BLOGGER SCREWED ME!

Normally, I'm a defender of Blogger as a great blog creator and content manager for beginners as well as experts. However, they've recently made some sort of change to their servers that has me pissed off. And I don't know that it really affects that many people besides me, and it's hard to explain,... well here goes.

First off, my main domain for most of my personal stuff is Arconati.us. This domain is registered with GoDaddy and I use many different subdomains to forward onto my various categorized blogs. Here is where the problem starts. Currently the home page of this blog is at -

http://arcojedi.blogspot.com/
- but I don't link to it that way. Most of the time, I link to it as -
http://blog.arconati.us/
- which I have set to forward to the proper spot. This still works with no problems. However, if I wanted to link to a certain page, such my recent post entitle Download Free 3D Snake I would link to it using the subdomain -
http://blog.arconati.us/2006/07/download-free-3d-snake.html
This would forward correctly, with only an extra slash after the domain -
http://arcojedi.blogspot.com//2006/07/download-free-3d-snake.html
Up until recently, this still loaded the page just fine, but at some point in the last week or so it stopped. The issue is that I have multiple links throughout my many sites and blogs and I also have many pages ranked in search engines that will no longer work. For example, try this MSN Search: site:arconati.us. Three of the 10 results don't work and who knows how many countless others.

I'm not going to gripe out loud through official channels because technically, this is free software. But it does kinda suck.

With the update to the blogger software and the fact that they are using custom domains, the problems mentioned in this post are mostly no longer an issue. Thanks!
