Tangled Bank problems?

Ummm, anyone know anything about this week’s host for the Tangled Bank? It’s supposed to be at, but that site immediately bumps me into a redirect to something else.

I also haven’t heard back from the host—if anyone knows him (or if you are him), drop me a line and let me know what’s up. If there’s a problem, I’ll recruit someone to fill in the gap on short notice.

    It was working last night without redirect.

    Blogspot has been having pretty screwy problems all day long. Probably something related to that.

    Looks like a domain or DNS hijacking.

    The blog had been silent for quite a while.

    Blogspot announced they would be down for maintenance from 2pm PDST.

    In the source code for the blog I can see that someone edited the template to add a function “ygorvuvgko” that is forwarding to that search site, but it is doing it in a sneaky way – by using ASCII character code numbers (60!115!99!114!105!112!116!62!…. etc.) that translate into the command.

    So either this site was hijacked or the blogger has sold his soul to a search site :-). I’ll send a report in to Blogger but I suspect you’ll need an alterna-host for Tangled Bank.

    Noticed that too… If you can’t fill the gap in between, I wouldn’t mind doing an extra long one next time (it’s my turn November 8th), so basically taking links from four weeks instead of two.
