As I have mentioned/bitched/ranted about previously, there is something wrong with this site.
And no, you wiseasses, I don’t mean that there is obviously something wrong with this site because its ME running it…..
…. I mean that there has been, for over 2 months now, something going on with this site that is preventing a large amount of you all from getting here.
When I first started getting emails from some people saying that they couldn’t get here anymore, I dismissed them as kooks. After all, only kooks come here, right?
But as the emails and Facebook messages continued to come in, I started to realize that maybe these people weren’t so kooky after all.
Being the Take Charge kind of stud that I am, at first I did what I always do when there is an immediate crisis. I pretended that it wasn’t happening and hoped it would just fix itself and go away.
I have tried speaking with my domain hosting company, who tell me that they don’t see anything wrong, and think it must be a Google thing.
I have tried posting on the Google Blogger forums, and the general consensus by the asshats who think hanging out in Google forums all day is cool is that they have never heard of such a problem, have no idea what it could be, and were generally NO help whatsoever.
Whatever it is, it’s an odd problem to be sure. Some of you are getting a PAGE CAN NOT BE DISPLAYED error when you try to come here. Some of you are getting a DNS Unresolved Hostname error. Some of you can come here, but are unable to leave a comment. Some of you can read me fine and dandy in your feed readers, but get any combination of the above errors when you actually try to come here.
And some of you can still get here with no problems whatsoever. My own work computer gives me the DNS error, but I can still get here fine from home.
I am officially stumped. Granted, thinking isn’t my strong suit. I’m really all looks and no brains.
But regardless, I have to do something, anything, to get us back on track here.
I am going to go to war ONE MORE TIME with my domain hosting company, because I really believe the issue is with them. I’ll likely do this sometime this week. In the meanwhile, if you ARE having trouble getting here, could you please email me at apedone at optonline dot net and tell me exactly what error you are getting (exact message, work computer or home computer, when exactly you get the error, etc)? I will try to compile any info you guys give me and pass it along.
Provided THAT gets me nowhere (which is likely), I am forced to start thinking about just creating a new blog, and importing all the content over to the new one, and trying to start over. My fear in THAT regard is that once I redirect SLYDESBLOG to the new site, I am going to start having the same problems.
If THAT happens, if you open your bedroom window just a crack, wherever you live, you will undoubtedly hear me screaming my bloody head off.
I hope it doesn’t come to me having to switch blogs. I’d lose all my followers, and I’m not sure how it would affect all you sexy things that subscribe to me in your feed readers.
But all those problems are secondary to fixing this issue once and for fucking all.
Does ANYBODY have ANY ideas? Im all ears (and biceps, of course).
