    Could someone test this site for me? www.worldmathsday.com

    Is anyone else having difficulty getting the "hall of fame 09" on World Maths Day 09 to load from beind their school firewall? I just get the loading screen and can't login half the time.

    when I load it either at home or on a direct line here the page loads without any problems and I can login also.

    We're using ISA server 2006/Smartfilter

    Hi Jamman960,
    it sounds like you still need to allow access to the World Maths Day servers. The IP range you need to allow is 203.99.142.0 /24 (203.99.142.0 - 203.99.142.255). Please note that this is a separate IP range (and separate servers) to Mathletics, so if you are a school that uses Mathletics you will still need to allow access to the World Maths Day servers.

    If you are still having issues (or if anyone else has technical issues), please contact World Maths Day Tech Support, and we will assist you to resolve them:

    Email: techsupport@3plearning.com
    Phone (inside Australia): 02 9019 2888
    Phone (outside Australia): +612 9019 2888

    or please see the Technical Guide on the World Maths Day homepage for local contacts.

    Hi powdarrmonkey,
    the backend of World Maths Day 2009 is very different to that of 2008, and has been carefully designed to be able to handle the high load of users prior to, during, and after the event period. You can get more details on the technology and hardware (and compare it to last year's hardware) by clicking "Behind The Scenes" at the bottom of the World Maths Day homepage. World Maths Day 09

    I had heard this about it, and it's very good news. It's not so much WMD I dread; anything major that relies on our flaky proxy is baaaaad. (Note to self: build a new one very soon.)
