Home for a Few Days

I got done in Killeen, Texas on Tuesday. I got really lucky – the storms have been hanging around, but I just managed to get my work in without having to spend more time. I drove from Texas to Missouri on Wednesday and had a few days to try to catch up with everything – I had planned on having the whole week, and figured I could get at least two reports done. Tomorrow I’m going to Anchorage, Alaska, for two weeks. I guess I’ll be writing on the plane!

I finally figured out some very elementary things that had, until now, escaped my notice. Many people come to my blog from a search engine result that uses my old www.gregrperry.com/blog format, and some come from links that I had previously seeded in technical message boards. They’ve all been getting an error page! No wonder my traffic is down. I have thrown up a hasty explanation and workaround on my standard error page, but I should really write something smarter – a PHP page that takes the sought link and rewrites it to the blog.gregrperry.com format and then uses a redirect. But it’s been a long time since I’ve done any coding, and just writing has been tough to keep up with.

I knew that some of my images weren’t showing because I had hard-coded the source of the images instead of using relative ones, but what I didn’t realize is just how extensively my own internal links, referencing other posts, are nearly all screwed up. Well, a smart error page might fix that problem for now, too. Still, it’s going to take a lot of work to make everything right. *Sigh*
