|October 2||The Commission connected (with other Maryland State Agencies) with "networkMaryland", the public sector's broadband Internet initiative. This action required the WCC web IP Address to change effective October 1, 2003. The Internet's DNS (Domain Names Servers) can require up to 72 hours to update themselves and reflect this change, sometimes resultant in "Page Cannot be Displayed" errors when attempting to reach www.wcc.state.md.us, as the DNS server is attempting to connect to the previously assigned IP Address. Given that this is one of the Internet's routine functions, there should be no disruption in Internet connectivity after Monday, October 6th when most/all DNS servers have detected the change and updated their databases. Most users in the Central Maryland region were connecting via updated DNS and noticed no disruption. Our customers' patience through the transition is appreciated.|
