Direct URLs (username.deardiary.net) again

The direct urls to your diary (ie, http://username.deardiary.net) should now start working again over the next few days – depending on individuals Internet Providers. Mine is working already – but then my ISP is good 😉

Hamipiks has also now migrated and is working again, so pictures should be back up too.

Those that have noticed notifies aren’t always working seem to have addresses on yahoo.com (which has never worked properly) and comcast.net which have recently blocked so many servers due to ‘antispam requirements’ that it’s not funny. I am trying to remove our IP address from the various blacklists but it’s fairly hard when people sign up for notify lists one year and then when they forget why they did it they report our server as a spammer because they keep seeing these strange notifies….

You’d probably be better off using RSS instead of notify lists – notify lists are prone to being trapped by antispam rules (which didn’t exist back when the notify system was introduced!). I have added an RSS link to the bottom of diary entry pages which can be clicked on to get the URL you can add to your RSS reader. If you don’t have an RSS reader, Firefox is excellent, or use your friend Google to find one :-)

The RSS link looks like this ->>
