Well… here goes nothing! Or everything!
Apparently, we in the UK have been blocked from accessing WordPress servers due to a blog that someone had created that had infringed WordPress’ terms of service and had been flagged by the Internet Watch Foundation.
Problem found, and with things getting back to normal, access should greatly improve over the next few days and steps are being taken to ensure this type of problem doesn’t happen again.
There was a similar glitch last year, so only time will tell, but for now all we can do is move forward.
Or try to, as in my case.
We’ll see shortly if this post posts, but I’m still having the issue of not being logged in when I visit sites that don’t have wordpress in their web addresses; this may be linked to the ISP blocking problem or it may be a different problem, I’ll have to see how things go over the next few days.
I’ve ‘put up’ with things for a couple of weeks now and haven’t complained that much at all, I must say. Hardly a word has been typed regarding the issues at hand.
So, as I started to say in my last post, I’m back. Once again… although I did fall down another hole to get here!
It’s as though I’m walking across a giant Snakes and Ladders board, where the snakes and ladders have all been hidden; so one minute I find myself climbing upwards with great speed, and in the next minute I find myself slipping back down again with no rhyme, reason or warning.
Hopefully from now on, I’ll find the ladders every time!
Which will mean that my ‘proper’ posts will start again very shortly. We’ll see!
POST EDIT 21:44 29/07/13
I’ve stepped on another snake, and once again have found myself in the depths of the darkest murky corner of the darklands of cyberspace, with no access to the blog. Hopefully this update will get through, Live Writer works wonders at times. My proper posts on the other hand, may be something of a distant dream.
See you all soon.
