Way back when we were building the Rolls Royce of Arab dot com portals, at a time when a handful of people in the region were online and were very happy riding a Skoda, our worst nightmare was server problems and broken links. The baddest message on a screen was a 404.

I haven't seen that bare page much since and up until Nov 2nd, when this blog was 404ing, every hour of the day until early this morning. Quelle nightmare! Between a custom domain transfer (because of the pressure from those who mock this second life name), Google/GoDaddy online support, Google Apps, SetUpMadeEasy, and a bad connectivity week in Jordan, I've been in cyber purgatory for days.
It's a horrible feeling of homelessness by the way. With a tinge of embarrassment!
Apologies for the broken links in the feeds out there and thanks to those who lent a sympathetic ear :)
The hero who resuscitated it, and to whom I'm very thankful is Manish from SetUpMadeEasy. Shukran!
