I can see you

Visible to me as well. Please don't go off into the ether. And boo to uncooperative passwords - I had to do a double reset the other day because I hadn't noticed Cap Lock was on.... doh.

Sorry, I was unclear, I meant killed my ability to be alive and continue to update in the future.

I haven't been able to solve it yet, and not for want of trying...

Panic not, if I do get totally locked out, Delayed Plan A (delayed from 2019 before we found Coven Nord and decided to relocate): using a new template and restoring from the saved version that the hosting company make (hopefully) will kick in one day.

Proably not for a while though as there are just not enough hours and enough energy in the day to do what needs doing currently, and it needs Mr BW to help, and he has got even more things on his to do list than me.

Still, I could I suppose just update in this comments box, until it breaks...

Oh no! Hope things get sorted out eventually. It may need a spell...

I think it may have been a spell that caused it Tim...

I presume you saw Dilbert on Sunday? The same problems.

Someone has also placed a horrible link on your “Familiars” list. Are you able to delete “Aprosexic”?
They may have been able to easily hack your site as it’s address starts http and not the more secure https.

Richard - no, it wasn't hacked, and it is all part of the same problem of not being able to do anything to the template as it's 18 years old and the site won't completely rebuild itself if I try. The CMS on this site and how it works/doesn't work is really archaic by today's standards.

Aprosexic was one of the very early UK bloggers and when he stopped blogging his domain name eventually lapsed and was bought for 'inappropriate purposes'. About half the familiars links are like that. Danger don't go there! Sorry!

Once we have time (when the building work is finished and when we have sold the two houses) it will all be sorted.
