Three out of four aint bad!

If you recall, up until yesterday, there used to be four ways to access this site:

  1. http://bogieworks.blogs.com

  2. http://bogieworks.blogs.com/treppenwitz

  3. http://www.treppenwitz.com

  4. http://treppenwitz.com

Then I started messing about with things I oughtn't to have been messing about with, and the result was not pretty (to say the least).   As of last night I finally managed to get the first three of the four links above working properly again... and I have high hopes for the fourth in the next few days (but don't hold me to that).

At this point I'd like to ask that anyone who has this site bookmarked or blogrolled to please change your links to "http://www.treppenwitz.com" from whatever they may be now (make sure you use the 'www' or it won't work!). 

That way, no matter how badly I screw up... or where I may decide to take this site in the future (given my current frustration with the excruciatingly slow and stingy level of what they laughingly call 'customer service', by my host 'typepad', a move is likely to come sooner than later) you will not show up here one day and find treppenwitz has vanished.

So please go ahead and update your links.  I promise there will be a real post up later... and you wouldn't want to miss out, would you?

But your cute little icon of the shadow man in the hat went away.

It's the little things that we live for.

I was wondering what happened. glad that it's only a technical glitch.

Of course we wouldn't want to miss out. And, if you're considering switching, may I suggest wordpress.com? They'll give you a free account, and if you run into problems, I can help. Mine's self-hosted, and I suppose you could always go that route as well.

The missing favicon can be gotten back with just a little code change (and putting the favicon somewhere on your own virtual server, which you probably have. Zahava, respectively.).

Wordpress.com is a bad move, in case you didn't know Amanda, because Trep won't be able to display any scripted ads, scripts or whatever else he's currently displaying. Not just because Wordpress.com disable scripts, but their TOU don't allow advertising either. This would only be possible if he hosted a WP installation on his own server (which, depending on his level of expertise, would come with problems of its own).

Typepad really isn't a bad choice...
