This is May 22nd and the main site has gone again. Usual thing I suppose. Let’s call it a hiatus until later today. There’ll be a post at OoL at 10 a.m.
For those curious enough to have come to the failsafe site, yes, N.O. is down this Thursday, April 11th. For how long I don’t know. Working on it. Meanwhile, any new posts will go up at:
… until it’s resolved. Let’s give it half a day.
UPDATE: Main site is 80% back up so we return there for now and this site will go back to sleep.
Well, if you check the December 11th post, you’ll see I’ve been expecting the main site to go down any day and it finally has. My host has also gone down, which was also expected – there’ve been signs.
This would always be the N2 address should nourishingobscurity.com go down. I’ve just gone over all the functions, which are pretty weird after wordpressdotorg but it would be possible to post from here.
It’s also possible that in the new year, there might be a change in my circumstances and if so, then this would become magazine type blog and I might give the politics away, give or take the occasional comment.
We all have our online problems and mine fall into two categories:
1. Those affecting me alone, e.g. being shut out of my dashboard and
2. Those affecting friends and/or readers.
I just received an email from a friend declining my invitation to join me on Twitter. I never sent such an invitation, nor would I, via social media. It simply wasn’t me.
Therefore, someone has hacked my Twitter account and that follows on from Linked-In and Facebook or else these organizations have taken it upon themselves to do it – I don’t know. I am not in Linked-In – I was about four years ago but discontinued three years ago so anything from that source is also not me. Facebook I only use for the posts from NO and I don’t do any of the inanities such as asking someone to like me or poking or whatever it is they do. I sent out some presents to a few Facebook users on my blogrolls about two years ago.
I am registered with TJMK, EU Referendum and some other sites on the blogrolls because they require that but these are private sites. I’m in no forums.
About a year and a half ago, apparently someone using my name went round to blogs from my blogrolls and pretended to get into discussions, then trashed someone in the comments thread. Again, that was not me. My comments are pretty well known and often involve me copying and pasting a fragment of the post and then commenting on that. Most of my comments are one or two lines – occasionally more but you’d recognize my prose when I start ranting – it’s often acerbic but no more than that.
Never are my comments ad hominem, never. If that is done under my name, someone is using my name. Please check with me if anything of this nature occurs, before being offended.
Whenever posts on certain subjects go up, the site goes down. An interesting phenomenon and a completely coincidental one of course.
Site’s currently down and shall report when I know any more about it.
This is a temporary notice for Wednesday, February 1st. My main site nourishing obscurity is down – for how long I don’t know. As I have to go out this morning, I don’t know what state it will be in when it eventually comes back. The problem appears to be at server level as all sites I know with the provider are down.
As things change, I’ll update here or else just remove this notice.
08:45 – All right, matter seems to have been resolved again. As you were.
