The Elgin Pocketwatch Serial Numbers Lookup Page

Reports of the page's demise are greatly exaggerated.

There was an interruption in domain name resolution overnight for my Elgin movement number lookup page (it didn't take long for folks to notice either).  The name resolution is via dyndns.com, and for some reason the host was dropped.  I set it again, but I also added a "home" host to my real domain at elgintime.com.  Now this URL work also:

http://home.elgintime.com:8080/elgintime/SnumLookup

This nicer looking URL is not at the mercy of dyndns.com, but it remains at the mercy of the ISP.  If the IP address changes, I have to update the DNS configuration.
