I couldn't get on USGS about 8 hours ago.
I finally figured out they had changed their DNSKey, but my DNS server didn't have the new one. So I had to switch my DNS server from my ISP provided one to OpenDNS.
Works fine now.


Um... Lol.... So..... How do you do that? How can I change the server name?


What she said times two! Thanks Olivine.

Lol, I know, right? Turns out it wasn't difficult at all.

Basically, USGS has "changed" their internet address number and didn't leave a published forwarding address.


If you go here www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com..., you will see that the USGS site is up and running, just not viewable from your compy.

To fix this, I went to www.opendns.com,(there are many other DNS servers you could choose, such as Google's) clicked on 'home solutions', and followed the step-by-step instructions. (and I didn't register my e-mail account) It only took 3-4 minutes.
Then I flushed my dns cache on my hard drive (instructions at the above site) and on my browsers.
(btw: I reset the numbers on my router, but you may need to change them on your compy or server, depending on your personal set-up)
And you can always switch back to the original DNS numbers you were using (such as the numbers from your internet service provider)--In fact, I recommend writing them down before you enter the new ones.

Voila, back in Geological Survey heaven.


If you can live without USGS for a few days, from what I read last night while trying figure out what the heck went wrong, they will eventually publish the new key and it will fix itself on its on.

Just replying to myself to say the USGS feed was also down as I said and came back on at approx 14:40 so they were off line totally for just about 3 hours.

@Olivine: So this was all part of the US plan for INternet Domination and the "Kill Switch" then.



The Science and Technology Directorate of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsors the "DNSSEC Deployment Initiative". This initiative encourages "all sectors to voluntarily adopt security measures that will improve security of the Internet's naming infrastructure, as part of a global, cooperative effort that involves many nations and organizations in the public and private sectors." DHS also funds efforts to mature DNSSEC and get it deployed inside the U.S. federal government.

It was reported[53] that on March 30, 2007, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security proposed "to have the key to sign the DNS root zone solidly in the hands of the US government." However no U.S. Government officials were present in the meeting room and the comment that sparked the article was made by another party. DHS later commented[54][55] on why they believe others jumped to the false conclusion that the U.S. Government had made such a proposal: "The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is funding the development of a technical plan for implementing DNSSec, and last October distributed an initial draft of it to a long list of international experts for comments. The draft lays out a series of options for who could be the holder, or "operator," of the Root Zone Key, essentially boiling down to a governmental agency or a contractor. "Nowhere in the document do we make any proposal about the identity of the Root Key Operator," said Maughan, the cyber-security research and development manager for Homeland Security."

When I was in my late teens, I got a word a day vocabulary book thingy. I'm old now, but I still remember a few of them. Altruistic. There's a big one. Aesthetic. Boy, that one was harder to learn how to pronounce. Understanding the word is the easy part. The hard parts are using it in a grammically correct manner. (Was that mangled or not? who the hell knows?- or cares?) Pronounciation and spelling. I bet I misspelled Pro... I could just type this on a page that has automatic spellcheck. But. So. I was really impressed with myself as I learned new and rarely used words. Twenty years on, I still don't get to use them much when I'm talking to regular folk.

Most of the words were merely curious to me. But one word blew my world apart. When I read the word's definition, it was as if the impossible just became possible. I couldn't believe such a word existed.

Misanthropy. Up until that point, I didn't know such a thing was possible. You mean it is possible to hate mankind. Who would do such a thing? The Devil? Satan!!! No. This was too much. Why would anyone hate humans?

Well, I'm much older now. And the manical laugh I'm expressing at this moment, and the tears that come from chuckling a little too much, should tell the story. Anyone remember Clouseau's boss, Chief Inspector Charles Dreyfus? Well, that's the laugh.

I hate mankind in the same way the Chief hated Clouseau...
www.youtube.com...

I stopped there for a moment to breath and posted. So, now I have to edit because I didn't explain the reason behind my malevolence. That was another word from my word book thing. Thinking about it now, that book may have helped me stay sane. It allowed me ways to express my frustration in a somewhat productive manner.

Right, how does any of my outrage translate to earthquakes? Because I'm freakin' overheating and I can't take this (pure expletive) weather. (puterman, there were those north pole quakes near greenland and there was a low pressure system there. greenland had melted like a dairy queen ice cream alternative on a hot sidewalk because of a heat dome. well the dome got pushed away and then there were some quakes) This weather has melted my brain. The only way I survived the month of July without air conditioning was to use physics. Anyone in the past who has said, "bring it on" when talking about global warming should be forced by law to live a summer without air-conditioning. This hot weather is as a result of us- and we are driving the system faster and we are causing the earthquakes in Oklahoma- etc....

India blackout out because someone turned up the air-condition dial to 11.

We need gas and oil and coal to run our power plants. Because we need A/C. We need more A/C because we humans are burning more stuff and we "may"~ have bumped up the thermostat a bit. It's a vicious cycle. One I tried to escape. But you can't. Not really. Wait until you get the black out. We are drilling and drilling and Oklahoma is shaking.

They are lying to you. We are lying to ourselves. Our insatiable hunger for energy is making us do some not so logical things, and then we're lying to ourselves about the consequences.

Why do I hate mankind?
Because I'm old and cranky and someone keeps touching the damned thermostat thingy.

I appears earthquake clusters are random. Well, at least the question proves the fact that there are clusters. But don't believe for a second that any of the earthquakes in the United States of America are related in any way to each other. It's random. For shi shake. Random!? That's an answer and a catchy phrase used by school child humans these days. Random

like totally random...

You frackers. No, I know they're talking about the bigger clusters. And Blah blah blah.
I just think it isn't true. And it's a big thing to say for sure.
Hell, I could be wrong about the reason for the frackquakes. (copyrite TM 2012- crap ATS will own it- oh well, actually ATS is just the CIA anyway. Right? Whatever.

I know the studies about clusters are the big ones over the last few decades.
But I think all the reports that these "random" events, and the noteable increase in earthquakes in the U.S. is not random. They try to say there is no evidence that fracking is causing frackquakes and the clusters are unrelated and random. Or natural. This is 1984.

Listen to the language.

I never exborated on Lousiana. They are storing natural gas underground in salt domes. These are formations that have already been tapping and have been drained of the fossil fuel. Now there is space and air pockets to force natural gas back underground to store it for another day. There are bubbles and earth- scratch that- there are frackquakes in the swamps. Coincidence. Yup. Another random thing that happens all the time at regular intervals when you apply forces to somethinge else. You get something. But that something is related only to nothing.

I think you give humankind to much credit, for causing all this weather change and geological disruption.
Don't want to debate Climate Change here but isn't it more likely caused by;

1. 2012 Japan 9,0 quake, 16.5cm planet axis change due to a redistribution of its mass
2. 2004 Sumatra 9.0 earthquake, shifted Earth's "mean North Pole" by about 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) in the direction of 145 degrees east longitude link
3. Mt Pinatabo eruption 1991, The ash entered the stratosphere and covered the whole earth within 12 months. Global temperatures were reduced by 0.5 degree C the year after the eruption.link,
Tephra Volume: 1.1 ± 0.5 x 10x10x10x10x10x10x10x10x10x10 cubic metres released link
4. Eyjafjallajökull eruption 2010, Tephra Volume: > 1.4 x 10x10x10x10x10x10x10x10 cubic metres released link

So far I count around 17 x mag 4 to 5+ quakes in the last 10 hours!

If there's any 'good' news about this, is that all this activity might be helping to release tension, which might have resulted in a mightily overdue 7+ quake

greenland had melted like a dairy queen ice cream


Greenland did not melt. Don't believe the lies you read in the press. My Mrs collects the data from the research station on the Greenland icecap every single day and has been doing so for over a year now.

Generally the temperature at the station is around -20°C or so. On that occasion when NASA and media lied through their teeth about 95% of the Greenland icecap melting the temperature was -16°C. She got really excited because the temperature at the station reached 0°C one day, but it is summer so what the heck and it only lasted for one day.

See another take on it: Scientists shoot holes in latest NASA Greenland hysteria

NASA have an agenda and one cannot believe anything they say. They are just about the most discredited scientific organisation around these days.

Climate by the way is controlled by the Sun, as it has been since for ever and provably so. Global climate warming change disruption is NOT caused by CO2 despite what those suffering from Dioxycarbophobia may try and tell you.

Oxygen dihydride in vapour form has much more effect than the essential trace gas CO2.
 

That out of the way here is a not particularly significant quake which will interest 'Rainbows Jane' if no one else.


Quake ID: 20120614060500
Event Date: 2012-06-14T06:06:28.000Z
Latitude: 56.65400
Longitude: -5.17100
Magnitude: 1.4 ML
Depth 5.0km
Location: Ballachulish Highland


Source: BGS except that you won't find the quake there - at least it has not appeared yet.

This one popped out of the woodwork today when I was processing the RSS feed from BGS.

I wonder how much else gets missed in this way?

Haaa!
You went off topic. (jk- who can be worse than myself) I know NASA overreacted and there is a 150 year cycle of warming. I didn't jump on the story and believe it on one source. Fox news had a bunch of glaciologists explaining it. Nonetheless, Greenland is melting. Since I'm not a scientist I can use metaphor and exaggerate. However, I was really talking about was the weather and how it's relating to the earthquakes near Norway/Greenland. So, my specific point wasn't so much about the warming. It was about the weather, and whether or not, weather causes earthquakes. As we've observed, there have been earthquakes near Greenland when low pressure systems pass over the fault. This year should really highlight the correlation between weather and the fault because Greenland has been dominated by a dome of high pressure and warmer than normal temps. So, when the stubborn high pressure is displaced by the low, the stark contrast between high and low pressure should make it easy to see if there's a pattern. Knowing you are keeping an eye on it, I am now wondering if there is indeed a relationship between low pressure and earthquakes. I can't discuss global warming's cause with you anymore- I can't detach my emotions from the issue anymore. Let's just both agree the earth is warming and leave it at that. So, to stay on topic and talk about earthquakes, there is a question which arises from the rising temperatures and changing climate.

If weather can cause earthquakes, does a warming planet- one which will see more storms and energetic weather due to the heat and increased moisture in the atmosphere- does a hotter world lead to more earthquakes?

Or alternatively, if weather can cause earthquakes, does hotter climate and shifting weather patterns mean we may see earthquakes in areas that have been long quiet?



And Puterman, have you ever had a Diary Queen "Ice Cream"? I think my joke got lost in translation. It's a soft serve ice cream so to anyone have eaten this alternative to ice cream would know that nothing melts faster than a Diary Queen Ice Cream. Even if Greenland was sucked into the sun, it still wouldn't melt faster than a serve cone in your kid's hands. Half the ice cream goes on the kid's clothes and elsewhere. I just researched soft serve and found much of the ice cream is air. So, you are paying for something that is basically half nothing.
