A reader has drawn my attention, through a comment, to numerous typos in my post “The Faith of Abomination”. For this I have apologised, but need to explain further.
For the past day or so, I have experienced some extraordinary and inexplicable difficulties accessing my site, which began exactly as I was preparing that post. There were some difficulties in trying to save the first draft, and ever since then, I have been unable to open any WordPress sites from my laptop – or from my partner’s desktop. The problem has not been restricted to this site, or to the Open Tabernacle, where I also write – but also extends to those WordPress sites which I sometimes visit just as a reader. Obviously, without access to my own site, I have not been able to edit what was just a first draft: I did not even realise it had been published, until I had email notification of some comments.
The problem remains unresolved – although I am working on it. In the meantime, I have established that I can access the site from my local library, which is what I am doing now. I have also established, by means of a little test with the Guardian story on the Conservatives advice on gay rights, that I can still post indirectly from Livewriter, but I cannot see what I have done, and editing and picture possibilities are more limited.
I hope to resolve the basic problem soon, but if not please be patient. I have a lot of material that I want to be writing about right now, and will continue to do so: there is important stuff on Ash Wednesday, for instance, and some material on church history that is worth sharing.
However, if I cannot get the procedures back to normal, please excuse make some allowances if the next few posts should appear without pictures, and with poor formatting or editing.
UPDATE: Problem fixed.
Once I identified that the problem was restricted to the house, but affected both PC’s, I realised that it had to be a router problem. I have now fixed it, “Alone”, as the fictional criminal lawyer Rumple of the Bailey would have it, “and without a leader.” (But accompanied by a great deal of muttering and cursing along the way.)
Normal service should now be resumed.
