    I'm getting a 404 error when I try and go to your blog - and I haven't ever been there on this laptop or this connection.

    Thanks Margo - Kyle and I sort of figured out earlier that it's being caused by DNS propagation. I think so, anyway. I'll know not to change folder names on my web server ever again :rolleyes:

    [edit]

    There is something very strange going on with my email server (which is hosted on the same box as the web server) as well - for the past few days, I keep receiving emails, then they disappear from my inbox for hours and re-appear at random. It's getting extremely frustrating. I'm beginning to suspect that something malicious is going on...

    Have you tried contacting your host company? You might be hacked or something.

    I contacted them today to check on the email situation because it's still happening, but I'm now able to access the blog on my phone and from a couple of off-site machines that I remoted into from the workshop connection. It was still 404ing on the workshop Internet when I left at lunch time, will try it again when I get home. Everything is pointing towards KyleVDM having been right about the DNS at the moment.

    So, several days after changing the name of the folder on my web server, I can now access the blog again from my own connection at home and from every other connection I've tried. Lesson learned - never change folder names again :rolleyes:

    I don't believe this, it happened again! :( My host has been doing some sort of maintenance over the past couple of weeks and they've restored the old folder names, breaking the blog link again. Asdfghjkl :x

    I'm going to need a merge here.

    Work in progress and we have to iron out many issues. But at least it's a start. Seems like the rest of the team are writing news bits. I'm writing the big fun stuff. ;)

    Forgot this thread existed, so I guess I might as well throw my hat in the ring.

    Like bicycles? Like reading about bicycles? If you answered yes, then do I have the blog for you! Weekly feature is a rather long tale about one of my bikes accompanied by a whole host of pictures and very wordy descriptions of the various features and unique aspects of said bike. I also do reviews of parts and accessories, opinion pieces, and general informative musings, plus whatever the hell I feel like posting up. It's only a couple weeks old so content is thin on the ground, but I am trying to post something up at least a few times a week.

    If you're more into the single-serving side of things, then might I suggest my Twitter feed where I talk about bikes, music, and music about bikes. I also answer technical questions and give advice through there as well.
