Back pain

I was mucking around on my phone the other night and found I couldn't get into this site.

It didn't bother me that much because mobile phone reception in the area I was staying was, to put it mildly, fucking atrocious.  One minute, four bars, the next minute, no service provider.  The apparent loss of a site was easily explained by a shite reception.

But then I got a couple of mails.  Each of them politely pointed out that Rambles was dead, extinct and broken.


It wasn't the reception.

My problem was that my phone could view most websites [very badly] but I couldn't get into the engine room of Rambles for love nor money.

OK, I'm back.  And so is the site.  It was a fucking plugin that updated itself and fucked everything up.

Normal service will resume shortly.

    • You were quick enough to notice it was back though?  Admit it – you have been constantly pressing 'refresh' for the entire weekend.

      • okay I have your site in the bloglovin blog reading feed thingumajig I open the feed daily to see if there are any headlines and snippets that grab the eye and yours does….usually….

        can I have your autograph?

  1. I hope you had a wonderful time on vacation (holiday) and didn't think too much about this site but instead focused on not being home.


    • Brilliant thanks!  Complete and utter peace with no distractions.  I did check the site from time to time just to see if was still there.  And then the one time I didn't check, it wasn't.  Such is life?

    • Something funny there as it was a fault on the server [will I go into technicalities?  Nah!] so maybe I just fixed it in between your moving from iPad to desktop?

  2. I actually have a specially made "Site-is-Down-Due-to-Some-Fucking-Plugin-That-Updates-Itself-and-Kills-the-Site-in-the-Process" extension for Firefox that lets me view your site even though it wasn't really there.

    I also just bought Lamborghini.
