Www.cousinsuk.com ?? No Longer Exists ?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys ive been trying since yesterday to access cousins uk website but all i get is a time out error or that the domain name needs to be renewed by owner ?

 

Anyone else having problems accessing the cousins site ?

 

 

Surely they would have kept up to date with their web info ?

Hmm well at least i know im not going mad and my pc is having a fit, if others are having issues then i know its not my end. Hopefully the issue will resolve by monday as i need to order, i will give them a call to let them know there are issues.

No luck from my end either. They may well be having temporary server issues. Roy's WatchforumUK has had intermittent problems during the last few weeks - it does happen.

I'm getting a "pending renewal or deletion" notification dated 18/6/2015.

Maybe his domain got hacked like Dagaz did a few weeks ago. Lost his domain so had to get a new one.

Well it has come back up for me now, i have no idea what has caused the issues or even if cousins have been aware that it has been going on. I suppose i better order quick before it goes down again :)

Looks like they forgot to renew their domain name - happened to me before.

 

They obviously quickly renewed it but it takes time for global DNS to propagate and that is why some of you were seeing the site and others were seeing the Network Solutions parking page.

 

 

 

Domain Name: COUSINSUK.COM
Registrar: NETWORK SOLUTIONS, LLC.
Sponsoring Registrar IANA ID: 2
Whois Server: whois.networksolutions.com
Referral URL: http://networksolutions.com
Name Server: NS.RACKSPACE.COM
Name Server: NS2.RACKSPACE.COM
Status: clientTransferProhibited http://www.icann.org/epp#clientTransferProhibited
Updated Date: 21-jun-2015

 

What I don't understand is why they did not renew it for the full amount allowable - 10 years. Look - they only renewed it for one further year:

 

Expiration Date: 18-jun-2016

 

 

It's cheap as chips to renew domains these days - probably would have cost them about $80.

 

Watchrepairtalk.com won't be up for renewal until 2023 :P

    • gents, thanks for all the kinds words and likes.  Its nice getting the positive feedback, no one around here to show it to for other than a half glance and a 'that's nice dear' 
    • They are about the same. Got them today. Haven't tested yet but so far so good. 
    • I don’t want to burst your bubble and you asked for my view. Unless you have a lot of experience, it will be extremely hard to pull this off. It looks good on paper but to get it just right I don’t think it will work. Silver solder is quite soft and you will not have the space for the solder to have a solid grip. Why don’t you put it to the side and keep checking for a spare stem.  
    • Two springbars and a crown. The fault could the with the pendant tube instead. I can't tell what TAG will do but if it was my watch I would let it go and move on.
    • Price difference is not necessarily visual. I've done side-by-side comparison of a watch expert 2 and the 1000 and 1900. Casually with most comparisons they do really quite well it is not necessarily the visual things that make the difference. Witschi is a real company in existence in Switzerland. Some of the Chinese machines have the name WeiShi on them strangely enough it's not mentioned where their addresses is in their book. So they come from China warranty issues technical questions not going get any of that. In a professional machine you get everything spelled out additional functions greater ranges nicer microphone. These are expected to run every single day in a watch shop. There is better audio processing in a noisy environment the Chinese machines can have problems. Or the ability to listen to your watch versus the irritating beeping sound. Frequency mode  tells the beats per hour of the watch. Problem watches what does the timing machines do with them? The Chinese less intelligence so usually attempt to show you something where witschi decides that it will save you from the grief and not show you anything. But change the setting of the machine to rate only the machine is no longer trying to calculate amplitude & beat from something it can't you will usually get a display. Occasionally have to go to frequency mode if the machine just can't figure out what the timing is. Then extremes that really aren't important like extreme low amplitude. Chinese machines have a habit of not reading the right part of the waveform  display something that looks really nice visual the watch does not look nice witschi will go down the 70° which is definitely not a desirable amplitude.. This doesn't necessarily mean witschi was perfect with everything they do. The early days the Chinese would compare to the watch expert 2. In particular the display and they were right display isn't the best. Looks great except it's shiny everything reflects off of it try to photograph it very difficult usually get reflections off of all sorts of stuff. Even talked to another watchmaker he had to put pith wood under the machine to tip it at the right angle so they could see the display and not get the overhead lights. But that is no longer a problem they're all backlit now. So if you're a professional watchmaker you're probably going to have a witschi. Or if you have lots of money or perhaps a timing machine obsession then those things will influence you. But the Chinese timing machines have one feature extremely important for this group that is there affordable. So the cost of a timing machine is no longer an excuse as to why you don't have one.Then it's important to remember  there is not just for timing of the watch  there really nice diagnostic tool providing you grasp what they're showing.
