A few days ago, I was just talking to Spoz, and I told him to check out my blog to see what was up with me. He then asked what my blog address was, as he had tried this address, and it said “Requested URL could not be retrieved.”
I told him that it was the address, and he insisted that it didn’t work. So then I tested it out just to make sure the site hadn’t gone down or something, and it worked for me. When I told him this, he said that was weird… it didn’t for him, and had been like this the last few days. (he even thought I’d had the site removed or something… nope!) I thought that was extremely funny, since others had certainly been able to access it the last few days… and of course, I had no problems with it.
So why does the site seemingly work for everyone else, but not for him? It’s not because he’s in Australia, and somehow this blocks all Canadian sites, is it? Actually, if someone else who lives in Australia could test it out, I’d be happy. If not, I have other Aussie friends who could do that for me. (yes, I know Australia is a huge country… but humor me)
We have NO idea why it doesn’t work now, when it has before. His blog works, as does Kemporalia… but apparently mine doesn’t. It all makes no sense, because all three of the blogs are on the same server! Definitely blows away his theory about how his proxy server doesn’t accept it for some odd reason.
I talked to him just now about this issue, and when he tries to access my blog, he gets this:
No, I have no idea where the “.80” in the URL comes from… maybe a port number, according to my extremely limited knowledge of computers. But what makes it really weird is that he was currently downloading a FILE with underscordes in it… and if underscores weren’t allowed in the blogspot domain names, I suspect that I would have been informed when I signed up for one.
He says all the weird stuff that he got usually doesn’t stop him, unless his current proxy settings crap all over it.
It could be that his ISP’s being poopy or playing mad tricks on him, but I don’t know enough about these kinds of things to say for sure. Could also be a server issue… but I have no idea about that, either. Help, please?
