Welcome to Moorcock's Miscellany

Dear reader,

Many people have given their valuable time to create a website for the pleasure of posing questions to Michael Moorcock, meeting people from around the world, and mining the site for information. Please follow one of the links above to learn more about the site.

Thank you,
Reinart der Fuchs

    Inspired by the behaviour of British persons abroad (the ones in Union Jack boxer shorts) we are now also known as "les fuckoffs"... :oops:

    Aha, I suspected there was probably more to this than Berry's credit card payments. This site does get an amazing amount of traffic, so I guess if you're going to blame anyone, it would have to be Michael Moorcock for bringing us all here in the first place!

    of them, of course, are fair, but since when did cross-Channel
    sniping need to be fair? ;-]

    It's worse than we thought.

    I wrote our web host:

    I get 403 messages when I hit my websites! Please let me know what is going on!
    Hi,

    It looks like your site is using a lot of server resources and was causing the server to crash. I have turned your site back on but you may need to look into getting a dedicated server if this continues.

    Best Regards
    WTF?

    :(

    I believe I said "it's been up and down all week" or something like that to Mr Air.

    I hope it's not my ISP punishing me for being a Rosbif.

    Peh, only giving them half a tale... :) What you like, you??? 8O

    With me it just seemed to be down whenever I came here, for all I know it was up the rest of the time! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Oops, I meant to say that it seemed to be down at various intervals over the course of a week at certain times....

    Sounds like good old-fashioned political censorship to me - aided by new-fangled globalised "multilateral treaties". Scary. :(

I did try emptying my cookies and re-loggin in and it didn't work immediately, but I did get on the next day (perhaps after a restart?)
    That is very strange. I cannot imagine what happened. My outage was less than 24 hours from what I can tell. Perhaps Etive was experiencing some other coincidental problem. As an example, perhaps her ISP's DNS server was having trouble.

    Yikes, how about, "Thanks Berry for footing the bill for such a great site!"

    I guess it doesn't matter if we're o.k. now, but thought you'd want to know any how.
