Hello - there was a bit of a wobble in access through "forum.homemadelife.com" earlier - I think it was to do with upgrades at forumotion - we now seem to have encrypted connections for no extra charge.

I think I have it sorted now.

I use Firefox as a browser, so have an extra bar with links to all my favourite sites, making it very quick to find them. Last week the link to The Homemade Life unaccountably disappeared, and I couldn't get on to the site, even through Google. I had to wait until someone posted and I got an email, then used the link in the email.

Unrelated, apart from the comment about Firefox, but did you hear that Mozilla are having difficulties?

I hadn't noticed Dandelion's post until now - the usual reason for bookmarks disappearing on changes to a website is that your bookmark doesn't point to the main site, but one of the pages on it which gets changed. So bookmark one of:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
(front page which I never got around to building, but has a redirection to the forum)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
(Aliased to the forum itself ....)

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
(the actual place where the forum lives)

The last one may work if the homemadelife.com links fail. The Forum itself is hosted on a (free) commercial site Forumotion, which Adrian set up. I'd quite like it not to be on a commercial site so as to have full control, but there's no easy way to leave.

I hadn't heard of problems at Mozilla, that sounds a worry. I know thunderbird split off from Mozilla a while ago. Any more info HL ?

I saw a report on Twitter about it, but it was already late, so I didn't look into it any further.
Don't expect there was anything we could do about it anyway.

Life plodding on, much the same. Sorry I've not been by.

A quick search shows that Mozilla signed up to a deal with Google which has Google stay as the Firefox default search engine, in return for a cash injection from Google to Mozilla of unspecified amount, but enough to keep them afloat (though possibly slimmed down) for the next few years at least.

Although I have hesitations about Google and its influence, it remains IMHO by a clear margin the best search engine for seeming to understand what you are looking for. Tried DuckDuckGo in a period of paranoia and found it pretty poor.

Now that I know that I need to Google the handmade life rather than the homemade life if I lose my bookmark again, I should be fine, and thank you for the explanation CH.
