sorry about the outage!

Dear All,

Sorry about the outages over the last 24 hours; there was a DNS problem, but I think that's now resolved.  It was affecting email to me at the sarahlaughed.net domain as well. Email seems to be working now in all of my various domains, but if you find that email to me at sarahlaughed.net is bouncing, feel free to email me (dylan) at twodames.net . There may be some issues with permalinks (which would come into play with things like links to a specific post from other sites) and you may occasionally encounter a "You are being redirected" page over the next 24-48 hours, but then things should run smoothly. The only bookmark I would advise changing is that if you ordinarily come to this page via http://www.sarahlaughed.net/lectionary-blog.html , I would recommend changing your bookmark to http://www.sarahlaughed.net/lectionary/ . If you've emailed me anything at sarahlaughed.net over the last 24 hours and haven't gotten a reply from me, please feel free to send your message again.

Phew! Now back to writing my sermon for Sunday!

Hi. I haven't had much time to look around, but I'll be back. It looks interesting. I tried to post this a second ago but I got a "spam" message, apparently because I put the link to my site in the URL box above... you really shouldn't ask for a URL if you don't want them... kinda silly IMHO.

Hmmm... sorry if I sounded like a jerk earlier. I was a little miffed at innocently entering info requested on the comment form & getting accused of spamming... but it's not your fault. Great site, by the way.

Glad you like the site! The message about comment spam was automatically generated by TypePad, which powers this site, and I'm not sure what circumstances cause it to generate that message. I'll try to find out, as I really am interested in seeing the sites of people who comment here!

Blessings,

Dylan

If you type a valid URL in the URL box, it generates the SPAM message. If you type anything else in the box (the URL with spaces, for example), it generates an invalid URL message and asks for a correction. I'm not familiar with typepad but I would assume that there is an option somewhere to allow or disallow URL posting, and the default is probably set to disallow it. But for some silly reason, the default to disallow it still leaves the box there, prompting people to enter one. Hope you get it figured out... *smiles*

Hmmm okay it seems to allow some URLs but not others I think? Unless you got the problem fixed already and I didn't know it LOL.

Also if you don't give a URL, your name links to your email. If you do give a URL your name links to your URL.

I'm gonna test-link my main domain in the URL again... sorry for the repeated comments but I'm hoping that you can see something on your side that isn't visible to the public, that can help you figure out what's causing the problem *smile*

ADDED AT 'COMMENT SPAM' PAGE...

Nope, it seems to be arbitrarily disallowing some links, while allowing others. Above, I successfully posted the server link to my blog (http://www.xanga.com/building_a_mystery) but just now it wouldn't let me link directly to the domain (http:// buildingamystery. cjb. net). <-- And it made me put spaces in the URL here... apparently it is reading .net sites as SPAM, which is kinda bad because a huge percentage of blogs are on network systems that come up as .net domains.

Hope this helps... *smiles*

no idea what outages are, Dylan. But I like the new look.

Thanks, Maggi. "Outages" is just jargon for the site being down. There were a few periods of a couple of hours each in which visitors to the site got strange-looking nonsense or something cryptic about a "parked domain" instead of the blog.

One of the few bonuses of the technical difficulties was that I heard from a lot of people who rely on the site -- I felt very needed!

Posted by: Sarah Dylan Breuer | Feb 22, 2005 12:44:06 PM

parked domain! that's even better.
I depend on your site too - sometimes I nick bits of it for my homily; other times I just get a bit of inspiration here and then go off in another direction. Either way you are an indispensible read-of-the-week!

Did you ever get a solution to this as it won't let me put in http://absoblogginlutely.net either. Swine typepad.

Posted by: Andy | Jun 13, 2005 4:44:27 PM

Just to let you know that I contacted typepad and they fixed the problem.
