Why has MD been moving around?
Two of the sites (left column) hosted with netfirms, exceeded
their 'freebie' space limit and were- suddenly- locked! I could
neither add, nor delete, nor edit anything! Moral of the story: What
comes freely- goes away freely too- often suddenly! So much so, I
could not even fix the index pages which got overwritten
accidentally. Therefore, number 1 and 3 websites (left), do not start with index
pages, which normally gets loaded automatically when you visit the
website. To solve this problem I have given the
links with subsidiary page address, which works
almost as well as the index itself.
The second website hosted with bravehost, did not
offer FTP facility to upload files, under its free plan; So it was
given up after hosting some pages related to Sihi 2004. The
mountaindiary.com domain expired (along with email@example.com
mail ID) in the third week of September 2006 and was not renewed; I felt
that enough pages flying the MD banner are all over internet (try a
search with google and see for yourself!) and therefore MD need not
book a top level domain any more.
Yes, in the process, these leafs of the diary have
scattered all over and sometimes the internal links may not work as
expected. If you are looking for a specific page, try either an
external search engine Google for example, or the internal one (picosearch)
on the front page, under 'man on the mountain' picture.
Many friends and 'travelers' have contributed to MD;
Recently, I was looking for some Public Health information on
internet and was pleasantly surprised when the search returned one
of our own MD pages: it was a SIHI output titled: 'Public Health
Education in Chakrata Hills: Issues and challenges' (by Avita
Sooknanan & Samidha Joglekar, SIHI 2003)!! I sincerely thank all the
readers and the editors..
