Technically “redirect” has a specific meaning. I interpret it as “if you just sit on your ass the browser will shuffle you along to the new location” but it’s more than that. All I can say is there’s code involved and reading the FAQ put me in a coma.
The guy who’s smarter than me (whom I hoped would do the redirect) has bigger fish to fry than a dipshit blogger. Also he’s somewhere warm and awesome and may be drinking margaritas right now. Meanwhile I’m freezing my balls off in -18 weather and reading obscure FAQs. He wins. I lose. That’s how you know he’s smarter than me.
So I just made a “link in big text“. It worked.
Except it didn’t!
Two commentors say the new IP address was denied to them. Others say the link worked great. WTF?
If you clicked the link and didn’t get an awesome and instant switch to adaptivecurmudgeon.com I need to know. Hit me on the comments and tell me. For that matter if it worked fine, tell me that too.
Presumably there’s a pattern. If there’s a pattern I can find the flaw. If I can find the flaw I can hunt it. If I can hunt it I can kill it. Wish me luck.
