Apologies to commentors

Due to a technical cockup, I disabled the commenting yesterday or the day before. It’s now been sorted. Annoyingly, due to how I did it you may not have noticed that your comment wasn’t posted. I only spotted it myself when I when I was responding to a very old post and saw that the address bar went to a “…#incorrect-captcha…” page . Which, unfortunately, looked exactly like the normal page with the comment missing.

Thing is, I don’t use a CAPTCHA on this blog as I’m struggling to get a good one that works with the template.

On the positive side it meant no comment spam to deal with…

The other positive side was that the 10th was one of my highest viewed days in a long time and I spotted that people do seem to be making use of the old posts. However, there are links to the old format pages still on some web sites (with “.html” at the end of the addresses). I’ve just fixed my .htaccess file so anyone clicking on these should be redirected to the correct new page.

Yes, it’s gone midnight. Yes I’ve been working over 16 hours today. Yes, this is what I do to relax.

I’m a geek, deal with it! I’m currently a geek with one of the best office window views in the world, so it does have its benefits!

  1. Yeah, finally able to comment, it has been at least two days (before this one), since I tried it a couple of times. A well, it’s fixed now. How are you doing, are you staying there for winterseason, or just to get them going and then you’re off to the other side of the world? Anyhow, if you have time and are in the neighbourhood, my couch is free to surf on. Have fun!

  2. Most annoyed as I’ve had a lot of visitors the last 2-3 days. Ah, well. Sorted now.

    Just here for 6 weeks (fly home around Dec 20th) and then home for the silly season. Other plans on the Travel Planner to the left.

  3. Well, if you’re read the blog regularly you’d know I’m here sans camera as mine’s in for repair back home. And there are a ton of pictures of Chamonix if you check the related posts, tags and posts from my season here last year.

    That’s the thing with mountains. They’re amazing to look at and don’t change much year on year.
