Lost my homepage. It used to be a pointless cluttering of the web, but it used to work. Alas, now it’s a handy way to bring up a 404 error.
Here’s me apologising in person:
Thing is, trying to fix it resulted in my completely losing this blog for a while. Essentially, my index file (I presume) was trying to direct to a sub-directory that to my knowledge has never existed. I tried deleting and replacing it, to no avail. Curiously, this happened in Firefox and not in Safari. I then started to wonder if Apple’s iWeb was to blame. To cut a long story less-long, I started mucking around with my DNS settings directly, despite this warning on my host’s site that seems written especially for me:
To make matters worse, when I realised that I had screwed things up, and put things back to the way they had been as far as I could remember, I faced the fact that deleting CNAMEs seems to have instant effect, whereby re-instating them takes hours. So although everything looked okay, no blog.
Finally, it reappeared, but at the time I was just thinking, ‘to hell with it, I obviously wasn’t meant to blog.’
I’m back, though, and aren’t you glad?
