Can someone who knows about such things click on my blogger archives link and explain what the fuck's going on? Hope I haven't lost the lot!

That doesn't look too good.. But it's not a very Blogger/Googly thing to do to just forward a (possibly) obsolete domain to some random cheesy advertising site...

Have you tried logging into your Blogger account?

embarrasingly I've forgotten all the details of how to get in ....

I'm checking if your blog is still in the Google cache... and it is. Whatever happens to the blogspot adress, you can take an hour of your life to save all the texts to your hard disk. Search for your own blog in Google, click in the cached link, and then tweak the link adress to get to any archive; your main archive html is still accesible so you can check them one by one: is still working...

With some more effort, you can even import those entries to Movable Type.

(Sorry if I'm confusing you, I'm very bad at giving instructions in english) (Good luck)

Oh, damn... sorry Mark but what I proposed is not working... it seems that some files are affected and others not... so the cache of the affected ones is also re-directing to that ugly page... Better try harder to remember your Blogger account details -like if you needed me to tell you that...-

Just click on "forgot" on the Blogger login panel and it'll let you enter either your username or email address and send you a reminder.

hey mark,

your archive is still up.

if you go to the google cache

and click on the archives sidebar, it's all still there...

sorry about log-in problems, tho.

He's talking about the "blogger k-punk" link.

I’ve everything apart from August 9-17, which fell into 404 limbo some months ago.

are you a stalker, sphaleotas?

Posted by: heinz siegler at August 10, 2004 10:55 PM

No, just a grey eminence.

Thanks so much everyone! Sphaleotas has come through and provided me with the back up --- lesson: must save entries properly...

just wondered:

what would importing to MT entail?

(And your answer must NOT contain any ludicrous and groundless assaults on your abilities in English!!! :-)

Posted by: mark at August 11, 2004 01:19 AM

What does "entail" mean, señor?

Posted by: Diego at August 11, 2004 12:19 PM

LOL --- come on your English is better than most English speakers'....
