After the weird service interruption today, I have decided to take some precautionary emergency measures. Should something really bad suddenly happen to this blog, for whatever reasons, I will continue blogging at the following address:
http://thesaker.ucoz.com/blog (please write this down somewhere)
I cannot imagine having both my blog and my email address shot at the same time but, just in case, I have this backup email address now:
firstname.lastname@example.org (please write this down somewhere)
Both of these services (ucoz.com and mail.ru) are hosted in Russia and appear to be taking security very seriously. I hope that this will provide us all with some redundancy.
In the coming days and weeks, I will try to give some halfway decent appearance to the backup blog at ucoz.com, but its basic functionality is already working, including comments.
I am still looking for a good blog mirroring option, but in the meantime we now have something to fall back on should a sudden long term “outage” or “service interruption” happen. Better safe than sorry.
Sorry for these headaches, but I think I should heed the numerous warnings I am getting from friends and readers.
Many thanks and kind regards,
