  • As some wikian complains that they still see the april fools page instead of the old homepage, you can fix this by bypassing your browser's cache. This can be done by:

    • Internet Explorer: hold down the Ctrl key and click the Refresh or Reload button, or press Ctrl+F5.
    • Firefox: hold down the Shift key while clicking Reload; alternatively press Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl-Shift-R.
    • Opera users have to clear their caches through Tools→Preferences
    • Konqueror and Safari users can just click the Reload button.
    • Chrome: press Ctrl+F5 or Shift+F5

    • Try opening a command prompt and type ipconfig /flushdns

    • Try clearing your cache instead of atempting to bypass it. Why has no one thought of that? Clearing your cache is good thing to accasionally do anyway.

    • As a general rule of thumb, pulling down a new IP address and flushing your cache at least once a week is a good idea anyway.

      Go to start, type "cmd" into the shortbar, and then type "ipconfig /release", "ipconfig /renew", and "ipconfig /flushdns" in that order.

      Hell, if it's really that much of a chore, just use an automator to do it for you. You can literally just use keybindings, you don't need to set up mouse input at all.

    • Turning off the machine should also do it.

      Because for some reason you follow this post. At the top you will find a button that says "Following". You may click it to unfollow this post and stop getting notifications every time someone replies.

      The only reason I'm following this post is because I wanted to know when I got an answer. Every other random notification I've gotten earlier are from completely random posts that I am not following.

      Well it's not a bad idea, but no it is not a good idea either. Release + Renew will almost always give you the same IP, and what IP address you're on makes absolutely no difference anyway. It's sort of like the house number on your street, whether you're 55 or 57 it only matters that the mail is getting to you.

      Flushing the cache is fine but that's not what flushdns does, ipconfig /flushdns just flushes out the DNS records you've got stored and forces the computer to look them up again, a process which happens frequently.

      Neither of these will touch the cache of any of your browsers and so won't solve the problem, just Ctrl+F5 and you're good to go. I wouldn't even bother clearing the whole cache if you can avoid it, just Ctrl+F5 on any websites you get problems with.

      The flushdns solution was for the guy that couldnt get a new ip. Ctrl-F5 should work fine.
