Problem in Blogroll Listings

Someone pointed out to me that my blog’s home page cannot be reached from many blogrolls. This is because its address is coded there as, which used to be the address of the blog’s home page. (The blog could be reached at because the directory containing blogger.htm also contained a file, index.htm, that redirected to blogger.htm.)

    I guess, for now, I'll just have to remember to use the current post and then click on your headline banner from there.

    Bit buggeredd, wot?

  2. Malcolm,

    Thanks for the feedback.
