Dominik's answer is essentially right (Thanks Dominik!). Just to
add to that, I'd recommend replacing your Ifeffit\config\updater.ini
file with this:
next_checktime = next year
update_site = http://cars9.uchicago.edu/~ifeffit/updates/
timestamp = 1987654321.0
timeout_connect = 0.1
timeout_download = 0.1
timeout_test = 0.1
This will tell the updater to:
1. not look for updates again until 2032.
2. wait a year before trying again after that
3. take ~0.1 before deciding that the network is not alive and that
it should give up.
Sorry for the trouble, and hope that helps.
PS: Of course, there might be a new version out before 2032....
