I am feeling some emotions after receiving all those comments yesterday. It has been a very long and strange journey trying to discover why the traffic to this website dropped like a stone a few months ago. I assumed that it was because everyone was sick of me. I got really quite down about it. It didn’t help that I am a patchy poster at the best of times, so many of you reasonably thought I was taking a break or being lazy and thought nothing of it.
Tracking down the problem to a no mail-out thing and then isolating and fixing the issue has been a bore and I am grateful to Holly of GattoWeb for her assistance.
It’s not completely over, many of you are still finding that the newest post doesn’t appear on the website until 24 hours later and many who are subscribed and logged in are also being told they are not. It’s an ongoing battle. Please, if you have any anomalies like this, let me know. Either by leaving a comment or sending me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
One troubleshooting trick you might try is to track down the “manage subscriptions” option, delete everything you can find on there and then re-subscribe, but I am well aware that this is the kind of tech admin that quite rightly is unappealing and goes un-done.
I don’t actually have anything else for you today, so here is a link to a column I wrote for the iPaper yesterday, about boundaries.
