

Is there any chance you can make the site underground? You know, known only to certain fans like us? That may work in circumventing C&Ds if we vow not to spread lots of publicity about it.

Nah, Futurama sites should not have to hide away, we're here to keep the awareness of Futurama open to all. FOX may try and shut us up, but we should try our best to spring back every time.

Just a side note, why are there always a certain breed of pricks who deliberately abuse the comments systems like TLZ has right now. They come and inflict badly formed and spelt sentences (always the bloody case - them again it may be deliberate...) and call us names and laugh at us just to see if we hop up and down at them as a result.
They either seem 8 years old, or have the mental and humour capacity of an 8 year old.
But you always bloody get them.

OK, I've added some content to the site, but haven't yet updated the front page, because we're in the process of adding Newspro (at least that's what Leo told me last night). Anyway, if you go to the site, you'll see Recent Fan Art on the left menu, which will bring you to some artwork. I'll probably be adding some more content later on today.

As to Zed 85's comment about those morons... best not give them the time of day, mate.  big grin Keep posting there, though, and drown them out.

Thanks Gort. Putting any of mine on?  I resized myself this morning, that The Leela Zone was download (for a little while.)

Also, TFP is offline for a new design. So that's the Second and First living Fan Sites Download. Let's hope it doesn't happening to anymore.

Lee, hope your site's back up soon... we don't want any more being sunk, for whatever reason.

I'm putting up work that's new... not work that was previously on the site. The site will be back in full in about a week's time, when we switch servers, so any work that was on the site but isn't on it now, will be on display in all its glory in the near future. We're down, but not out; we'll be standing up before the count finishes.

Anyway, if any of our visitors have got some new work to add to TLZ, please send it our way and it'll go up.

Thanks for all your patience and support. Much appreciated.  smile

Read the last post from me, and you'll find this sentence: "The site will be back in full in about a week's time, when we switch servers, so any work that was on the site but isn't on it now, will be on display in all its glory in the near future."

Well, just in case any PEELers don't know but care, TLZ is now back properish. Some little things need fixing, but most of the old content can be found. You may end up getting directed to our temp site, but that won't be for long. If you type http://leelazone.com.ar into your browser, you'll end up in the right place.

Anyway, thanks for your patience on this matter. It took a little longer than  expected, but we're now back.  smile

Who forgives who for what? I don't think Marc has a problem with me nor do I have one with him.

Anyway, some time ago, I got bored of the Futurama chat IRC world; it was time to move on.

Awww... nice to be wanted, though.  tongue
