You may remember that I experienced a few issues with blog, this week.

If you try to access my website on a daily basis, firstly, what’s wrong with you? You clearly have too much time on your hands. Secondly, everything would have appeared fine and dandy for you, both Friday and Saturday. That’s because the problems had been resolved. However, my blog was not launching for me!

After much swearing and troubleshooting, I worked out that there was only an access issue, when trying to view my website using the home broadband connection. Viewing over 4G, on my mobile phone, or through a proxy (parents, ask your kids what this is) was not a problem.

This resulted in countless email exchanges, between a very helpful support guru, named Ricky, and myself. Yesterday afternoon, I turned into Bianca Jackson, from mid-1990s EastEnders fame, with my frequent pestering of “RICKAAAAYYYY!”.

As I have already mentioned, Ricky was very helpful and certainly earnt his pennies. He made a lot of excellent suggestions, but it was me who, in the end, discovered the final and decisive fix…

Out of pure frustration, I took our home broadband router and I kicked it. Very hard…

I didn’t kick it in the literal sense, like the photo above, of that gentle giant, Vincent Kompany, murdering a Watford player, with his football boot. I kicked it in the IT geek sense. Turning it off and back on again – well, just disconnecting and reconnecting – to generate a new IP aďdress, for the broadband connection.


I suspect that I have sent you to sleep with all that jargon shite. The main thing is that you can now access my blog, without problems – although, why you would want to return after today’s rubbish post, is a bloody mystery to me.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
