TECH BLEGS....If you're tired of my using this blog for technology blegs, you should skip this post. If not, I have two questions. Any help appreciated.
- Yesterday a reader sent me a little icon called a "favicon" to go with the site. It's the icon that shows up in the URL bar of your browser, or next to the bookmark if you have the site bookmarked. I loaded it into our root directory as instructed, but apparently it only shows up in Safari. In Explorer and Firefox, no luck. Does anyone know why?
- I intermittently have problems getting to certain sites. A couple of months ago Salon went dead for a week, and then suddenly became accessible again. Then a few days later another site went out. Then ThinkProgress went down, and right now it's Slate. The behavior is the same each time: For about a week or so I get a "Server not Found" error when I try to get to the site, and then it abruptly reappears and everything is fine.
This time, though, I discovered by accident that Slate is only inaccessible if I go there directly from a bookmark. If I click over from another site, it's fine. This behavior is the same in both Firefox and Explorer. Anyone have any clues about what's going on?
