Same problem here. It seems to be working on the QRZ site tho.  At least it has the correct date and it seems it is updating as it is only 15 to 20 minutes behind the current UTC time. 

 ???

Ok, they placed a comment on their , having server issues working on it, should be working otherwise they will fire GoDaddy and obtain a new one, they are serious about fixing this issue , have not had any issues in 3yrs, they are also unhappy about this . XYL was right again, she mentioned the servers when i first found the Gadget not operating on my desktop, really enjoy using it and learning more about propagation. 73s, AJ W5heh

I just noticed that, after having been blank for three or four days, my widget is back up now.  It must have just happened because when I looked at it earlier this morning, it was blank.

Basically it was server problems.  And I elected to migrate to a newer 4G server - which added to the down time.  The big problem was the migration changed the absolute path of the server, meaning I had to update every file - and as I had not touched the code in 4 years - well lets just say that was not fun!

All should be back up as of Sunday morning (25 may) and running, let me know of any future problems.  Lets hope it stays up as long as it did last time (more then 3 years)!

Sure do appreciate that AJ - there is no way, given the increased costs associated with all this, that I could keep it free for all to use that want to use it without help.  I don't like adds, or even pay for service.  Donations (by those that can afford it) are the best thing to keep it all going for free.
