    The unresponsive click bug is fixed

    As of 9:42PM EDT on the US East Coast, the eRacks ads are clickable without Javascript and can load the eRacks page http://eracks.com/products/storage-servers-nas/NAS50/ directly without having to copy-paste the link. Came up again, so I immediately tested it.

      There is no JS at all used within the eRacks script so that is what's expected and hasn't been changed at all since the start of the campaign.

        These guys have some interesting hardware

        I've been poking around their website after testing the ad, an interesting site for a tech-head like me. Most of their systems are well out of my price range, but as a system builder myself I get ideas from exactly this sort of material. I particularily liked seeing audio/video systems pre-built with UbuntuStudio installed and optimized for it. My guess is there will be plenty of people who are busy between their jobs and their band or video work and do not have the time to put 20 or more hours into building a custom system in their basement, nor the time I have to put into optimizing them myself.

        These are just the sort of "exotic" (for home users) working computers the gaming magazines rarely even speak of the existance of-even though they could not so much as mail out subscription notices without them.

          Maybe "bug" was slow response from my ISP

          I'm not on a landline, so I have to deal with very spotty and somewhat unreliable network access via a cellular hotspot. Not controlling the building I cannot set up a landline. Sounds like the code was fine and my ISP dropped the ball, simply not making the connection.

            I tried visiting their site, but their webserver doesn't give any HTML-responses, nginx does respond with redirects. So something is down on their end.
