Getting Sumner Newscow back on your computer

Sumner Newscow note from publisherBy Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Saturday, Sumner Newscow and Newscow.net in Winfield crashed due to getting hacked by an unknown third source. We were out for 12 hours and returned Saturday evening. Since that point, however, several people are still logging on their computer and seeing a “Start Logic – this website is unavailable” page. Obviously if you are reading this, the problem has been solved for you. However, if you were having problems earlier this week or know of someone else who still can’t log onto our websites because of that message, here is what you need to do:

Your computer has a cache which is a component that stores data so that in future requests that data can serve you faster. So when we crashed Saturday and then rebooted, your web browser might have held on to the data of the previously crashed site. Some did, some didn’t.

In order to get Sumner Newscow back on your computer,  you must reboot a new page. There are several ways of doing this. One is to simply refresh the page again. One is to do a right-click and reload simultaneously. Another is to go to the search engine and “Google” or “Yahoo” and relink the site from the search engine. Eliminate your old bookmark. You can also switch browsers from say Internet Explorer to Firefox or Safari and Google Chrome or others. There are a lot of browsers out there to choose from.

Here is a website that can help you with emptying your cache: https://kb.iu.edu/data/ahic.html
