Visiting the scoop.it domain via a tethered connection gives an HTTP ERROR 504
I've gotten a couple of inquires from some of the people who subscribe to my ScoopIt feeds about where I was, so I'm doing this final post.
I mostly update my ScoopIt topics when I'm traveling, and that (for me) means using a laptop with internet served via a tethered smartphone. Every since ScoopIt had that huge DoS attack which shut the service down, my T-Mobile tether has stopped serving ScoopIt domain pages.
The issue is with T-Mobile, but they are not dealing with it. I tried to get ScoopIt to take action, but they have refused. Bottom-line is this platform is no longer one I can easily use, so I've stopped using it.
Thanks to everyone for reading and for the excellent commentary over the years. Enjoy the interweaves!

My friend, Asil Ares contacted me and told me about the Fantasy Faire, and that she had gotten involved with it. She sent me a link, which I read, and was very impressed that it was a Relay For Life event.
I was so pleased that Sanctuary stepped up to sponsor one of the Fantasy Faire SIMs. If you're looking for a great combat SIM (they use the Community Combat System), check them out!
