This error occurs when the host is unknown. Check the host name, it seems you used a wrong host name.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

CompressBuf and DecompressBuf are GONE...

This is from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/943867/zlib-in-delphi-2009...

CompressBuf and DecompressBuf are GONE.
I also have a project that compiles just fine in D7, but fails to compile in D2010 because it can't find "CompressBuf" or "DecompressBuf".
A search using D7's very pleasant find command locates the routines at c:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi7\Source\Rtl\Common\ZLib.pas
But searching with D2010's (awkward separate) "Find in Files" command fails to locate CompressBuf or DecompressBuf anywhere.
It's very disturbing that upgrading the IDE causes routines used and needed in projects to disappear!

WSANO_DATA
11004  

Valid name, no data record of requested type.
The requested name is valid and was found in the database, but it does not have the correct associated data being resolved for. The usual example for this is a host name-to-address translation attempt (using gethostbyname or WSAAsyncGetHostByName) which uses the DNS (Domain Name Server). An MX record is returned but no A record—indicating the host itself exists, but is not directly reachable.
